UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs Allen

News Content

What’s up Kansas City? Violence is coming to your town this weekend!

We've got one of the better Fight Night cards set to be headlined by the fan-favourite Max "Blessed" Holloway inside a packed arena in Missouri.

UFC 287 was amazing last weekend as our main man regained his throne with as many style points as one can achieve.

This week we're looking forward to a fun fight night with crowds and hope to pick some more winners following the tqo winning slips last weekend, so let's dive right in!

Max Holloway vs Arnold Allen

The former Featherweight champion and the best boxer in the UFC is back this weekend to prove why he is still one of the best and he will have to go through one hungry Brit in Arnold Allen.

Max Holloway is the best volume-based striker in the game who is capable of outpacing almost anyone in the UFC.

He has broken punch stats records and put on some fun wars in his 26-fight UFC stint.

Holloway has faced some elite competition in Alexander Volkanovski, Jose Aldo, Frankie Edgar, Dustin Poirier, etc.

His most recent losses have come to the current champion apart from which he has been beating solid contenders like Calvin Kattar and Interim champ Yair Rodriguez in fun fights.

This week he will look to put his name back for title contention with an impressive outing against a top 4 Featherweight.

Arnold Allen has been biding his time and putting in the work quietly with an impressive 10-fight UFC win streak which has earned him this big showcase.

Allen is a technical kickboxer who has shown to have knockout power in his recent fights along with impressive BJJ skills to rely on.

He has beaten some tough contenders like Dan Hooker and Calvin Kattar on his unbeaten run via finish.

This fight will be a fight fan's delight as we will witness two impressive strikers trying to impose their strategies on the feet over 25 minutes or less.

Holloway will look to build momentum as the fight goes on and will rely on his durability and cardio to take this into deep waters.

Allen will have to earn respect early by throwing some power shots and not letting Max get in his rhythm.

Best Bets

Our first bet this week comes on a fun Bantamweight bout between Pedro Munhoz & Chris Gutierrez.

Munhoz has been on the decline having won only 1 of his last 6 fights and contrarily Chris has been riding some serious momentum with an 8-fight unbeaten streak.

Gutierrez will be much faster and slicker on the feet, and we think he takes Munhoz down via a finish on the feet or a dominant decision.

Our next pick comes on an intriguing Light Heavyweight matchup between Dustin Jacoby and Azamat Murzakanov.

This should be a fun fight that will play out on the feet for the most part and given the knockout credentials on both sides, we think this one ends inside the distance.

Our final pick this weekend comes at our main event.

This fight is very exciting and should not disappoint as every Max Holloway fight.

We think Allen will start strong and pose some problems through his power hooks, outside leg kicks, and clinch work.

Although we think Max Holloway is too durable and will survive the early onslaught while building momentum.

Ultimately, we think Holloway is more experienced, durable, and has the championship experience to pull this one off in a fight of the night worthy show.
