Arnold “Almighty” Allen comes into this fight with a 19-1 record overall and since coming to the UFC he has gone 10-0. Allen’s last fight came against Calvin Kattar in October of 2022 and it was eight seconds into the second round that he was able to win the fight by knockout. Two fights ago against Dan Hooker it was halfway through the first round that he finished the fight by knockout.

He is averaging 1.35 takedowns every 15 minutes and he is successful on 50 percent of his takedown attempts. He also stops 76 percent of his opponents takedown attempts. In this fight, Allen needs to find his power, and try to put away this fight early. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Holloway has the gas tank, and I expect his chin is going to hold up against Allen. Holloway is averaging 7.29 significant strikes per minute and he’s going to put the pressure on Allen here. Look for Allen to weardown as the fight goes on, and that’s when Holloway is going to pour it on. Back Holloway on the money line.
