After a scheduled fight with Ian Heinisch fell through last weekend, Brendan Allen won’t have to wait long for his next booking after all.
Allen was booked to face Heinisch at UFC Vegas 13, but one day before the card, the latter tested positive for COVID-19 and the fight was canceled.
More recently, Allen reported via social media that he’s going to fight Sean Strickland at UFC Vegas 14 on Saturday. MMA Junkie has also confirmed with sources that the fight has been added to the November 14th card.
