What's next for Brendan Allen?
With this win, Brendan Allen has improved his record to 15-3 and now has improved his UFC record to 3-0. He has emerged as a prospect to look out for and is someone who will be on the MMA fans' radar.
On the other hand, getting sidelined with injuries when you finally get attention does put a damp on momentum but that will all depend on the way he handles his time off. Conor McGregor managed to stay relevant despite suffering from a massive injury in the fight against Max Holloway. It should be fun to see what Brendan Allen's next move will be after he returns from his injury layoff.Published 29 Jun 2020, 17:32 IST
