Brendan Allen's record

Allen has a professional mixed martial arts record of 22 wins and five defeats from 27 fights. Five of those victories have come via knockout, but he is better known for his ability on the ground, submitting 13 of his opponents.

His first fight on a big card came in 2021 when he beat Karl Roberson thanks to an ankle lock and he has only lost once since then, Chris Curtis getting the better of him in December 2021.

Allen has since pushed on, though, and while he beat Sam Alvey at light heavyweight, he then returned to middleweight in June 2022 to beat Jacob Malkoun. He was awarded "Performance of the Night" in his wins over Krzysztof Jotko and Andre Muniz, while he beat Bruno Silva in his last outing in June.

Paul Craig's record

Paul Craig has a professional mixed martial arts record of 17 wins, six defeats and one draw from 24 fights. He is known for his strength on the canvas and has submitted 13 of his opponents.

He made his UFC debut in 2016, submitting Henrique da Silva via an armbar in Sacramento. He then lost four of his next six bouts in the UFC before going six unbeaten between September 2019 and March 2022.

Successive defeats to Volkan Oezdemir and Johnny Walker at light heavyweight forced him to change his plans, but his decision to drop down to middleweight was vindicated when he stopped Muniz to win "Performance of the Night" in July this year.
