Max Holloway vs. Arnold Allen Set for UFC Fight Night in Kansas City

A venue and city are set for the Featherweight clash between two contenders.

A massive featherweight fight pitting Max Holloway against top contender Arnold Allen is being targeted to headline a UFC Fight Night event on April 15.

UFC broadcast partner ESPN first announced the news. Contracts have yet to be finalized however verbal agreements are in place.

The 31-year-old Hawaiian is one of the most decorated fighters in the division’s history, holding notable wins over Jose Aldo (x2), Brian Ortega, Frankie Edgar, Charles Oliveira, Yair Rodriguez, Calvin Kattar, and more.

In his most recent fight, Holloway suffered a July 2022 decision loss to Alexander Volkanovski to drop to 0-3 in his series with the current champ.

Allen (19-1), meanwhile, is tied with Volkanovski for the second longest win streak in UFC featherweight history.

His 10 straight octagon victories have propelled him into a No. 5 ranking on MMA Fighting’s Global Rankings, and his run includes wins over Kattar, Dan Hooker, Sodiq Yusuff, Gilbert Melendez, and more.
