Despite losing his most recent fight to Alexander Volkanovski for the UFC featherweight title on July 2, 2022, Holloway (23-7, 19-7 UFC) is still the top-ranked UFC featherweight contender.

Allen, who hails from England, is 19-1 in his MMA career, including a perfect 10-0 in the UFC. Overall, he has won his last 12 fights.

It is believed that a win over Holloway would put Allen in prime position to fight for the featherweight belt next.

Allen recently revealed that he was offered the UFC 286 co-main event on March 18 in London against Holloway but was not able to take the fight due to a rib injury.
