Brendan Allen Versus Sean Strickland Added To Saturday’s UFC “Fight Night” Card

Saturday’s UFC card has gotten a short-notice addition to the lineup, as a middleweight fight between Brendan Allen and Sean Strickland has been added to the card.

Allen announced the bout on his Instagram on Monday.

The fight is scheduled to happen at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

“It all happened super fast, but we got everything done and put together,” said Allen in his post.
