Recap Brendan Allen’s Six-Fight Win Streak

Sometimes it feels like UFC matchmakers have a funny way of doing things. “Oh, so you just had a super good performance that you ended with a submission, well we are going to give you a feared submission specialist next to see what you can do.”

That’s what it felt like when UFC announced Allen versus submission ace André Muniz. In the lead-up to the fight, Allen was confident that he was going to have his way with Muniz in the grappling department, and he wasn’t afraid of his submission threats.

For most of the first round and the beginning of the second, the two exchanged on the feet, with each having some good success until Allen reversed a takedown attempt from Muniz. He landed some nice ground-and-pound and ended the round looking like the momentum was going his way.

Late in the third, Allen caught a kick from Muniz and took the Brazilian to the ground. He maneuvered into mount and found Muniz’s back and chin for another win by rear naked choke. It was a great win for Allen, putting him into the rankings and showing that he’s made real additions to his game.
