    Brendan Allen inside a round and a half.
    Borderline mismatch.

    Interesting fight. Roberson looked pretty mediocre against Vettori, but he clearly has potential. Allen has looked pretty good so far.

    Karls only entertaining when he's getting yelled at in hotel lobbies.

    I think the path to victory of taking Karl down and dominating him from the top looks pretty established at the moment and I don't see why Brendan can't do it.

    Is Weili really headlining over Valentina? Oof. She about to get even saltier!

    I think Brendan could even pull guard and get it done. Karl's pretty rudimentary on the mat.

    No word yet but I just can't see Weili being in co-main after being out for a year and being on the higher weight class. I don't mind who headlines though

    Brendan Allen looked like a future contender during his first three fights in the UFC.

    I don't think there was ever an explanation from him for why he fought the way he did versus Strickland but if the fighter that showed up versus Strickland shows up he will not last the first round.

    The same guy who submitted Kevin Holland in his debut was getting toyed with by a guy who had just resumed his UFC career after two years off; that performance was terrible no other way to describe it.

    Hope he rebounds with a nice finish + bonus.

    Nice fight, hope it's prelims, I'd like to see another big fight on the main.

    Strickland has looked like an absolute beast since he came back, I don't think that loss will age badly.
