Brendan Allen remained perfect in main events on Saturday when he avenged his loss to Chris Curtis at UFC Fight Night 240.

Allen (24-5 MMA, 12-2 UFC) went tooth-and-nail with Curtis (31-11 MMA, 5-3 UFC) to take a split decision in the middleweight bout at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. It was a rematch of a December 2021 fight, which Curtis won with an upset TKO.

With a seven-fight winning streak under his belt, Allen thinks he’s worthy of a title shot against 185-pound champion Dricus Du Plessis. Should he get it, though?

Watch the video above for thoughts and analysis on Allen’s future after UFC Fight Night 240.
