Kill Cliff FC’s Brendan “All In” Allen scored a $50,000 bonus for the “fight of the night” at UFC Fight Night 211 at the Apex in Las Vegas. You know, the one that Facebook’s owner bought out for his friends. Or he didn’t. Nonetheless, it grossed out his wife.
The quiet arena—it was closed to fans and media—seemed to enliven Allen, 20-5, who scored a rear-naked choke victory over challenger Krzysztof Jotko, 24-6, with 4:17 gone in the first round.
From MMA Junkie:
After the win, Allen called for a matchup against Brazil’s Andre Muniz at the upcoming UFC 283 pay-per-view event in Rio, or a rematch against Anthony Hernandez, which took place before both were in the UFC in 2018.
With Saturday’s win, Allen stretches his current win streak two three, entering on the heels of a rear-naked choke win against Sam Alvey and a unanimous decision win over Jacob Malkoun.
KCFC’s Adam Borics vs. Pitbull
You can’t win them all, but you can try, and that’s what Kill Cliff FC’s Adam Borics did in the headlining match at Bellator 286 this weekend.
The featherweight crown remained on the head of Patricio Freire, aka Pitbull, with a unanimous decision in Long Beach, Calif., despite Borics having landed a TON more punches—91 of 166 thrown to Pitbull’s 52 of 98. But Pitbull was ready for the Hungarian’s signature flying knee, and at least three times he ended up on his back with Pitbull coming after him. Not a good place to be.
The judges scored it 48-47, 49-46, and 50-45 for Brazil’s Pitbull, the most decorated champion in Bellator history, and that was it.
Now Borics, No. 2 in the division, heads back to Kill Cliff FC perhaps to add something to his repertoire. Meanwhile, Pitbull said he was going to drop to bantamweight with the intention of winning world titles in three different weight classes.
