Ahead of his UFC debut next week, Brendan Allen checks in with The Scrap to discuss the middleweight bout with Kevin Holland at UFC on ESPN 6. The event takes place Oct. 18 at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass. and will be headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Chris Weidman and Dominick Reyes.
“All In” talks about getting the news that originally scheduled opponent Eric Spicely was injured and out of the fight, how Wellington Turman was supposed to be the replacement and why that fight couldn’t come together, nearly fighting Holland in LFA, how he sees the fight playing out, being around Belal Muhammad and Jared Gordon in the gym and why everyone needs to stay on their toes, Michael Bisping’s viral eye video, and much more.
Check out the full interview with Brendan Allen as he prepares to make his Octagon debut against Kevin Holland next Friday night at UFC Boston below.
