Eryk Anders heard Brendan Allen call him out for a rematch at UFC Boston and is quite confident that the result from their first encounter would be a similar one.
Anders defeated Allen via unanimous decision at LFA 14 in June 2017 to capture the vacant LFA middleweight title. “Ya Boi” would not get the chance to defend the belt as, less than a month later, he would get the call to the UFC.
On Wednesday, Anders checked in with The Scrap to discuss the callout, along with his recent win over Gerald Meerschaert — Allen’s teammate at Roufusport — at UFC Tampa, how he felt like he performed in the fight, his return to 185 after competing in the light heavyweight division for his last couple of fights, what his goals are for 2020, Walt Harris’ surge in the heavyweight division, and much more.
