MixCollage 18 Nov 2023 03 45 PM 9787

Following last week’s massive flagship card at Madison Square Garden, the Octagon returns to Las Vegas, Nevada and the Apex facility for a UFC Vegas 82 card – with an eye-catching middleweight fight between number ten ranked contender, Brendan Allen, and Scottish grappler number thirteen rated challenger, Paul Craig slated to take headlining honors.

Riding a hugely-impressive five-fight winning run, which has seen him land four victories by way of rear-naked choke submissions to boot, Allen most recently landed a blistering opening round submission stoppage of Brazilian contender, Bruno Silva at UFC Jacksonville back in August of this year, improving to 22-5 as a professional.

As for former light heavyweight contender, Craig, the Airdrie grappler most recently made his middleweight divisional bow at UFC London back in July, turning in a divisional landing submission win over Andre Muniz – snapping a two-fight losing skid to both Johnny Walker, and Volkan Oezdemir. Tonight’s fight with Allen will mark Craig’s first in a main event slot since landing in the promotion back in 2016. 

In the night’s co-main event at UFC Vegas 82, Michael Morales takes on Jake Matthews at the welterweight limit over the course of three rounds.
