Brendan Allen UFC

Brendan Allen and David Onama are moved to UFC Jacksonville after their respective bouts at UFC Vegas 74 were canceled.

Brendan Allen was supposed to headline UFC Vegas 74 against Jack Hermannson. Hermannson pulled out of the bout due to an injury. As per Alex Behunin, Allen will now face Bruno Silva at UFC Jacksonville on June 24, 2023.

Silva snapped his two fights losing streak as he defeated Brad Tavares at UFC Vegas 71. He lost both of his bouts in 2022 against Alex Pereira and Gerald Meerschaert. Silva made his UFC debut in 2021 and has wins over Wellington Turman, Andrew Sanchez and Jordan Wright.

Allen remains unbeaten in four UFC bouts since the start of 2022 with wins over Sam Alvey, Jacob Malkoun, Krzysztof Jotko and André Muniz. His last loss came to Chris Curtis at UFC Fight Night in December 2021.

David Onama was facing Khusein Askhabov at UFC Vegas 74 earlier, but Askhabov suffered an injury. He will now face Gabriel Santos, per a report from Laerte Viana of Super Lutas Youtube Channel.

Santos made his UFC debut earlier this year at UFC 286 in London where he lost to Lerone Murphy. He is a former LFA Featherweight Champion after he beat José Delano at LFA 151 in January this year.

Onama is also coming off a loss in his last bout against Nate Landwehr in August last year at a Fight Night event. His bout against Khusein was his second bout to be canceled this year after a booking against Jarno Errens was canceled due to Errens’ shoulder injury.

UFC Jacksonville will be headlined by a featherweight bout between Josh Emmet and Ilja Topuria, and will take place at Vystars Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fl, on June 24.
