Holloway (23-7 MMA) will be returning to action for the first time since suffering a lopsided decision defeat to Alexander Volkanovksi at UFC 276 in July of last year. Prior to that setback, ‘Blessed’ was coming off back-to-back unanimous decision victories over Yair Rodriguez and Calvin Kattar respectively.
Meanwhile, Arnold Allen (19-1 MMA) will enter tonight’s UFC Kansas City main event sporting a twelve-fight winning streak, his latest being a TKO victory over Calvin Kattar last October. ‘All Mighty’ suffered his lone loss way back in 2014 before entering the UFC ranks.
UFC Kansas City is co-headlined by another featherweight matchup featuring Edson Barboza taking on Billy Quarantillo.
Barboza (22-11 MMA) will enter the contest looking to snap a two-fight losing skid, his latest being a unanimous decision loss to Bryce Mitchell. The Brazilian striker last tasted victory at UFC 262 in 2021, when he knocked out Shane Burgos.
Meanwhile, Billy Quarantillo (17-4 MMA) last competed at December’s UFC 282 event, where he scored a second-round TKO victory over Alexander Hernandez.
