Brendan Allen vs. Kyle Daukaus continued the action.
The two fighters met in a middleweight bout on Saturday night (June 27, 2020) at the UFC on ESPN 12 event from Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC APEX.
The fight lived up to expectations set out by fans. Allen dropped him with a knee strike while in the clinch then got on top of him and worked over Daukaus with strikes.
From then on, Daukaus flipped the switch and started to use his takedown abilities in order to get the fight down to the ground where he landed some nasty elbows. However, it was Daukaus who was bleeding. The judges gave the win to Allen by decision.
