Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Mirsad Bektic will put his undefeated record on the line in hostile territory, as he faces England’s featherweight Arnold Allen at UFC 204 in Manchester on Oct. 8, the promotion announced on Thursday.

Fighting in the fourth different country in his fourth UFC bout, Bektic (10-0) looks to stay unbeaten after scoring wins over Chas Skelly, Paul Redmond and Lucas Martins in the United States, Sweden and Brazil, respectively.

Allen (11-1), who fought the majority of his career in England, is 2-0 under the UFC banner with a third-round submission over Alan Omer and a unanimous decision against Yaotzin Meza.

UFC 204 takes place at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, and features England’s first UFC champion Michael Bisping versus Dan Henderson for the 185-pound title. In the co-main event, Gegard Mousasi faces Vitor Belfort.
