Arnold Allen will put his unbeaten run in the UFC’s Octagon on the line when he faces Jordan Rinaldi at UFC London.
The UFC announced the featherweight fight through its social media feeds Tuesday.
Allen (13-1-0) is coming off his third-round submission win over Mads Burnell at UFC Liverpool, forcing the stoppage late in the bout after struggling with his opponent’s wrestling attacks early on. He has yet to taste defeat in the UFC, seeing off all four of his opponents: Alan Omer, Yaotzin Meza, Makwan Amirkhani and Burnell.
The British prospect was drafted into the UFC ranks at just 21 years old on short notice and scored another late submission stoppage over Omer at UFC Berlin.
Rinaldi (13-6-0) got back to winning ways in his last outing with a unanimous decision win over recently released Jason Knight.
“All Day” is currenly 2-2 as a UFC fighter. He made his debut as a lightweight on short notice, losing a unanimous decision to promotional stalwart and veteran campaigner, Abel Trujillo. In his next trip to the Octagon, Rinaldi scored a Von Flue choke finish over Alvaro Herrera. He was stopped in the first-round of his next bout when he faced surging lightweight, Gregor Gillespie.
