Kattar appeared to injure his leg late in the first round and hit the deck after taking a leg kick just eight seconds into the second round, bringing an unfortunate end to Saturday’s main event at UFC Vegas 63.
A crestfallen Allen could barely summon the energy to call for a title shot against champ Alexander Volkanovski, knowing the ending of his most recent victory was far short of the statement called for by the 145-pound champ.
Here’s how fighters reacted to Arnold Allen’s win at UFC Vegas 63.
That’s more than likely ACL. I tore mine the exact same way landing from a switch knee. #UFCVegas63— Alan Jouban (@AlanJouban) October 30, 2022
