Undefeated middleweight contender Andre Muniz returns on Feb. 25 against Brendan Allen in Las Vegas, multiple people with knowledge of the booking told MMA Fighting following a report by Ag. Fight.

The UFC Fight Night card will be topped by Nikita Krylov vs. Ryan Spann.

“Sergipano” (23-4) re-enters the cage after a perfect 5-0 run with the company, which includes submission victories over Ronaldo Souza and Eryk Anders. In his most recent bout, the Brazilian defeated Uriah Hall via unanimous decision.

Allen (20-5) won his past three fights in the UFC, including rear-naked chokes over Sam Alvey and Krzysztof Jotko. A former LFA middleweight champion, the 26-year-old won eight of 10 so far in the UFC, including a victorious debut over Kevin Holland in 2019.
