UFC Books Top Middleweights for April Main Event Fight

Marvin Vettori will fight Brendan Allen in the main event of UFC Vegas 89 on April 6, 2024. The UFC announced the middleweight matchup on January 3.

#5 ranked Vettori has been a middleweight mainstay for several years, and even fought for the middleweight title in a rematch against Israel Adesanya in 2021. “The Italian Dream” hasn’t had a winning streak since 2021, going for win-for-loss in five appearances. On the other hand, #8 Allen is on a six-fight winning streak since his shock knockout loss to Chris Curtis in 2021.

The fight will likely be for top-five status if not title contention. The winner could face the victor between Sean Strickland and Dricus Du Plessis at UFC 297 on January 20 – possibly in a spot on UFC 300 if the promotion decides to rush the matchup.
