Sam Alvey vs Brendan Allen Fight Breakdown and Prediction
Allen has a BJJ black belt and hence is a good grappler. He will also be more comfortable implementing his skills at light heavyweight. Brendan’s last victory against Punahele showed he can put up the volume required as he outstruck Soriano with 94 strikes in a 3 round bout.
Nevertheless, his loss against Chris Curtis also exposed his chin as he got rocked by a right hook. So, Allen has to be careful regarding that, as Alvey certainly has the knockout power considering he has put 19 of his opponents to sleep.Allen is versatile and is a rising prospect of the promotion while Alvey is on a downfall. Brendan should take the fight to the ground and look for fast submission. The only trouble for Allen is Alvey’s hard counter left, if he manages to avoid that this should seal the fight for him.
