Report: UFC Signs John Allan

A new threat is apparently making his way to the UFC Light Heavyweight Division as Jon Allan has signed a multi-fight deal with the promotion.

It was Allan who made the announcement via Instagram:

Allan (13-5-0) will enter the promotion having won five of his last six bouts, with that latest win coming last month at the Future MMA 6 card. Allan competed on Dana White’s Contender Series Brazil Episode 3, suffering a second round submission loss to Vinicius Moreira. Allan has competed eighteen times as a professional MMA fighter and just two of those bouts went the distance.

There is no word yet on when Allan will make his promotional debut, but the fighter will enter a weight class currently ruled by UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones.
