Additionally, his submission average of 1.7 per 15 minutes is nothing but a proof of his superiority on the ground. The turnout of Allen against Craig, demonstrated his skill, and adroitness in dictating the tempo as well as the course of a fight.

Brendan Allen vs. Chris Curtis Summary

This bout is a fight of pure strength vs. tact between two fighters. Allen looks to go for the takedown here and tries to make it a grappling fight. But, at the same time, Curtis is walking forward, looking to keep it standing. One of the key things that risk Curtis is the skills of Allen of grappling and submitting that become very tough to him, especially if he gets close enough to the mat to finish the fight there. Unlike the exchanges from close range, where he can leverage his range and speed, close-quarter fighting is where the strengths of Curtis come into play. This is where the striker and defender will likely be at an even match.

Regarding MMA betting prediction of this fight, it might be a bit difficult to come to a conclusion that it ends up being in Chris Curtis’ favor. Curtis’ strength in managing distance paired with menacing takedown tempo may give him the avenue to control the fight in his territory where he excels the best. Nonetheless, he’s seen his fair share of adversity and if he is able to execute his plan of action well, then he can enlist enough support to bring home a victory. Allen has to remain stable for the first phase and gain some openings against the opponent’s grappling. As for Curtis the plan needs to be directed at the scoring of takedowns that should include keeping the opponent at bay and never taking the fight to the ground, at any cost.
