Arnold Allen is widely regarded as Europe’s brightest Featherweight prospect and has been tipped by many experts including Dan Hardy as destined to claim the UFC Featherweight crown in the future.
Hailing from Trimley St Martin near Felixstowe in Suffolk, Arnold started his MMA career at Dynamo Muay Thai and BKK Fighters becoming one of Europe’s most exciting fighters showcasing his talent in many bouts on the Cage Warriors promotion. After picking up the M4TC Lightweight title Arnold received a short notice call up to UFC Berlin where he announced his arrival in style to the world’s elite promotion by submitting another top prospect Alan Omer in the 3rd round with a Performance Bonus winning ‘ninja choke’ submission.
Upon becoming a full time UFC athlete Arnold made the move to the world famous Tristar gym in Montreal to commence training under the tutelage of Firas Zahabi and share the mats with the likes of Georges St Pierre, Rory McDonald and Mirsad Bektic where he has continued to get better and better on his journey to the very top.
Arnold is currently the fifth youngest fighter on the UFC roster, has amassed a perfect 6-0 UFC record with 2 Fight Night Performance Bonuses and at only 25 years of age is well on his way to becoming one of the division’s very best fighters.
Arnold’s short term goals are to break into the UFC Top 15 Featherweight rankings and secure a bout on the main card at a big UFC event in Las Vegas.
