Brendan Allen Wants to Fight Eryk Anders Next ‘I Have a Little Chip on My Shoulder’

At press time Anders isn’t scheduled for a fight and it will be some time before his foot is healed enough to get back to training but someone did have his eye on him. Brendan Allen called out Anders after he defeated Sam Alvey at UFC Fight Night 200 on February 5, 2022.

“I feel like me and Eryk Anders have a little unfinished business from back in the day,” Allen told MMA Junkie. “I have a little chip on my shoulder with that because we were young, he beat me by decision but I almost finished him with like 10 seconds left, five seconds left or whatever the hell it was. But that was a long time ago and I’m a totally different person now.”

Allen does have a backup in mind in case Anders doesn’t pan out.

“So that name was one for me. Malkoun was another one for me. Jacob Malkoun was another one,” he told the outlet. “I felt like he’s just kind of boring man. He tries to do a little ground-and-pound, but it’s not good. He hugs guys. He hugs guys for decisions and he got knocked out by my boy Phil (Hawes). So I’m trying to give him a little release.”
