Arnold Allen was forced to pick up the biggest win of his career in a way he didn’t want.
Allen defeated fellow top featherweight by second-round TKO. It extended his winning streak to 12.
In the first round, Allen showed off his skills but things went downhill after it appeared that Kattar hurt himself after landing awkwardly from a flying knee attempt.
Kattar came back out in the second round, but immediately fell to the floor after Allen threw a leg kick.
Not the way anybody expected this one to go

“That’s never a TKO by injury,” Allen said. “I can’t really ask for a title shot off this.”
But Allen was winning the fight up until that point.
According to UFC Stats, he outlanded Kattar 22-14 in total strikes and connected on more attempts.
