“Save team! I communicate to everyone that I am no longer part of the UFC. There were 3 fights in the event although they were good fights, it wasn’t even close to what I am, or what I can show, I went through a lot of problems in the last 3 years, I was out of action for a long time and I couldn’t hit a sequence of fights, and that certainly contributed to this moment,” he wrote.
“I’m sad, but I don’t see this as a goodbye, but a good-bye. And now? Now I’m going to live MMA outside the UFC, keep working hard, looking to evolve, and being who I really am. I already have new plans, and soon we will have news. Follow the plan.”
He made his debut in the UFC against Mike Rodriguez, which ended up as a no contest.
His second bout was against Georgian fighter Roman Dolidze (3-1 in the UFC), who first competed in the light heavyweight but moved to middleweight. Allan suffered a split decision victory.
But the Brazilian fighter’s last appearance turned out to be fatal for him. He suffered a unanimous decision loss against Dustin Jacoby at UFC 268.
