Allen revealed to James Lynch of Sportskeeda on the Hall of Fame red carpet that he signed his new fight and he broke the news to the MMA reporter. According to Allen, he is set to fight Krzysztof Jotko on October 1 on a Fight Night event at a location TBD.
“Should I break it? I just signed the contract, we just signed the contract today. So, Jotko, October 1st,” Allen said.
