Brendan Allen (22-5 MMA, 10-2 UFC) comes into his second main event of 2023 with five straight wins, including four by rear-naked choke. That might come in handy against Paul Craig, who has shown a propensity for submission wins. In his current run, Allen has submissions of Sam Alvey, Krzysztof Jotko, Andre Muniz and, in June, Bruno Silva, to go along with a decision over Jacob Malkoun.

For the first time, Scottish finishing machine Paul Craig (17-6-1 MMA, 9-6-1 UFC) gets to headline a UFC event. After a 5-0-1 run at light heavyweight was halted by losses to Volkan Oezdemir and Johnny Walker, Craig dropped to middleweight and finished Andre Muniz in July for a $50,000 bonus.

Jake Matthews (19-6 MMA, 12-6 UFC) has alternated wins and losses his past five fights, but will go after his first winning streak since 2020 when he meets Michael Morales (15-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) at welterweight. Matthews submitted Darrius Flowers in July to get back in the win column after a decision loss to Matthew Semelsberger 11 months ago.

He got to the UFC courtesy of Dana White’s Contender Series in 2021 and has taken out Trevin Giles and Adam Fugitt in 2022 and outworked Max Griffin in July.
