Brendan Allen made a big statement during main event at UFC Vegas 70 after third round win over Andre Muniz. Originally scheduled as the co-main event, the middleweights got the bump to the top of the card after Nikita Krylov suffered food poisoning that scrapped his matchup against Ryan Spann.
With a chance to shine under an even brighter spotlight, Allen made the most of his opportunity after displaying strong striking before eventually taking Muniz to the ground and wrapping up a rear-naked choke to finish the noted Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist.
The Eminem Curse is back as Andre Muniz walked out to Eminem’s Oscar and Grammy-winning song “Lose Yourself” and lost the fight. As you might know, there is a theory in UFC that MMA fighters who walk out to Eminem’s music lose more frequently. The theory bears similarities to other culture and sport curse crossovers including Drake with basketball and American football games across the pond.
