The rising UFC featherweight contender Movsar Evloev claimed a unanimous decision win against one of the toughest opponents in the division: Arnold Allen. This victory will open new doors in Movsar Evloev’s UFC journey.

However, Dana White seemed disappointed. He thought the match was boring and is hoping for Movsar Evloev was ready to face fans’ reaction. Here’s exactly what Dana White said: “He’s on I think he’s like 18 or 19 [win streak] and that fight sucked the wind right out of the Arena tonight.

So it might bum him out, but he’s got to deal with it! Yeah that was the least fun fight anybody’s ever seen so he doesn’t have much to complain about. You know who lost that fight? The fans yeah so yeah he doesn’t have much to * about on that one”.

Perhaps Evloev needs to use his next match to flaunt his skills and portray himself as a worthy contender to fight for the belt.

Movsar Evloev on what he wants next

During the post-fight interview, Movsar Evloev revealed what he wants next.

“It’s not about finishing somebody or something else,” Evloev said, as quoted by “I’m 18-0 – that’s no joke. Even if I had no finishes, with 15-0 I beat everybody and everyone knows.

Because I’m still undefeated, there’s no way they don’t let me go for the title. (But) if I need to beat somebody else, just give it to me”.

Evloev predicts Alexander Volkanovski vs Ilia Topuria

“He’s still tough, and it’s not about Ilia – he’s still tough, too, He’s undefeated.

Of course (Topuria) has a chance for victory, but my favorite is still Alex. But for me, maybe it’s better for Ilia to win because we have a backstory and for me, it’s good to take a title shot and fight him for once".
