In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, Brendan Allen shared his thoughts on fighting Dricus Du Plessis.

“I think he was given that – I don’t think he took it from the champion,” Allen said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “In my eyes, you need to take the belt from the champion. I think a prime example is Sean vs.

Izzy (Adesanya).He went out there, he gave him the fight. It was a five-round fight and he gave it to him the whole time. Did he finish him? No, but he still took it. There was no debating the fact that he beat Izzy. I don’t think you can say the same for Sean and ‘*.'

“If I get my opportunity, which obviously someone is going to have it before me, I think it’s an easy night in the office, I don’t mean easy as in it’s a walk in the park.

Every fight is a fight – it’s tough. Anything can happen. But as far as stylistically on the matchup, he has what everyone else has: a puncher’s chance. He beats me nowhere else”.
