Jones is considered to be the 135th best lightweight in the United States. He will need to win in an exciting way in order to impress the UFC.

Daniel James Allen Betting Preview

Allen has won all four of his bouts so far since becoming professional in early 2019. He is coming off of a unanimous decision over Luis Vargas at the Dragon House MMA in March earlier this year.

Looking at his four wins, he has two knockouts and two decisions. He has one first round finish so far in his career, so 75 percent of the time he has gone later rounds to win.

He has two battles each coming from different fighting leagues, which are the Dragon House and the Ultimate Warrior Champion. The problem is, none of these fighters that he competed against, as they do not have a winning record.

Allen will need to do his best here if wants a shot at winning. He has yet to face anyone like Jones. A win here would greatly boost his world rankings.
