A pair of rising featherweight contenders will square off on Jan. 25.
The event is scheduled to take place at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., and is expected to stream on ESPN+.
Since moving down to 145 pounds, Emmett has won four of five fights and is coming off back-to-back knockouts over Michael Johnson and, most recently, a “Performance of the Night” over Mirsad Bektic in July. The Team Alpha Male fighter will look to make it three in a row when he takes on the streaking Allen.
Allen has not yet lost in the UFC, going a perfect 6-0. The 25-year-old Brit is coming off the biggest win of his career, a unanimous decision victory over former Strikeforce and WEC lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez at UFC 239 in July.
