In front of a huge audience, the UFC's return to Kansas City featured an intense and passionate collection of matches. Max Holloway defeated the brilliant Arnold Allen in the main event featherweight contenders fight by scoring a unanimous decision victory.

By landing more than 3,000 meaningful strikes in the Octagon, Holloway broke a record and solidified his chances of winning back the featherweight championship.

The title contender fight between former featherweight champion #2 Max Holloway and #4 Arnold Allen featured five rounds of masterful striking.

Although Holloway was more frugal than anticipated, his superior game plan of maintaining an advantage by making accurate shots is what truly distinguishes him as a legend. Holloway's victory made him the first UFC fighter to land more than 3,000 meaningful strikes.

"I wanted to come out here with nothing (blank slate), but Arnold Allen hits like a truck. I wanted to keep tagging him, he didn't want to go out, he wanted to go all the way, and I welcome that. Don't boo the man, it takes two to dance and he did it,” Holloway said.

In the co-main event, veteran #14 Edson Barboza stopped Billy Quarantillo in the first round with a highlight-reel-worthy knee, despite the fact that they both started off strong.

"The most important: I love to see you guys in the crowd, that's why I'm here! I trained exactly in this movement for eight weeks. Please (give me) someone ranked in front of me. Edson Barboza is still here, I'm ready!,” he said.
