Arnold Allen extended his UFC winning streak to 10 fights tonight at UFC Fight Night 213, though the manner of his win this time around was unfortunate due to his opponent Calvin Kattar suffering an accidental knee injury that soon left him unable to continue.
The featherweight main event is underway in Las Vegas.

Heavy left hand for Allen and then another. He scores again with that same straight punch.
Kattar jumps into a knee strike, misses and then his knee buckles under him as he lands. That clearly hurt, but the fight goes on and Allen is able to get him down and work for a possible choke, but he’s able to survive until the end of the round.
Kattar gingerly gets to his feet from the stool and tests his weight on that compromised leg. Doctor quickly checks on him before the start of the round but he insists his knee is ok to continue.
So the second round starts and Allen lands a calf kick. Kattar tries to step backwards, but he can’t put any weight on his back foot due to that injured knee and he falls to the mat, and that’s going to be it. Allen wins by TKO just 8 seconds into the second round due to his opponent’s injury.
