Arnold Allen spoke with MMAjunkie after his win over Makwan Amirkhani at UFC Fight Night 107. Some highlights are below:

On coming into the fight as an underdog: “To be fair, I haven’t proven myself. Maybe now, but I see on social media, bloody English fans saying on the UFC’s posts, ‘Who’s Arnold Allen? He’s going to get his ass kicked. Who’s this guy?’ C’mon. I’m homegrown, man. Give me some love.”

On the value of his win: “I knew this was the breakout fight. I said it before the fight. People will start knowing who I am, and maybe people will stop me and my dog on High Street – I don’t know.”
