Chris Curtis racked up his second straight UFC win by knocking out Brendan Allen at UFC Fight Night: Font vs. Aldo (aka UFC Vegas 44 and UFC on ESPN 31) in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Curtis recently defeated Phil Hawes in his promotional debut on the preliminary card for UFC 268 in New York City last month. He won via KO in the very first round inside Madison Square Garden.
During a post-fight conversation at UFC Apex, ‘The Action Man’ stressed that he should have made his UFC debut much earlier, rather than waiting till now. He added that he’s changed his tax bracket ‘twice in 5 weeks’ since joining the world’s biggest MMA promotion.
“Oh, I feel absolutely wonderful because once again I’m the biggest underdog on the card. Doubt me now. I am the most badass fluky person you’ve ever seen apparently. People are still gonna say ‘you suck’ but I don’t care. I should have been here (UFC) years ago. I’ve paid my dues… He (Allen) tried to submit me, like wasn’t going to get it. I can grapple. I’m actually a way better grappler than what I give myself cerdit for. I’ve got signed at 34 years old. I should have signed a few years ago. I’m in great health and I can keep going. In the last five weeks, I’ve changed my tax bracket twice. So, let’s just keep it going,” said Curtis.
