Ian Heinisch might have originally been Brendan Allen’s scheduled opponent, but replacement and undefeated Kyle Daukaus is still getting some of the action.

Allen is 14-3 in MMA, and 13 of his 14 victories have come via stoppage. He averages just 2.24 strikes per minute, but also 2.24 takedowns per 15 minutes of octagon time.

Daukaus is 9-0 and the Philadelphian is taking on enough money to keep the odds stable. At 27-years-old, the short odds show the respect he gets from the independent MMA community, as he’s been on the lists of guys that need to get a UFC contract since his Dana White’s Contender Series appearance.
