Will it be Repeat or Revenge at UFC Vegas 90?

Published on 6 April 2024 at 20:00

The UFC APEX is back once again, hosting another UFC Fight Night before the big milestone PPV, UFC 300, coming up in the following week. The bout features an unexpected rematch between #6 Middleweight contender, Brendan Allen, and #14 contender, Chris Curtis. Marvin Vettori was expected to face Allen but had to pull out of the fight due to injury as The Action Man steps in to save the headliner. Here is everything you need to know about the Main Event.

Brendan Allen has been on an incredible run in the last couple of years, earning a six-fight winning streak with five of those bouts ending by submission. 

All In last fought at UFC Vegas 82 where he picked up a third-round submission win against Paul Craig, slowly boosting him up further in the Middleweight rankings. 

The Beaufort-born fighter is a real submission threat in the 185-pound division, submitting 14 of the 23 opponents he has conquered in his MMA career. Allen is also placed second for most submission wins in UFC Middleweight history with a total of six.

A win for Allen will not only help maintain his #6 ranking but could line him up for a big contender in his next fight or possibly be involved in a title eliminator if he can defeat and stop the opponent that knocked him out back in December 2021.


Chris Curtis has only had eight fights in the UFC which include five wins, two losses and one ending in a no contest as he has been on a strange run in his last five fights.

Action-Man last fought at UFC 297 where he defeated Marc-Andre Barriault in enemy territory by split decision, keeping himself a spot in the Middleweight rankings.

The Ohio fighter has been victorious 31 times in his MMA career and 17 of those wins have ended by KO/TKO as he is deemed as a knockout artist. Curtis has earned three knockout wins in the UFC which came against; Phil Hawes, Brendan Allen and Joaquin Buckley.

A triumph at the UFC APEX could be the biggest win of Curtis' career as he will boost up eight spots in the rankings and get ever so closer to possibly having a shot at UFC Gold.

Other Fights you should look out for

Norma Dumont vs Germaine de Randamie - Dumont is currently the #11 Women's Bantamweight contender and has been on a fine run in the UFC, winning her last three fights by unanimous decision. The Immortal has only lost twice in her MMA career with a knockout loss to Megan Anderson and a split decision loss to Macy Chiasson. The Brazilian will look to carry on her winning streak and keep her contender's spot in the 135-pound division.

De Randamie last fought in October 2020 where she defeated former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion, Julianna Pena, by third-round submission. The former UFC Women's Featherweight Champion has only lost twice in the top MMA promotion which came against Amanda Nunes twice. The Iron Lady has the opportunity to enter the Bantamweight rankings in her return.


Court McGee vs Alex Morono - McGee has been fighting in the UFC since June 2010 when he won The Ultimate Fighter Season 11 Finale. The Crusher last fought at UFC Charlotte when he suffered a first-round knockout loss to Matt Brown. McGee looks to redeem himself at UFC Vegas 90 after putting himself on a two-fight knockout losing streak as he could be victorious against another UFC veteran.

Morono will fight with the UFC for the 20th time as he looks to get back to winning ways after his unanimous decision loss to Joaquin Buckley at UFC Vegas 90. The Great White was last successful at UFC Charlotte when he defeated Tim Means by second-round submission. Morono will aim to get back in the win column and find redemption, just like Court McGee.


Trevor Peek vs Charlie Campbell - Peek last fought at UFC 294 when he redeemed his first MMA loss with a win against Mohammad Yahya by unanimous decision. The Tennessee-born fighter has never been stopped in his career and has been a real knockout artist with eight KO/TKO wins out of nine MMA career triumphs. Peek has the opportunity to start a winning streak in the UFC as he faces another knockout artist in a Lightweight bout.

Campbell made his UFC debut last year when he defeated Alex Reyes by first-round TKO at Noche UFC. The Cannibal has earned six knockout victories out of eight MMA career wins as he is proving to be a real threat and prospect in the promotion. Campbell currently stands on a two-fight knockout winning streak as he will look to be succeed once again inside the UFC APEX.
