Strickland and Allen had earlier fought at UFC Fight Night: Felder vs dos Anjos. ‘Tarzan’ had won that fight after knocking out Allen in the second round. Since then there has been a rivalry between the two fighters and Allen calling out Strickland showed that it still continues.

“You say you’ll fight anyone, let’s run it back, do the full camp and let’s see if you can do it again. But we both know that’s not gonna happen, so let’s just put the gloves on again and run it back and let’s see what happens. Don’t run from me, you can’t run from me forever, I promise you. I’ll see you soon, buddy.”
