Jack Hermansson vs. Brendan Allen headlines UFC’s June 3 Fight Night card

The UFC has a middleweight main event for its first card for the 2023 summer months.

Top-15 185-pounders Jack Hermansson (23-8 MMA, 10-6 UFC) and Brendan Allen (21-5 MMA, 9-2 UFC) will headline the UFC’s June 3 card. UFC broadcast partner ESPN first reported the main event. The show doesn’t have an announced venue or location, but is expected to have a broadcast on ESPN and ESPN+.

Hermansson, who will turn 35 a week after the bout, will be looking to bounce back from a second-round TKO loss to Roman Dolidze this past December, which gave him two losses in his past three fights. The Swedish fighter has alternated wins and losses since a four-fight streak in 2019.

Allen hasn’t had the same up-and-down run of late. The 27-year-old has been busy and is on a four-fight winning streak, including three by rear-naked choke. His tapouts of Krzysztof Jotko this past October and Andre Muniz a month ago garnered him extra $50,000 bonus checks. Still, Allen finds himself just behind Hermansson’s No. 10 UFC middleweight ranking at No. 12.

With the addition, the UFC’s June 3 lineup now includes:

  • Jack Hermansson vs. Brendan Allen
  • Mayra Bueno Silva vs. Miesha Tate
  • Amir Albazi vs. Kai Kara-France
  • Tim Elliott vs. Allan Nascimento
