Undefeated Georgian finishing ace, Roman Dolidze has his next Octagon outing set. The 7-0 division prospect is slated to meet with the returning Chute Box mainstay, John Allan in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC 255 on November 21st. A location or venue for the event is yet to be determined by the promotion.

Landing in the Octagon in spectacular fashion – Dolidze finished Khadis Ibraghimov with a first-round knockout. The July matchup on ‘Fight Island’ marked Dolidze’s first appearance under the UFC’s banner, following prior cancelled matches with Vinicius Moreira, and Gadzhimurad Antigulov.

Allan will make his first Octagon outing since his matchup with Mike Rodriguez last July. The matchup was eventually ruled a ‘No Contest’ after Allan had tested positive for a banned substance – subsequently serving a one-year suspension. Combate reporter, Raphael Marinho was first to report the news of the 205-pound tie.

From seven professional outings, Dolidze has managed seven victories and a whopping seven stoppages. The dangerous striker and heel-hook specialist has managed previous notable victories over Michał Pasternak, and Eder de Souza both under the World Warriors Fighting Championships banner.

Dana White’s Contender Series alumnus, Allan dropped a submission loss to compatriot, the aforementioned, Moreira during his appearance on the show back in August of 2018. Returning to the UFC at his second time of trying, the 27-year-old Parana native featured once under Future FC scrutiny – notching a first-round knockout win over the then-undefeated, Alexandre Silva.
