A featherweight contest between Josh Emmett and Arnold Allen is on the agenda next.
The news was officially confirmed by the promotion on Wednesday as it will take place in the UFC’s debut show in Raleigh on January 25.
Six fight win streak! ????????????????????????????

Emmett is on a two-fight winning streak. He bounced back from his knockout loss to Jeremy Stephens last year with a come-from-behind knockout of Michael Johnson earlier this year.
The American followed it up with a dominant first-round TKO victory over Mirsad Bektic in the summer.
Allen, meanwhile, remains undefeated in the UFC. His last outing was a unanimous decision victory over former Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez at UFC 239. As a result, the Briton went 6-0 with the promotion. He will face arguably his toughest opponent yet in Emmett next.
UFC Raleigh looks to be a stacked Fight Night event headlined by a heavyweight bout between Junior dos Santos and Curtis Blaydes.
In the co-main event, Frankie Edgar makes his bantamweight debut when he meets young prospect Cory Sandhagen. Meanwhile, a huge welterweight class is also in the works between Rafael dos Anjos and Michael Chiesa.
What do you think of Emmett vs. Allen? Who wins? And what do you think of the stacked UFC Raleigh card?
