LFA's middleweight belt again needs a titleholder after yet another champion signed with the UFC. All four 185-pound champs in the promotion's history have gone on to the UFC: Eryk Anders, Markus Perez, Anthony Hernandez and Ian Heinisch.
Allen, a 22-year-old from Louisiana, will get his third crack at a vacant LFA belt in just a little more than a year. At LFA 14, he lost a decision to Anders for the belt. Hiley has back-to-back wins in his first two fights for the promotion. In March, he stopped Willie Whitehead with a TKO in the second round at LFA 34.
