Allan Nascimento vs. Jake Hadley re-booked for May 14 UFC event


Jake Hadley & Allan Nascimento were scheduled to meet following a March cancelled fight. They are now booking for the May 14 UFC Fight Night. The UFC had yet to officially announce the location for the show.

Multiple people with knowledge of the news told MMA Fighting following a report from Eurosport.

Nascimento (18-6), a teammate of Charles Oliveira at Chute Boxe Diego Lima in Sao Paulo, Brazil, competed at Dana White‘s Contender Series and RIZIN before earning his spot in the UFC. “Puro Obso” lost his debut in the octagon to Tagir Ulanbekov by a split decision.

Hadley (8-0) is unbeaten as a professional fighter and once claimed the Cage Warriors flyweight belt. “White Kong” joined the UFC after choking out Mitch Raposo on DWCS in October 2021, the fourth rear-naked choke finish of his MMA career.

The Fight Night card is expected to feature former champion Jan Blachowicz versus Aleksandar Rakic in a five-round main event.
