Brendan Allen and Ian Heinisch have set a date to throw down – again.

The middleweight duo were scheduled to meet on June 27, only to have Heinisch (14-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) drop out of the fight late. But now they’re ready to tangle again as Heinisch and Allen (15-3 MMA, 3-0 UFC) will meet Nov. 7.

MMA Junkie confirmed with multiple sources a Thursday report by MMA DNA.

Heinisch made a big impression last time out, at UFC 250, with a first-round knockout of Gerald Meerschaert. That snapped a two-fight losing streak and was his first UFC victory by finish.
