Curtis (31-11) stepped in on short notice to face Allen (24-5) in the middleweight headliner at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The fight went the distance, with Curtis believing he had done enough to secure the victory. However, the judges scored it in Allen's favor, leading to a split decision.

During the fight, Curtis believes he sustained a torn hamstring, adding to the disappointment of the loss. If confirmed, this injury could result in a lengthy recovery period, potentially altering Curtis's career trajectory at the age of 36.
