Allen is facing a six-month medical suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission pending a doctor's clearance of left elbow and shoulder injuries, Alexander K. Lee of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Allen picked up a relatively dominant victory Tuesday to officially earn a UFC contract, but he didn't emerge completely unscathed from the process. He'll need to have X-rays done his his left arm, and if they come back positive, he could be forced to sit until January, pending clearance from an orthopedic doctor.

Allen defeated Aaron Jeffery via submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:23 of Round 1 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contenders Series. He was one of four fighters awarded a UFC contract after the event.
ANALYSIS
Allen closed as a betting favorite of greater than (-800) in some books, and he certainly looked the part with a dominant effort. He came out aggressive, looking to bait his opponent with his hands down. The two ended up in several grappling exchanges, and Allen was able to take Jeffery's back on two separate occasions. It was the second one -- which was opened up with a strong knee up the middle -- that ended up being Jeffery's undoing. Allen now enters the UFC on a four-fight winning streak, with 11 of his 12 professional victories coming by way of stoppage. The 23-year-old trains at Roufusport in Milwaukee, WI, home to the likes of Anthony Pettis and Tyron Woodley. He had previously been competing under the banner of Legacy Fighting Alliance.
