A shuffling of the deck is keeping Brendan Allen on the upcoming UFC on ESPN 6 card.

The change was first reported by MMA Junkie.

Holland (16-4) has won three straight fights, most recently defeating Alessio Di Chirico by unanimous decision at UFC Greenville in June. The 26-year-old is unbeaten since dropping his debut to Thiago Santos.

Allen, 23, earned a contract on season three of Dana White
