In addition to managing Kattar, Chartier said that he repeatedly requested the Allen fight from the UFC before to a recent bout that both parties had indicated an interest in. In late 2021, the two were headed toward each other, but a battle never happened.

In an interview he stated, “The ‘Zombie’ fight is fun, They’re both coming off losses. He’s already been resting a little bit. We probably don’t need as long of a rest, so I think the timeline matches up. Arnold Allen is not even worth trying to book. We’ve been offered him before, we accepted, it was a frustrating fight to try to book. It seems like he’s always either injured or wants to go on vacation or a concert with his girlfriend, or I don’t know.” Here is the said interview:

He further stated, “I think the ‘Zombie’ fight makes a lot of sense. I think it’s a fun fight, he’s a banger, he’ll probably try and wrestle us a little bit. Calvin has shown that he has good takedown defence, so then that means it turns into a nice Calvin Kattar fight.” Chartier additionally sees Chan Sung Jung, a previous championship contender, with Allen presently out with a hand injury this could possibly mean that we might see the two square up against each other in the near future.
