It is being reported that Kevin Aguilar, the LFA Featherweight champion, will step in for an injured Arnold Allen to face Rick Glenn at the TUF 28 Finale. Currently on a 7-fight winning streak, Aguilar’s most recent win was a split decision victory on this past season’s Dana White’s Contender Series.
