John Allan Arte (born February 22, 1993) is a Brazilian mixed martial artist who competes in the Light Heavyweight division. He formerly competed in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

At Dana White's Contender Series Brazil 3 on August 11, 2018,[4] Allan fell short to eventual contract-winner Vinicius Moreira via second-round triangle choke submission despite a successful first round that saw Allan bloody his fellow Brazilian.[5]

Allan made his UFC debut against Mike Rodríguez on July 13, 2019, at UFC Fight Night: de Randamie vs. Ladd.[7] He originally won the fight via unanimous decision.[8] However, Allan tested positive for banned hormone and metabolic modulator tamoxifen for which he received a one-year USADA suspension, which began on began on July 13, 2019, and was fined $4,800 by the California State Athletic Commission which overruled the original decision to a no contest.[9]

Allan, as a replacement for Gerald Meerschaert, was scheduled to face Ed Herman on September 12, 2020, at UFC Fight Night: Waterson vs. Hill.[10] Allan was removed from the fight in early September as he faced travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic and was replaced by Mike Rodríguez.[11]

Allan faced Roman Dolidze at UFC on ESPN: Hermansson vs. Vettori on December 5, 2020. He lost the bout via split decision; however 19 out of 19 media members scored it a 30-27 for Dolidze.[12][13]

Allan was expected to face Aleksa Camur on November 6, 2021, at UFC 268.[14] However, Camur pulled out of the bout citing an undisclosed injury and was replaced by Dustin Jacoby.[15] Allan lost the bout via unanimous decision.[16]
