Fight Night Holloway VS Kattar

 

 

The next UFC event is on January 16th at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. Max Holloway will fight Calvin Kattar and the winner would likely get a shot at Alexander Volkanovski for the featherweight title. Holloway’s last two fights were both losses to the current champion Volkanovski. Both of those fights were decided by decision and Holloway remains the number one contender despite losing his last two fights. Max “Blessed” Holloway has a professional record of (21-6) with 10 wins coming by KO, two by submission, and nine wins on decision. If the former champion wants to get his belt back he will have to defeat the number six ranked featherweight in the world, Calvin Kattar.

Clavin Kattar has a professional record of (22-4) with 11 wins by way of KO, two by submission, and nine wins by decision. “The Boston Finisher” is on a two-fight win streak after defeating Dan Ige and Jeremy Stephens. Kattar’s win over Stephens was an impressive second-round KO. His boxing is the strongest part of his game but he is by no means one-dimensional. Kattar has a very strong takedown defense and can strike in many different ways. His elbows can be just a lethal as his powerful right hand that has stopped so many fighters. Kattar will be the underdog versus Holloway but, in the fight game we all know it can take just one clean shot, and “The Boston Finisher” has many shots that could put Holloway away in his arsenal.

Holloway versus Katter will start a great run of fights as the very next week Conor McGregor will face off against Dustin Poirier. Make sure to mark January 16th and January 23rd on your calendars because they are both highly anticipated fights. The main Card for Holloway versus Kattar will be at 3 PM ET. Do not miss it!
