Max Holloway To Fight Calvin Kattar In Main Event of January 16th UFC ‘Fight Night’

A featherweight main event between Max Holloway and Calvin Kattar has been booked for a January 16th UFC card, as announced on Tuesday. The fight is Holloway’s first non-championship bout since 2016.

The location of the fight is not known currently.

Holloway, the former UFC Featherweight Champion, lost his belt in late 2019 with a decision loss to Alexander Volkanovski. A rematch in July was another win for Volkanovski, giving him his first title defence.

Holloway claimed the featherweight belt in 2017 after a win over Jose Aldo. He defended it twice during his run as a champion.

Kattar has been on the rise in the featherweight division through 2020. After a May win over Jeremy Stephens, Kattar returned in July to take a decision win over Dan Ige. The fight was Kattar’s first five-round bout as a pro.
