On Saturday, June 18 Calvin Kattar will meet with Josh Emmett of UFC Fight Nights in a 5-round featherweight bout at the Moody Center in Houston, United States.
Kattar vs. Emmett the fight night will begin on Saturday, June 18 at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT. and The fight will be held at the Moody Center in Houston, Texas, USA.
Calvin Kattar (23-5) is showing a great performance against Giga Chikadze, winning five rounds of decision and earning a Fight of the Night bonus in the process. It was a spectacular display after losing to Max Holloway in a brutal major event in January 2021.
This will be Kattar’s fourth consecutive headlining spot, starting the race for the main event in 2020 with a decision to win against Dan Ige.
Josh Emmett (17-2) could return from a long injury cut at UFC 269 to win a three-round decision against Dan Ige. Since returning to Featherweight in October 2017, Emmett’s indomitable strength has led to 11 knockouts as well as knockouts by Ricardo Lamas, Michael Johnson and Mirsad Bectic.
He fought through a torn ACL to win a thrilling Fight of the Night against Shane Burgos in June 2020, but the ACL injury and other setbacks held him back for 18 months.
In the current UFC rankings, Kattar is at No. 4 and Emmett at No. 7, and there is no doubt that the winning title is too mixed for debate.
