UFC Fight Night Odds for the Main Event

Max Holloway vs Calvin Kattar

Max "Blessed" Holloway enters as the No. 1-ranked contender in the featherweight division and will look to earn another shot at the title after a split-decision loss to current champ Alexander Volkanovski. That loss was Holloway's second in a row against Volkanovski and his third defeat in his last four fights. 

However, prior to that span, Holloway had reeled off 13 straight wins and successfully defended the featherweight title on three occasions. Blessed is a terrific kickboxer with a tough chin, high-volume output, and phenomenal cardio. 

Calvin Kattar has won back-to-back fights: an impressive elbow knockout of Jeremy Stephens last May, and a decision victory against Dan Ige in June. He's now 6-2 since entering the UFC in 2017, with both of those losses coming by decision.

Despite a background as an outstanding high school wrestler, Kattar prefers to keep things standing up with his terrific boxing. "The Boston Finisher" has lived up to his nickname, with four of his last five wins coming via KO/TKO.
