The UFC returns to the Octagon for the first time in 2022 when the bell rings for UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs. Chikadze. Two top 10 featherweights will headline the 10-fight card when Calvin “The Boston Finisher” Kattar takes on Giga “The Ninja” Chikadze in the maint event. Both fighters will be fighting for a possible future title shot.
With a 22-5 record, Kattar is the #5 ranked UFC Featherweight and has 13 wins by knockout or submission. The Boston Finisher fights out of Methuen, Massachusetts, and this will be his first fight inside the Octagon since losing a decision to Max Holloway in January 2021. The Holloway loss snapped his 2-fight win streak, but he’ll need a win against Chikadze to stay in a top 5.
Fighting out of Tbilisi, Georgia, Chikadze is the #8 ranked UFC Featherweight, and a 3-time Performance of the Night winner. The Ninja has a 14-2 record and will be main eventing for the second time in the UFC. He’s currently on a 9-fight win streak and has recently defeated Edson Barboza, one of the UFC’s best strikers, by TKO. Chikadze will be looking to secure a spot in the top 5 with a win, as he’s won 14 of his last 15 fights with 3 of them by TKO.
