UFC Fighter Calvin Kattar (21-4)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Calvin Kattar is one of the best fighters in the featherweight division. He is ranked No. 6 in featherweight rankings but he is still very underrated, which is dangerous ,for the division.

Kattar has five very impressive wins in his seven UFC fights. He is the only man to finish Shane Burgos and the only person to TKO Chris Fishgold. If his main event fight with No. 2 ranked, Zabit Magomedsharipov would have actually been five rounds, he would have snapped his seven-year unbeaten streak.

Kattar most recently returned to action against UFC veteran Jeremy Stephens at UFC 249, the first fight card back after the world went on lockdown. He brutally finished him in the second round via TKO, with a Boston elbow from hell, and then it followed up with punches.

It is only a matter of time before Kattar is fighting for the title if he keeps winning in the absolutely stacked featherweight division.

Kattar is doing a quick turnaround and fighting Dan Ige in the main event of the July 15, ‘Fight Island’ card.

When asked what we should expect from his upcoming fight, he said, “madness.”
