Calvin Kattar one more fight away from challenging for the UFC Featherweight title. Next fight for Calvin Kattar after defeating Dan Ige is fighting the winner of Yair Rodriguez and Kattar’s former opponent Zabit Magomedsharipov.
Fighting either Yair or Zabit will be intriguing fights to watch.
Kattar definitely improved since his loss to Zabit, Be a challenge to Zabit in the second fight as he stopped Dan Ige takedowns, Improved on his boxing. Kattar will be the underdog in his fight with Zabit but I won’t be surprised if Kattar defeats Zabit.
Kattar vs Yair would be a hell of a fight in the fall of 2020. Back and forth action watching the best striking in the featherweight division. Impressive win over taekwondo black belt Yair Rodriguez.
Either win will place Kattar next in line to challenge the UFC Featherweight champion.
Post fight Calvin Kattar called out Alexander Volkanovski which is a smart business decision with the spotlight on him but I doubt Kattar gets Volkanovski next.
Instead to build his name more, Fighting on a UFC PPV Main Card in the fall against Yair or Zabit will the best thing for him moving forward.
Maybe with a brutal knockout he’ll get a increase in fans that will help build the future featherweight title fight in 2021.
