Calvin Kattar vs Dan Ige Preview
Kattar opens this as the strong $1.36 favourite, with Ige currently listed as the $3.20 outsider.
Kattar’s career has been very solid to date, entering this bout with a 21-4 all-time record.
He is 5-2 since joining the UFC, including impressive recent knockouts over Ricardo Lamas and Jeremy Stephens.
Known primarily for his striking ability, 11 of his wins have come by knockout and a further 8 have been by decision.
Ige has also had an impressive career, currently sporting a 14-2 overall record.
He has won each of his last 6 UFC fights, including 2020 wins over Mirsad Bektic and Edson Barboza.
More known for his solid ground game, he has 5 submissions and 3 knockouts to his name thus far.
Overall, I’d have to give a pretty strong edge to Kattar, likely by either points or KO.
His striking game is too advanced for Ige and his ability to avoid takedowns should really come up trumps.
His height and reach advantage should also play a part here, combining nicely with his Muay Thai to get the job done.
