Max Holloway is back. After consecutive loses to UFC men’s featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski, the former champ defeated Calvin Kattar at UFC Fight Night Saturday in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, to get closer to another title opportunity.
Holloway dominated from the start, and had Kattar in trouble before the round ended. While Kattar was able to land his right hand in the third, Holloway’s left jab, feints and body shots were too much for Kattar to overcome. Round 4 was all Holloway, punishing Kattar with right elbows, uppercuts and brutal body punches. And while Kattar survived to hear the final bell, Holloway got the nod from all three judges 50-43, 50-43 and 50-42.
The fight was the main event of the first UFC card to ever air on ABC and delivered as promised, and both fighters earned the respect of their peers on social media.
