UFC Austin live blog: Calvin Kattar vs. Josh Emmett


This is the UFC Austin live blog for Calvin Kattar vs. Josh Emmett, the featherweight main event on Saturday in Austin, Texas.

Kattar is the No. 7 featherweight in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings, is battling back into title contention after a brutal decision loss to ex-champ Max Holloway shelved him for one year. In his most recent performance, he outpointed Giga Chikadze in a tough five-round headliner at UFC Vegas 46. Overall, he is 7-3 in the octagon.

Emmett is the No. 8 fighter, enjoys a four-fight winning streak heading into the main event. The Team Alpha Male standout returned to action this past December after a bad knee injury he suffered in a win over Shane Burgos; he took on Dan Ige at UFC 269 and won a unanimous decision to stay in the hunt for a shot at gold. His overall UFC record is 8-2.
