Calvin Kattar v Josh Emmett UFC Fight Night Betting Odds, Tips & Predictions

Calvin Kattar and Josh Emmett will both be looking to make a statement in the featherweight division when they clash this weekend.

Alexander Volkanovski is the current UFC featherweight champion, and he takes on Max Holloway for the third time at UFC 276 on July 2.

Kattar, who lost to Holloway back in 2021, will be looking to prove he can still mix it with the big boys. After his loss to Holloway, Kattar took a year off from fighting. He returned in January 2022 and marked his return with a points decision win over Giga Chikadze.

Kattar has a professional record of 28 matches with 23 wins. Eleven of those victories have come by way of knockout, two by submission and 10 by decision. Kattar has yet to fight for a world title, and he is well aware that losing to Emmett could see his chances vanish forever.

Emmett is also chasing a world title opportunity. He has won 17 of his 19 fights since turning professional. Nine of those wins have gone the distance, with six by knockout and two by submission.

He has lost just two fights in his professional career. His last defeat was back in February 2018 when he was knockout by Jeremy Stephens.

Since then, he has won four fights in succession with wins over Michael Johnson, Mirsad Bektic, Shane Burgos and Dan Ige.

The featherweight division is very competitive with the likes of Brian Ortega, Chan Sung Jung, Arnold Allen, Movsar Evloev and Yair Rodriguez all fighting for a title shot. Kattar and Emmett need to put on a show to prove they belong.

I am backing Kattar to get his arm raised with his 12th knockout victory in the third round. Emmett will push him hard, but Kattar’s hand speed and power will be too much.
