Returning with a bang from our Christmas break, two episodes in one week! On this special bonus episode, Mike McMahon joins us to chat this Saturday’s UFC on ABC: Holloway vs Kattar bout.
McMahon has covered MMA for the Eagle Tribune in Massachusetts and is a huge fan of the sport. This bout is special due to New England’s own Calvin Kattar is fighting in the main event against the No. 1 ranked and former Featherweight Champion, Max Holloway. Kattar is currently ranked No. 6 in the division.
“The Boston Finisher” is the owner of Combat Zone MMA in New Hampshire and is part of the New England Cartel based out of Massachusetts.
This fight is huge for the Methuen native and could have title fight ramifications, should he come out victorious. Alexander Volkanovski is the current featherweight champion, beating Holloway twice to both win the title and defend the belt.
Additionally, this marks a huge milestone for the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The “Fight Island” card will be aired on ABC for the first time in the promotion’s history. This is the return to network television for the first time since the UFC had its deal with FOX before switching to ESPN.
UFC on ABC: Holloway vs Kattar can be seen on Saturday, January 16 starting at 12:00pm for the undercard on ESPN+ and 3:00pm for the main card on ABC.
