FeatherweightUFC
October 27, 2021
Kattar will face Giga Chikadze on Jan. 15 in a previously-scheduled featherweight event, according to Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com.
ANALYSIS
Kattar's fight with Giga Chikadze has already been scheduled for next year, but now it has been confirmed that it will be the headliner of a UFC event on Jan. 15. Kattar has gone 2-1 over his last three UFC bouts and still appears worthy of "contender" status, but he'll face a tough task against a streaking kickboxer in Chikadze.

Kattar was handed a six-month mandatory suspension after suffering a broken nose in his loss against Max Holloway in January this year.

Coach details injuries
FeatherweightUFC
January 17, 2021
Kattar's head coach, Tyson Chartier, said that the 32-year-old is "doing OK" after suffering a unanimous-decision loss Saturday to Max Holloway at UFC on ABC 1 in Abu Dhabi, Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com reports. "Some staples in the head and a broken nose and bruising," Chartier said, when providing an update on Kattar's injuries.
ANALYSIS
Though he was on the wrong end of a convincing win for Holloway, Kattar at least appears to have escaped significant physical harm in the fight. He may be handed a medical suspension due to his injuries, but look for Kattar to look to return to the Octagon at some point in the late spring or summer.
Displays legendary heart in loss
FeatherweightUFC
January 16, 2021
Kattar lost to Max Holloway via unanimous decision (43-50, 43-50, 42-50) at UFC on ABC 1 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
Kattar did everything he could and then some, but he was hopelessly outclassed in a kickboxing match against one of the greatest featherweights in the history of the sport. Simply put, the gap in technical skill between the two was too much for Kattar to overcome. Kattar landed more than his fair share of power shots, but for every one he connected with, Max seemed to return three more. It was one of the most impressive displays of toughness we have seen in recent memory. There should be a federal investigation opened should Kattar not receive a $50,000 Fight of the Night bonus for his efforts (which was later confirmed). The 32-year-old Massachusetts native isn't going to be happy with the end result, but the truth of the matter is that there are no real losers in an epic classic such as this one. Kattar will be back.
Set to face Max Holloway
FeatherweightUFC
November 17, 2020
Kattar will take on Max Holloway in a featherweight matchup in the main event of a card scheduled for Fight Island on Jan. 16.
ANALYSIS
Kattar will get to square off against a former featherweight champion, though Holloway is in a bit of a rough patch at the moment, having lost three of his last four fights, including a pair of decision defeats against Alexander Volkanovski. For his part, Kattar will be looking to extend his winning streak to three, building on a second-round knockout win over Jeremy Stephens and a unanimous decision victory against Dan Ige.
