June 15, 2020
Ige will face Calvin Kattar (undisclosed) in a featherweight matchup to headline UFC Fight Night on July 15 in Abu Dhabi, Brett Okamoto of ESPN reports.
Ige currently carries a six-fight winning streak after securing the biggest victory of his career when he defeated Edson Barboza via split decision at UFC Fight Night in Jacksonville in May. Kattar is coming off a win over Jeremy Stephens via KO (elbows) at UFC 249 in May. Although Kattar received a medical suspension for an undisclosed issue following the fight, he'll apparently be healthy enough to face Ige in July. Kattar carries advantages in both height and reach.

Earns biggest win of career
May 16, 2020
Ige defeated Edson Barboza via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Jacksonville.
It's a controversial decision and one in which Ige appeared to get a break from the judges. The surging Hawaiian definitely did his fair share of damage. He displayed very quick hands and had little issue getting inside and landing combinations against the much bigger Barboza. Defensively, Ige struggled. Barboza landed plenty of his trademark leg kicks and appeared to score with the most vicious strikes of the fight. Credit Ige's chin for holding up. Barboza is a big name and this is by far the biggest victory of the 28-year-old's career. Ige has now racked up six wins in a row. He dropped his UFC debut to Julio Arce back in January 2018 and hasn't tasted defeat since.
Winning streak on line vs. Barboza
April 27, 2020
Ige (13-2-0) is scheduled to face Edson Barboza (20-8-0) in a featherweight fight May 16 at the UFC Fight Night event in Jacksonville, Raphael Marinho of Combate.com reports.
Ige will be taking a five-fight winning streak as he returns to the Octagon for the third of at least three consecutive UFC events set to take place in Jacksonville. The 28-year-old will take on a newcomer to the featherweight class in Barboza, who dropped down from the lightweight division after losing four of his previous five bouts.
Win streak hits five
February 8, 2020
Ige defeated Mirsad Bektic via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC 247 on Saturday in Houston.
The winner of five fights in a row over the course of the past 19 months, Ige is starting to make waves at 145 pounds. His latest triumph did not come easily. Ige started very quickly. He blitzed an unsuspecting Bektic with countless combinations in Round 1. Ige looked calm and composed before things went south in Round 2. He allowed Bektic to get him to the mat and he barely managed to survive a very deep choke. Ige got the better in Round 3 due to his striking once again, but not by much. Ige looked like nothing more than roster depth when he first entered the company in January 2018, but he's knocking on the door of the top-15 in a deep 145-pound vision in the early days of 2020.
Fighting in February
November 5, 2019
Ige will face Mirsad Bektic on Feb. 8 in a location that has yet to be determined, MMAJunkie.com reports.
Ige has won four straight bouts after dropping his UFC debut, most recently beating Kevin Aguilar by unanimous decision in June. His opponent, Bektic, has lost two of his last four fights.
Wins fight with strong third round
June 22, 2019
Ige defeated Kevin Aguilar via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-27) at UFC Fight Night 154 in Greenville, South Carolina on Saturday.
This fight was a back-and-forth affair on both the feet and the ground for the better part of two rounds before a beautiful overhand right by Ige changed everything. From there, "Dynamite" stayed patient and picked his shots, hammering his opponent with big punches and knees. It is only due to the toughness of Aguilar that Ige won't add a stoppage to his record. Ige had a tough UFC debut against a slick boxer and grappler in Julio Arce, but that remains his only blemish in the promotion, as he improves to 3-1 in the UFC with the victory. His overall MMA record stands at 12-2.
