UFC On ABC 1 Betting: Max Holloway vs. Calvin Kattar Betting Information
Max Holloway has already a fixed legacy for having one of the longest tenures by a UFC champion by holding the featherweight championship for 925 days. He got beat by Alexander Volkanovksi just this December 2019 and that ended his reign with the judges ruling a unanimous decision. The more interesting fight happened during the rematch in UFC 251 just this July 2020. That was a controversial split decision win that could have swayed to the side of Holloway. Since this is his second defeat, Holloway has to earn the next title fight and he has to show the entire world that he deserves it by dominating Calvin Kattar.
Calvin Kattar continues to rise in the UFC featherweight rankings and he is now the 6th best in the division. That happened by defeating Jeremy Stephens and Dan Ige for his last two matches. Kattar has been in the organization since July 2017 and this is his prime chance to earn a title shot. “The Boston Finisher” is known to knock out his opponents as half of his wins are earned through it. Even if he doesn’t do so, he is favored nine out of twelve times by the judges making his chances to win a decision by a good 75%. Kattar should throw everything to Max Holloway in this fight including the kitchen sink to win.
