UFC is returning to action this Sunday with UFC Fight Night 213, also referred to as UFC Vegas 63, which will take place at the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas, featuring a Featherweight main event between Calvin Kattar and Arnold Allen.
Currently ranked 5th in the division, Kattar has tasted victory only once in his last three outings in the Octagon and will be desperate to return to winning ways this weekend. In his last fight, ‘The Boston Finisher’ went down against Josh Emmett via split decision at UFC Austin back in June.
Allen, on the other hand, has a perfect win record in the UFC. A former M4TC Lightweight Champion, Allen has won all nine of his UFC fights, with his most recent triumph marked against Dan Hooker via 1st round TKO at UFC London in March this year.
Heading into the fight, Calvin Kattar (1.83) is the favorite to win the match while Arnold Allen (1.95) serves as the underdog.
