I've been blogging about Calvin Kattar as New England's most exciting fighter to watch for a couple years now, and I think if you watched that main event tonight, you'd understand why! God damn, what a performance - and what a battle!
This Fight Island main event was just an awesome striking matchup from start to finish, and pretty damn back-and-forth for a while, but eventually - Kattar's power, strength, and cardio just appeared to outlast Ige, and he took over completely in the championship rounds. He got the unanimous decision victory in the end - and called out the champ, Alexander Volkanovski, in his post-fight interview.
I don't know if they'll give him Volk, but 145 is so full of killers right now that I can't think of a matchup I wouldn't wanna see for Kattar. Seriously.
P.S. Sorry again about the parlay. I woke up feelin dangerous. Tried somethin new. Now I feel bad. It won't happen again. No more givin out parlays. Learned my lesson.
