UFC Fight Island 7: Max Holloway vs. Calvin Kattar official weigh-in results.
We’re a day away from the UFC‘s return from its holiday break and the start of its 2021 events calendar, and everything begins with the first of three cards on Fight Island, specifically in the new Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. UFC Fight Island 7 will feature former featherweight champion Max Holloway facing Calvin Kattar in the main event.
But before we get to that, all the fighters competing at UFC Fight Island 7 must get through the official weigh-ins.
This will be Holloway’s first fight since his controversial decision loss to Alexander Volkanovski in their UFC 251 featherweight title rematch. Volkanovski defeated Holloway at UFC 245 to claim the title, ending Holloway’s two-and-a-half-year run as champion (stretching to three years if you count Holloway’s six-month run as interim champion).
Holloway’s initial loss to Volkanovski at UFC 245 also marked the end of a long win streak at 145 pounds that Holloway had since the start of 2014.
Kattar, meanwhile, enters this fight off a major 2020 that saw him brutally finish Jeremy Stephens and defeat Dan Ige in an entertaining bout.
UFC Fight Island 7 will have its main card air on ABC, the first-ever broadcast of the UFC on the network and the UFC’s return to U.S. network television since the end of the promotion’s FOX deal in 2018.
