Calvin Kattar and Josh Emmett will each look to take another step towards earning a UFC Featherweight title shot when they square off in the main event of UFC on ESPN 37 this Saturday night. This fight is scheduled to be the headliner of a solid six-fight main card taking place in the Moody Center in Austin, Texas.

Calvin Kattar record, form & stats

Calvin Kattar (23-5-0) bounced back from a decision loss in January of 2021 to Max Holloway with a decision win in January of 2022 over Giga Chikadze. Both of those fights earned Fight of the Night awards from the UFC, and the win over Chikadze snapped Chikadze’s nine-fight winning streak and handed him his first loss in the UFC. Kattar is now 5-2 over his last seven fights, and both of his losses over that stretch came by decision against elite opponents in Holloway and Zabit Magomedsharipov.

Josh Emmett record, form & stats

Josh Emmett (17-2-0) improved to 4-0-0 over his last four fights when he defeated Dan Ige by decision at UFC 269. Emmett has climbed up to No. 7 in the UFC’s featherweight rankings thanks to his current four-fight winning streak that includes two knockout wins, one Fight of the Night bonus and one Performance of the Night award. This fight against Calvin Kattar will be a clear step up in difficulty for Emmett, who will have the opportunity to prove that he deserves a spot in the division’s top five.

Kattar vs Emmett predictions & best bets

Both Kattar and Emmett have picked up their last two wins by decision after having won by knockout in each of their previous three wins. Kattar has never been knocked out and Emmett has been knocked out only once, so this has the look of a fight that is very likely to go the distance. And that fight script doesn’t bode particularly well for Emmett.

Kattar is the smoother striker between these two fighters, and with the exception of his recent loss to Holloway, he is usually the one dictating the flow of the fight. Considering neither of these featherweights are known for their ground game, this should be a stand-up fight in which Kattar is the one racking up the combos and points and Emmett is out there looking for haymakers. Emmett could steal this one with a perfect strike, but the far more likely outcome is for Kattar to pick him apart en route to victory.
