UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs Kattar – start time and how to watch live in Australia
Former UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway is looking to remind the world of his talents against fellow American Calvin Kattar.
Featherweight star Max Holloway hopes to use this fight against Calvin Kattar as the springboard for a blockbuster rematch against Conor McGregor. Holloway lost to McGregor eight years ago and would love another crack.
"People consider him one of the best in the sport today," Holloway said. "And I can't wait. As a competitor, I would love to. That's one of the fights that intrigues me. But first things first – we got Kattar and then we figure it out after this."
