“The Boston Finisher” will return to action in April.
Calvin Kattar is slated to take on Renato Moicano in a featherweight clash at the UFC 223 event in Brooklyn, NY, on April 7, the promotion announced following a report by Newsday. The pay-per-view card will take place at the Barclays Center.
Moicano (11-1-1) suffered his first loss as a professional fighter in his last fight, tapping against Brian Ortega in July. Prior to this defeat, the Brazilian talent was 3-0 in the UFC with wins over Tom Niinimaki, Zubaira Tukhugov and Jeremy Stephens.
