In the first UFC main event of 2022, Calvin Kattar and Giga Chikadze reminded fans what they were missing in a five-round slugfest that put up an early contender for “Fight of the Year” at UFC Vegas 46.

One year removed from a brutal loss to ex-champ Max Holloway, Kattar dominated Chikadze from bell to bell, walking through brutal punches and kicks to beat the decorated kickboxer at his own game. Chikadze proved himself a tough customer at featherweight, but Kattar showed he is still a viable contender at 145 pounds.

Here’s what fighters had to say about the UFC Vegas 46 main card.
