UFC Vegas 63: Kattar vs. Allen Fight Card, How to Watch

This Saturday, UFC featherweights Calvin Kattar and Arnold Allen will clash to determine who will take the next step in the division.

Allen is looking to remain undefeated in the UFC with a win at UFC Vegas 63. Ranked sixth in the division, Allen has achieved a winning streak of 11 wins. In his last fight, he also made a statement by defeating Dan Hooker by TKO at UFC London on Mar. 19. While Kattar could be his toughest matchup to date, Allen seems ready to keep his win streak intact.

Kattar aims to keep his spot in the division by halting Allen’s success in the UFC. He is coming into his fight Saturday looking to rebound from a loss to Josh Emmett. The fight took place at UFC Austin on June 18, ending in Emmett’s split decision. Although he lost, Kattar is still ranked fifth in the featherweight division.

Kattar and Allen hope to join the conversation as possible contenders for the UFC Featherweight Championship. The current champion Alexander Volkanovski is potentially moving up a weight class to fight the UFC Lightweight Champion, Islam Makhachev next year. If Volkanovski leaves the featherweight division, either Kattar or Allen could be one or two fights away from competing for the title.

The co-main event will feature a welterweight matchup between Tim Means and Max Griffin. Both fighters are looking to get a win after suffering defeats in their last fight. Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski will also compete on the card against Marcos Rogerio De Lima. Arlovski is on a four-fight win streak, and a win could help him fight a ranked heavyweight opponent in his next fight.
