|Calvin Kattar||TALE OF THE TAPE||Josh Emmett|
|5 ft. 11 in.||Height||5 ft. 6 in.|
|72 in.||Reach||70 in.|
Number-four ranked featherweight Calvin Kattar takes on number-seven ranked Josh Emmett – who is currently riding a four-fight winning streak.
Emmett, a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu who boasts NAIA wrestling credentials, most recently defeated Dan Ige by decision at UFC 269 last December. He hasn’t lost since 2018.
After suffering a devastating loss at the hands of former champion Max Holloway, Calvin Kattar bounced back in a big way in his last fight – handing Giga Chikadze his first UFC loss this past January.
Kattar will be the taller and longer fighter in this matchup and is also listed as the -235 to win.

|Donald Cerrone||TALE OF THE TAPE||Joe Lauzon|
|6 ft.||Height||5 ft. 10 in.|
|73 in.||Reach||71.2 in.|
|36-16, 2 no-contests||Record||28-15|
Rescheduled from UFC 274 this past May due to an illness, Donald Cerrone and Joe Lauzon will now engage in their highly anticipated lightweight contest.
After three losses in a row, Joe Lauzon won his most recent fight against Jonathan Pearce via TKO. However, that ‘most recent’ fight took place back in 2019.
However, Lauzon is still considered one of the most dangerous grapplers in the game, boasting a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and a gym under his own name.
Unlike Lauzon, Donald Cerrone has remained active but has not won a fight since 2019. He has lost five straight and had one no-contest during his losing stretch. He most recently lost to Alex Morono via first-round TKO last May.
However, likely due to his activity, Cerrone is listed as the favorite to win. But it’s hard to put money on the “Cowboy” these days.
|Kevin Holland||TALE OF THE TAPE||Tim Means|
|6 ft. 3 in.||Height||6 ft. 2 in.|
|81 in.||Reach||75 in.|
|22-7, 1 no-contest||Record||32-12-1,1 no-contest|
Another fan-favorite fighter, Kevin Holland, returns to action at this event to take on Tim Means.
Saturday will be Holland’s second fight since moving down to the welterweight division earlier this year. His first bout at 170-pounds came against Alex Oliveira last March at UFC 272, which Holland won via second-round TKO.
Tim Means has yet to fight in 2022 but is currently riding a three-fight winning streak that last saw him defeat Nicolas Dalby via decision almost one-year ago.
Both men are tall for the welterweight division but Hollan will have a six-inch reach advantage. Holland also holds a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and a second-degree black belt in kung fu.
At -275, Holland is the biggest betting favorite on the main card.
|Joaquin Buckley||TALE OF THE TAPE||Albert Duraev|
|5 ft. 8 in.||Height||5 ft. 11 in.|
|76 in.||Reach||75 in.|
Riding a ten-fight winning streak, Albert Duraev will be making just his second UFC appearance this Saturday.
He debuted at UFC 267 last October – defeating Roman Kopylov by decision.
Joaquin Buckley has won his last two in a row – knocking out Antonio Arroyo before beating Abdul Razak Alhassan by decision this past February.
Duraev will stand three-inches taller but Buckley will have a one-inch reach advantage in the fight.
|Damir Ismagulov||TALE OF THE TAPE||Guram Kutateladze|
|5 ft. 10 in.||Height||5 ft. 11 in.|
|70 in.||Reach||72 in.|
With only one loss on his professional record, Damir Ismagulov has won 15-straight fights including four in the UFC.
He last fought Rafael Alves last May and won via unanimous decision.
Guram Kutateladze will be making just his second UFC appearance. He debuted in 2020 against Mateusz Gamrot and won via split-decision. He is on a nine-fight win streak.
|Julian Marquez||TALE OF THE TAPE||Gregory Rodrigues|
|6 ft. 2 in.||Height||6 ft. 3 in.|
|72 in.||Reach||75 in.|
Not only is Julian Marques riding a two-fight win streak, but he’s won both of those fights by submission and received post-fight bonuses for both.
Gregory Rodrigues is still relatively new to the UFC, having won his first two bouts with the promotion before losing his most recent fight against Armen Petrosyan by split-decision last February.
Rodrigues stands taller, has a longer reach, and a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu compared to Marquez’s purple.
