Jeff Passan Roasts Chicago News Affiliate for Misrepresenting Lockout Reports
These are the results of the UFC Vegas 46 weigh-in: Calvin Kattar vs. Giga Chikadze.
After what seemed like months, the UFC will return on Saturday, January 15 after a break of almost a month. UFC Vegas 46 ends on Saturday, January 15, 2021, beginning with the preliminary card at 5 pm ET on ESPN+. The main card will follow at 7 pm ET on ESPN/ESPN+. Although a handful of matchups have been rescheduled/canceled due to COVID, there are 10 fights left to kick off the new year.
On the main card, rising title contender Giga Chikadze takes on the ever tough Calvin Kattar. Each fighter is at a different point in their career, with Chikadze 7-0 in the UFC and Kattar coming off a brutal loss to Max Holloway.
Fortunately for Kattar, a win against Chikadze puts him back on track for a title shot. Meanwhile, Chikadze looks to continue his winning streak to strengthen his case for a future title shot. Both fighters rarely fight, so expect a standing war in this intriguing main event.
The co-main event will be between Jake Collier and Chase Sherman in the heavyweight division. Some fans have been quick to ridicule the matchup being so high on the card, but both fighters have power and need a win. Don’t underestimate what these fighters can do when they’re at their best.
Additionally, other standout matchups include Brian Kelleher vs. Kevin Croom, Jamie Pickett vs. Joseph Holmes, and Brandon Royval vs. Rogerio Bontorin. UFC Vegas 46 may not be stacked, but the potential for an exciting night of fights is there. Before each fight is official, the fighters must be successfully weighed in.
