UFC Austin: Calvin Kattar vs. Josh Emmett live weigh-in results.

With Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway’s trilogy title fight just weeks away, Calvin Kattar and Josh Emmett – two top-10 featherweights – will clash in the main event of UFC Austin as they jockey for position toward a future title shot.

Kattar, currently ranked No. 4, has won three of his last four. He is coming in off two straight Fight of the Night honors as well thanks to his January 2021 decision loss to Holloway and his January 2022 victory over Giga Chikadze.

Prior to these two fights, Kattar had a big 2020 that saw him knock out Jeremy Stephens and score an exciting win over Dan Ige.

Emmett, meanwhile, enters off victories in six of his last seven bouts, including four straight wins. He was most recently in action in December, defeating Ige at UFC 269. Prior to that, Emmett scored finishes of Michael Johnson and Mirsad Bektic, as well as a decision over Shane Burgos.

The co-main event will see two legends of the Octagon, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Joe Lauzon, clash for the first (and more than likely only) time after their originally scheduled bout from UFC 274 fell through.
