UFC Vegas 46: Calvin Kattar vs. Giga Chikadze fight card, start time, channel guide.

Top UFC featherweights put it all on the line at UFC Vegas 46, as Giga Chikadze and Calvin Kattar square off at the UFC Apex.

Chikadze has dominated the competition in the UFC since signing with the promotion in 2019. He’s won nine straight fights, including most recently in his first UFC main event against Edson Barboza.

Kattar makes his return to the octagon after a yearlong hiatus, stemming from his lopsided defeat to Max Holloway on Fight Island. Before that, he had won back-to-back bouts against Dan Ige and Jeremy Stephens.

The winner of this fight could potentially get a title shot next. UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski was originally slated to face Holloway in a trilogy at UFC 272 before Holloway pulled out due to an injury.

But the main event isn’t the only fight on the card worth keeping an eye on. Former UFC flyweight title challengers Katlyn Chookagian and Jennifer Maia battle for a potential rematch against Valentina Shevchenko. In the men’s flyweight division, Brandon Royval and Rogerio Bontorin look to stay in the title conversation.

The card also features intriguing prospects Joanderson Brito and Viacheslav Borshchev, along with exciting brawlers such as Dakota Bush and Brian Kelleher.
