Watch: Live on ESPN+

Calvin Kattar vs. Giga Chikadze Prediction

Calvin Kattar looks to solidify his place at the top of the featherweight division after suffering a one-sided defeat at the hands of Max Holloway. This will be Kattar's first fight back since last January, and he will look to close the distance to throw his hands and avoid the kicks of Chikadze.

Chikadze is a knockout artist and uses his tremendous kicking speed to devastate his opponents. His last win was a TKO victory over Edson Barboza that won a bonus for performance of the night.

Best Bet: Chikadze by Knockout (-240)

Katlyn Chookagian vs. Jennifer Maia Prediction

Katlyn Chookagian is primarily a striker and stays busy on the feet. She landed 127 strikes in her last fight, in which she won by decision against Viviane Araujo. Chookagian has only lost four times in her MMA career, with one coming against UFC Champion Valentina Schevchenko.

Jennifer Maia has struggled to find her form in the UFC and has only won four of her last seven fights since 2018. She has a solid top game when she can get her opponent to the ground but struggles to get there.

Best Bet: Katlyn Chookagian by Decision (-175)

Brandon Royval vs. Rogerio Bontorin Prediction

Brandon Royval has plenty of experience mixing it up in the surging flyweight division with his last three fights against current champion Brandon Moreno, Alexandre Pantoja, and Kai Kara France. While he lost two of those three, they were exciting and competitive fights where Royval showed he can hang with the most elite flyweights.

Rogerio Bontorin has a very impressive record of his own at 17-3 with 11 submissions. He is a big flyweight who throws big and powerful strikes.

Bontorin could have issues with the volume and pace of Royval. He tends to load up on single strikes and does not string together combinations. Expect this fight to end up where both fighters feel the most comfortable - on the mat, looking for submissions.

Best Bet: Brandon Royval by Submission (-165)
