UFC is back with a bang as Giga Chikadze looks all set to take on Calvin Kattar for their bout in the featherweight division. The Georgian is currently placed on 8th position in the UFC Featherweight rankings and he will surely look to put up a show this week, one that should not be erased from the minds of UFC fans if he wants to reach newer heights.
The fight against Kattar should not be much of a big deal for Chikadze as he has been taking on some heavy-hitters recently and defeating them as well, namely Cub Swanson and Edson Barboza. The 33-year old American stands at number 5 in the UFC Featherweight rankings as of April 26th, 2021. He makes a return to the ring after a humiliating defeat at the hands of Max Halloway last year which is why he will focus on putting his defending abilities to the test this week against a fighter renowned for his striking abilities.
