After a few weeks off, MMA is well and truly back, and the UFC is kicking off the 2022 schedule with a banger of a fight in the featherweight division.

Calvin Kattar and Giga Chikadze could be as little as two wins away from a shot at the 145-pound title, and on this week’s show, we take a look at the stakes as the two strikers get set to go head to head in Saturday night’s main event in Las Vegas.

We also take a look at some of the big world title matchups already locked in for the early part of the year as we discuss the dynamics of each bout, and ponder the next step for featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski after his trilogy bout with Max Holloway was scrapped due to the former champion’s injury.

With Francis Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane, Brandon Moreno vs. Deiveson Figueiredo 3, Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling 2 and Israel Adesanya vs. Robert Whittaker 2 all on the schedule for the early part of this year, things are already shaping up for a spectacular start to the year, and we can’t wait to talk you all through it!

Enjoy this week’s show, and don’t forget to rate, review and subscribe!
