UFC 214’s Calvin Kattar on accepting short notice fight and life as fighter/promoter

The opening matchup of tomorrow’s UFC 214 prelims on FXX will be a featherweight bout as Calvin Kattar steps up on short notice to make his UFC debut against Andre Fili on the fight card coming from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

Kattar (16-2) accepted this fight on two weeks notice and this will be his first fight in 10 months as he’s coming off a decision victory at CES MMA 38 against Chris Foster. He enters this fight on an eight fight winning streak and his last six wins have come by decision.

During this week’s episode of “The MMA Report Podcast,” Kattar was a guest on the podcast to preview his fight tomorrow at UFC 214 against Fili and also discussed his life as a fighter/promoter.
