Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicks off the New Year with a thrilling Featherweight contenders’ bout that will see No. 5-ranked Calvin Kattar take on No. 8-seeded Giga Chikadze inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Jan. 15, 2022. UFC Vegas 46’s reworked co-main event will feature a Heavyweight slobberknocker between Octagon veterans Jake Collier and Chase Sherman.

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Lewis (25-8, 1 NC) watched his four-fight win streak go up in smoke at the hands (and feet) of current interim titleholder Ciryl Gane. Prior to his “Bon Gamin” loss, “The Black Beast” smashed his way through the likes of Curtis Blaydes and Aleksei Oleynik, among others.

Daukaus (12-3) remains undefeated since crossing over from Cage Fury Fighting Championships back in summer 2020. The Philadelphian already holds a 4-0 record inside the Octagon and is fresh off his destruction of Shamil Abdurakhimov at UFC 266.

Don’t expect this to last all five rounds.
