Calvin Kattar vs Josh Emmett Notes
Kattar returns to action on the heels of a five-round unanimous-decision win over Giga Chikadze that earned him a Fight of the Night bonus back in early January. The win came after an extended layoff following his January 2021 loss by unanimous decision to former champion Max Holloway.
Emmett has been idle since earning a three-round unanimous-decision win over Dan Ige six months ago at UFC 269, which extended his current win streak to four fights and vaulted him to No. 7 on the UFC featherweight rankings.

Donald Cerrone vs Joe Lauzon Odds
A pair of lightweight veterans take center stage in Saturday’s co-main event as Joe Lauzon (+130) takes on Donald Cerrone (-160). Lauzon will be looking to win two in a row for the first time since 2014 as he returns to the Octagon following a 32-month layoff.

Kevin Holland (-300) aims to build on his recent successful return to the UFC welterweight division when he takes on Tim Means (+220) in a three-round matchup on Saturday night. Holland ended a three-fight winless slide with a decisive second-round TKO win over Alex Oliveira in his first 170-pound contest in five years at UFC 272.
Means is enjoying a late-career renaissance after extending his current win streak to three fights with a unanimous-decision win over Nicolas Dalby at UFC Vegas 30.
