The MMA Vivisection - UFC on ESPN: Kattar vs. Ige picks, odds, & analysis

Zane Simon and Connor Ruebusch are back to breakdown this week’s UFC Fight Night event on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. With picks and odds for every fight on the card. From Calvin Kattar vs. Dan Ige in the main event down to Kenneth Bergh vs. Jorge Gonzalez in the opening prelim.

This Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs. Ige card feels like a direct result of UFC 251 being as stacked as it was. The main event between Calvin Kattar and Dan Ige is definitely great. Jimmie Rivera vs. Cody Stamann is a top quality scrap. From there, though, things take a pretty steep downward turn. Lots of newcomers, little in the way of importance. Still, we’ve got the whole thing covered in one big show, to catch listeners up to speed on just who is filling out this mid-week UFC offering.
