The Main Event:

The UFC showcased a Featherweight brawl in the main event of UFC Vegas 46. We had the No. 5 UFC ranked, former EliteXC competitor & BJJ blue belt, Calvin “The Boston Finisher” Kattar, with a 22-5 record, entering the octagon to combat the No. 8 ranked former kickboxer & GLORY combatant, Giga ‘The Ninja’ Chikadze, with a current record of 14-2.

Outcome:
The Boston Finisher was in fine form headlining tonight. He impressed for the entire five rounds, shattering Giga’s seven-bout win streak in a Fight of the Night Performance victory.


The Co-Main Event:

Meanwhile, the co-main event featured Heavyweight contenders, Chase ‘The Vanilla Gorilla’ Sherman, and Jake ‘The Prototype’ Collier. Former Titan FC competitor & bare knuckle boxer, Sherman, held a 15-8 record entering the octagon tonight. Meanwhile, the Missouri Native, Collier, held a record of 12-6 walking into this bout.

Outcome:
Collier didn’t lose a minute taking Sherman down, slashing him with bloody elbows and submitting him via rear-naked choke in a thrilling first round finish.


The Rest of the Main Card:

Prior to the headlining bouts, we were graced with compelling showdowns including: Flyweights Brandon ‘Raw Dawg’ Royval and Rogério Bontorin with a squeaker of a split decision victory by Royval, securing his third win out of his last five fights... a Women’s Flyweight bout featuring the Jersey Girl, Katlyn ‘The Blonde Fighter’ Chookagian once again out-performing Brazilian Jennifer Maia with a Unanimous Decision victory, bringing Katlyn’s win streak to three... an exciting but brief affair between the debuting Vlacheslav ‘Slava Claus’ Borshchev and Dakota ‘Hairy’ Bush in a first round tilt, which ended with a slick liver shot KO/TKO, as well as another Decision win from our Main Card opener when Bill ‘Señor Perfecto’ Algeo took Joanderson ‘Tubaråo’ Brito to the judges scorecards in a vicious battle.

For much more detail on the main card and plenty of tidbits about the prelims, be sure to hit play on the show above, or below, and hear what our fight experts have to say about the event last night.


Overall, this now dwindled down 10-bout card saw eleven cancellations approaching the event, but yielded two exhilarating first round finishes, one thrilling KO/TKO, one sweet submission, and eight hard-fought decisions, one of them split. Rounding things out, bonuses for putting forth POTN efforts went to Viacheslav Borshchev & Jake Collier; FOTN honors went to Calvin Kattar vs. Giga Chikadze. What a wild Saturday night of fights we have to share with you, join us to discuss all the action!
