BEST MAX HOLLOWAY VS CALVIN KATTAR PREDICTION

Max Holloway to win (1X2)
Tipped at: 1.63 - 9th Jan 16:39
I'm on Holloway to get the win over Kattar ... This fight is a striker's wet dream - two guys that don't want nothing to do with the ground game, trying to punch each other in the face. The big difference here is that Kattar gets hit more than he hits his opponents, while Holloway lands 2 more than he eats ... On top of that, better accuracy and defensive percentages for Holloway just add value to the notion that he's the better and more technically sound striker in this fight. Katter is a take-one-to-give-one kinda guy, that doesn't work against Holloway. The 3-inch reach disadvantage for Holloway doesn't bother me that much - he's beaten longer guys before no problem. Another thing; Kattar doesn't kick. He only uses his hands. This is a great opportunity for Max to display his kicking game and well-rounded toolbox on the feet. I love Kattar so frickin' much as a fan, but Holloway pieces him up here and probably wins a decision. Don't see a finish for either one.

This should be a striking matchup between these two as they will not want to fight on the mat. Both guys can take a lot of damage. Max has never been finished in his UFC career and neither has Calvin. Should be a good main event to start the year. Expect it to go the distance

Calvin Kattar makes some sense in this spot as the gym he trains at is on a nice run and I do not think Holloways best days are in front of him and therefore think he is vulnerable to the awesome leg kicks that Kattar has and thats the way I am going this Saturday in the main event.

BANKER TOP TIP

Max Holloway to win (1X2)

Kattar's striking chops are legit, and he goes after the finish at all times during a fight, even if he was the clear lead on the scorecards. That was on display when he was still trying to put Ige away in the final seconds of a fight where he was clearly seconds from winning a clear decision. Holloway is still a great fighter. His 1-3 run is a bit misleading. The Poirier fight came after moving up in weight and running into a guy fighting better than he ever had. The two losses to Volkanovski were very close, especially the second, where the majority of media members tracked by MMADecisions.com scored the fight for Holloway. The Hawaiian can stick to a gameplan and has operated at a higher level than Kattar for years. That experience and discipline should tip things in Holloway's favor.
