“I feel great,” Kattar said. “He’s a tough fighter, 7-0 in the UFC. They all counted me out in this fight. Like I’ve been saying, everybody counting me out doesn’t matter. As long as you believe in yourself that’s all that matters.”

It was Kattar’s first fight since this time in 2021 when he suffered a brutal loss to Max Holloway. Kattar improves to 7-3 in UFC, as Chikadze fell to 14-3.

Other winners Saturday night included Jake Collier (submission, rear naked choke), Brandon Royval (split decision), Katlyn Chookagian (unanimous decision), Viacheslav Borshchev (KO/TKO), and Bill Algeo (unanimous decision).
