Max Holloway vs Calvin Kattar Betting Odds

UFC Fight Island 7 will feature two featherweight fighters with something to prove.

Max Holloway looks to bounce back from a recent slump, while Calvin Kattar looks to take out the former champion and establish himself as a real threat for the top spot in the featherweight division.

Holloway is a seasoned fighter and a veteran in the featherweight division with plenty of accolades to his name, including former champion.

Kattar is the number six ranked contender but is rising as a legitimate contender as he’s won four of his last five fights.

Max “Blessed” Holloway is a renowned fighter with a high-volume fighting style, but Calvin “The Boston Finisher” Kattar packs more power and has a greater reach.  Each fighter has a similar build, with both standing at 5’ 11” and weighing 145 lbs, but Kattar has a greater reach at 72” over Holloway’s 69”.  Both fighters have similar styles, and we’ll probably be set up for something more akin to a boxing match, as both fighters like to use their hands.

Fanduel has Holloway as the Moneyline favorite to win at -168 odds, but there’s better value going with the underdog Kattar at +142.

Despite his recent struggles, we mustn’t underestimate Max Holloway, who will bring experience and toughness to the octagon as a former featherweight champion. But Kattar has a chip on his shoulder and is hungry to prove himself further.

Fanduel favors Holloway, and it should be a closely contested fight, so I’d rather take the better value on the Moneyline with Kattar at +142.  I think he wins this one by Decision after five rounds.
