The first UFC main event win of the year went the way of Calvin Kattar, who defeated Giga Chikadze at UFC on ESPN 32.

Kattar (23-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC) returned to the octagon from a 12-month layoff and brutal loss to Max Holloway and delivered a lopsided beating of Chikadze (14-3 MMA, 7-1 UFC) that resulted in a unanimous decision win.

The performance served as a reminder that Kattar remains a player in the featherweight division, and he set himself up for another marquee matchup.
