The Jan. 16 card is headlined by a clash between former featherweight champion Max Holloway and Calvin Kattar. Holloway has dropped back-to-back fights to Alexander Volkanovski, losing the featherweight championship and failing to win it back in the rematch. Kattar is a rising star in the division and will enter the fight on a two-fight winning streak, knocking out Jeremy Stephens and taking a decision win over Dan Ige.
