Entering into 2021 UFC is headlining its first main event with former Featherweight Max Holloway facing the number 6th Featherweight fighter Calvin Kattar. Kattar’s coach, Tyson Chartier is aiming for the title shot with a win over Holloway. In his latest interview with BJPENN.Com, Chartier says,
“The goal was 3-0 in 2020 for Calvin. We didn’t care who it was, just 3-0, and the Zabit loss would be wiped away, we ended up getting two wins in 2020 but we are considering January 16, 2020, 2.0. It is an extended 2020. We wanted to establish ourselves as a headliner.”
“We went out there and proved we can go five rounds and a guy that can carry a card, the fight got us a new contract which is more money for Calvin and number two, and it was a chance to showcase our skills on a fight that had a lot of eyes. It gave us an opportunity to show we are the next contender.”
“The experience is good. Calvin and Max both have gone to Fight Island once. We won, he lost, although many think he won, we are undefeated in that cage and the fact we have been there before, there will be no surprises with the sleep schedule, weight cut, and all that.”
Chartier is confident that Kattar will defeat Holloway
Tyson Chartier is very confident that ‘The Boston Finisher’ will finish Max Holloway at Fight Island and after that, he wants a shot at Alexander Volkanovski. Chartier says, “If it isn’t there is superior politics going on. Brian will get the next shot and we will get the winner,”
“I know Zabit will lobby for it, but we offered to fight him in August and they said no. I told them, that is fine but don’t be surprised when we jump the line, but good luck. We are now in a position to do that. If we beat Max, there is no way anyone can argue that we don’t get the next title shot.”
