Renato “Moicano” Carneiro (11-1-1) vs Calvin “The Boston Finisher” Kattar (18-2) set for UFC 223.
Carneiro (also know as Moicano) (11-1-1) is looking to rebound after the first loss of his MMA career where he lost to rising contender Brian “T-City” Ortega (13-0,1NC) via third-round submission in a fight of night performance at UFC 214. The biggest win of his MMA career came against UFC veteran Jeremy “Lil Heathen” Stephens (27-14) via split decision at UFC on FOX 24.
Kattar (18-2) is riding a ten fight win streak into this bout, where most recently he handed previously undefeated prospect Shane “Hurricane” Burgos (10-1) his first MMA loss via third-round technical knockout. Kattar’s only other UFC performance came on short notice where he beat Andre “Touchy” Fill (18-5) by unanimous decision at UFC 214.
This bout will be contested at featherweight (145lbs).
