Pros react after Arnold Allen defeats Calvin Kattar by TKO at UFC Vegas 63
Tonight’s UFC Vegas 63 event was headlined by a key featherweight matchup featuring Arnold Allen taking on Calvin Kattar.
Allen (19-1 MMA) had entered the contest sporting an eleven-fight winning streak, his most recent being a first-round TKO victory over Dan Hooker. ‘Almighty’ was sporting a perfect 9-0 record inside of the Octagon ahead of tonight’s affair.
Meanwhile, Calvin Kattar (23-7 MMA) was looking to rebound from his split decision loss to Josh Emmett this past June. Prior to that setback, ‘The Boston Finisher’ was coming off a unanimous decision victory over Giga Chikadze.
Tonight’s UFC Vegas 63 main event did not end in the fashion anyone had hoped for. After an exciting opening four minutes, ‘The Boston Finisher’ appeared to blow out his knee in the late stages of round one. Kattar decided to continue fighting for round two but immediately proceeded to collapse following a low kick from Allen. The fight was immediately waved off by the referee and ‘Almighty’ walked away the victor.

That’s more than likely ACL. I tore mine the exact same way landing from a switch knee. #UFCVegas63

Allen was looking surgical tonight. Southpaws are a tricky bunch to prep for. Unfortunate for Kattar after the jump knee attempt. Hoping for the best with that injury for him. #UFCVegas63
