The UFC featherweights step into the Fight Island spotlight tonight as Calvin Kattar and Dan Ige collide at UFC on ESPN 13.
Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card, which airs on ESPN and live streams on ESPN+.
MAIN CARD (10PM ET/7PM PT)
ABDUL RAZAK ALHASSAN (10-1-0) VS. MOUNIR LAZZEZ (9-1-0)
Andrews: Lazzez is making his octagon debut and looks to be an up and coming local prospect. Alhassan missed weight. Both are good finishers, but I will have to go with the experience of Alhassan.
Andrews Prediction Abdu Razak Alhassan via TKO
MOLLY MCCANN (10-1-0) VS. TALIA SANTOS (15-1-0)
Andrews: Santos is an up and coming talent, but McCann should be able to get the decision.
Andrews Prediction: Molly McCann via UD
JIMMIE RIVERA (22-4-0) VS. CODY STAMMAN (19-2-1)
Andrews: Rivera has only lost to the top of the division while Stamman has too. Rivera has the better experience though to overcome and get the decision.
Andrews Prediction: Jimmie Rivera via UD
TIM ELLIOTT (15-11-1) VS. RYAN BENOIT (10-6-0)
Andrews: Both guys need a win badly, but Elliott overcomes some early trouble to tap “Baby Face.”
Andrews Prediction: Tim Elliott via submission
CALVIN KATTAR (21-2-0) VS. DAN IGE (14-2-0)
Andrews: Good fight. Kattar has the striking and endurance to overcome the pressure of Ige.
Andrews Prediction: Calvin Kattar via TKO
