The Octagon is back on Yas Island for a rare Wednesday night show for UFC Fight Island 1, an 11-bout card headlined by Calvin Kattar vs. Dan Ige.

Kattar (21-4) is looking to go 2-0 to start the year as he is coming off a very impressive knockout win over Jeremy Stephens at UFC 249. He is 5-2 inside the Octagon with notable wins over Shane Burgos, Andre Fili, and Ricardo Lamas.

Ige (14-2) meanwhile, is looking to extend his winning streak to seven. Ever since losing his UFC debut to Julio Arce, the Hawaiian have rattled off six-straight wins. This will be his third fight of 2020 where last time out he earned a split decision win over Edson Barboza and before that beat Mirsad Bektic by split decision.

Tonight’s Fight Island card is co-headlined by a really exciting flyweight bout between Tim Elliott and Ryan Benoit. Elliott is looking to snap his three-fight losing skid while Benoit is looking for his first win since November of 2017.

Also featured on the main card is a very intriguing featherweight clash between ranked bantamweights, Jimmie Rivera and Cody Stamann. The pair took the fight on just days’ notice, and a win for either man should get them a top-10 opponent next time out.

The card also features the return of knockout artist, Abdul Razak Alhassan as he opens up the main card against UFC newcomer, Mounir Lazzez.
