This is the UFC 300 live blog for Calvin Kattar vs. Aljamain Sterling, the featured featherweight prelim fight this Saturday in Las Vegas.

A staple of the UFC’s featherweight division since 2017, Kattar’s 7-5 record in the promotion belies the quality of his performances. The New England native has fought a murderer’s row of competition at 145 pounds, most recently losing to top-5 fighter Arnold Allen when he suffered a knee injury in the second round of their 2022 fight. His first bout back since that injury, Kattar wants to prove he’s still a top talent in the featherweight division.

The former UFC bantamweight champion, Sterling was in the process of the most successful men’s 135-pound title reign in UFC history before running into Sean O’Malley last August. After O’Malley knocked him out, Sterling decided to finally jump up to featherweight and leave 135 pounds to his friend and teammate Merab Dvalishvili. This is Sterling’s first bout at 145 pounds and “The Funk Master” hopes to make a big impression in his divisional debut, one that will put him on the short list for a title shot.
