UFC Fight Night poster released: Max Holloway, Calvin Kattar featured in backward faceoff

If you’ve followed the UFC, you’ve likely seen your fair share of faceoffs by now.

But have you ever seen a backward faceoff?

Well, now you have.

On Thursday, the promotion released the poster for its upcoming UFC Fight Night on Jan. 16. The event kicks off the UFC’s 2021 schedule and is headlined by a featherweight banger between former UFC 145-pound king Max Holloway and New England Cartel star Calvin Kattar. The card will take place on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.

MMA Junkie recently learned a portion of the event will likely air on ABC, marking the promotion’s debut on the network – and its return to network television.

The current UFC Fight Night lineup includes:

  • Max Holloway vs. Calvin Kattar
  • Sara McMann vs. Julianna Pena
  • Mike Grundy vs. Nik Lentz
  • Brian Kelleher vs. Ricky Simon
  • Jacob Kilburn vs. Austin Lingo
