Layouts before the fight
If Justin Geydzhi can be called the strongest calf kicker in the UFC, then the title of the best bad kicker can be assigned to Georgian Gige Chikadze. As a basic kickboxer, Chikaze has taken his punching technique to the next level, especially in the area of body shots. And this is not surprising, given that at the peak of his kickboxing career, Giga successfully performed in the strongest league on the planet Glory, where he regularly scored knockouts with body punches.
The further transition to MMA was not easy. Chikaze confidently dealt with drummers, but had serious problems with basic wrestlers. The most embarrassing defeat happened at the 2018 Dana White Candidates Series, when Chikaze launched an opponent behind his back and was strangled in the third round.
It was possible to fully enter the UFC in 2019, and since then the native of Tbilisi has not lost. At first, drawing close victories, he reached the peak and in just a few fights he reached the top 10 of the UFC featherweight division. And all thanks to a series of bright victories by knockouts. Chikaze’s victims included the legendary Cub Swanson and Edson Barbosa.
The upcoming fight with Calvin Kattar will show how ready Giga is to enter the category of elite fighters in the division. Kattar failed his attempt when exactly a year ago he lost without a chance to Max Holloway, missing 445 accented punches.
Kattar is a base wrestler who decided to pursue a career in MMA immediately after graduation. After switching to another sport, he improved his boxing skills and subsequently began to rely only on them.
Kattar, like Chikadze, does not like to work as the first number, preferring to fail the opponent and counterattack. Almost all of his knockouts he made out with a “deuce”. But in battles with universal drummers, the American is lost. Holloway took the volume of blows, Zabit Magomedsharipov – variety. And in the case of Chikaze Kattar, you must always keep the body in mind, because a hit in the liver can end the fight in an instant.
The forecast for the fight Giga Chikadze – Calvin Cattar
If in terms of skills and diversity, Chikaze is seen as the favorite, then purely in the functional aspect, Kattar has the advantage. The American breathes better and can fight at the same pace for all five rounds. Giga will have to save energy and explode at the end of each five-minute period in the hope of finishing. Such tactics led to a spectacular victory over Barboza, but there will definitely be problems in a duel with a pick and “unbroken” Kattar.
Our predictions for the fight Giga Chikaze – Calvin Kattar: the fight will go to the fourth round for 1.83 and the victory of one and the fighters on points for 2.47.
