MINTY BETS: It's time for UFC Fight Tonight in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm Minty Bets joined by Kevin Iole to give us his best bet on the main event, which is a featherweight bout between Giga Chikadze -250 versus Calvin Kattar +200. Kevin, what's your pick for this one?

KEVIN IOLE: Boy, I love this fight, Minty. I mean, this is going to be two guys just going at it. I mean, this can't help but be a great fight, number one. Let's just start there.

Both guys are great strikers-- a little bit different style of striking. Calvin Kattar, ranked number 5 in the featherweight division, he is coming off a really bad loss to Max Holloway. I think he absorbed an inordinate number of strikes in that fight last year. He's been off an entire year because of the physicality of that loss.

But what didn't happen in that fight? He did not go down. And Calvin Kattar has never been knocked down in a career that's almost 15 years long right now. He's never been knocked down.

Giga Chikadze is a great kickboxer. He's got great quickness. I think Chikadze is going to win this. I think he is a guy on a roll. But I think it's going to be by decision. I don't think he's going to be able to finish Calvin Kattar.

If Max Holloway, with as many times as he hit Calvin in that fight, couldn't finish him, I don't think Giga Chikadze is going to do it. So I'm going to go ahead and I'm going to play Giga Chikadze by decision.

MINTY BETS: Thank you very much, Kevin.

KEVIN IOLE: Well, thank you, Minty. Appreciate it.
