Calvin Kattar looks to build on a big knockout win when he takes on Dan Ige, winner of six straight, in the five-round main event. Both men are facing quick turnarounds after competing in May. Kattar knocked out Jeremy Stephens at UFC 249 on May 9 while Ige scored a close decision win over Edson Barboza a week later on May 16.
