UFC 238 results: Calvin Kattar starches Ricardo Lamas with one-two

Calvin Kattar was willing to take a few leg kicks to put his hands on Ricardo Lamas. When he did for real, the fight ended quickly.

Kattar (20-3 MMA, 4-1 UFC) stalked former title challenger Lamas (19-8 MMA, 10-6 UFC) before landing a one-two knockout at the 4:06 mark of the first round on Saturday night.

Lamas tried to slow down his opponent by taking out his legs. Although he appeared to have early success, it did little to stop Kattar from pushing him around the octagon. A clash of shins might’ve actually deterred Lamas from continuing his attack, and it appeared Kattar was just biding his time before he could let loose. A stiff jab and a body shot thudded into Lamas before the finishing sequence arrived.

Kattar picked up his second straight win and improved his overall record to 4-1 in the octagon. Lamas is now 1-3 in his past four fights and has suffered two brutal knockouts in two years.

The featherweight bout was part of the preliminary card of UFC 238 at United Center in Chicago. It aired on ESPN following prelims on UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+ and ahead of the main card on pay-per-view.
