2022 UFC event schedule: Calvin Kattar vs. Josh Emmett, Israel Adesanya vs. Jared Cannonier on tap

0 6


UFC continues to deliver on its promise of action fights. The promotion has rolled through the early part of 2022 with four PPVs already in the books. Interestingly, only one title has changed hands in that time with Deiveson Figueiredo topping Brandon Moreno in their trilogy to regain the championship.

The beginning of May saw some upheaval in the women’s strawweight and lightweight divisions. Carla Esparza upset Rose Namajunas to regain the title after nearly eight years away from it. Plus, after losing the title on the scale on Friday, Charles Oliveira made up for it and then some with his win over Justin Gaethje in the main event of UFC 274. By rule, he’s now the No. 1 contender for the title instead of the champion.

Then, June saw an all-time title fight between Jiri Prochazka and Glover Teixeira at UFC 275 where the two combatants laid it all on the line for over 24 minutes before Prochazka claimed the title with a late submission.
