Can Giga Chikadze steal that spot?

Giga Chikadze’s Fight Night main event against Calvin Kattar coming up on Saturday may well have gotten more interesting this week, when Max Holloway pulled out of a featherweight title shot at UFC 272. Right now, Chan Sung Jung and Henry Cejudo are both pursuing that open slot against Alexander Volkanovski, but you know how this sport is. Who’s to say Giga can’t steal that spot with an impressive performance? Plus, we look at the recent bonanza of heavyweight fight bookings and discuss Sean O’Malley saying most fighters don’t make any money for the UFC.
