UFC 223 Results: Calvin Kattar Loses Via Decision To Renato Moicano

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — It wasn’t The Boston Finisher’s night in Brooklyn.

Methuen, Mass. native Calvin Kattar lost via unanimous decision to Renato Moicano (29-28, 30-27, 30-27) in a featherweight bout Saturday night at UFC 223.

Kattar entered the bout with a 10-fight win streak but couldn’t muster enough strikes to gain any sort of momentum. Moicano outstruck Kattar 116-41, according to FightMetric, and impressed judges despite not landing a takedown.

Kattar was coming off a strong performance at UFC 220 when he knocked out Shane Burgos in the third round in Boston. He falls to 2-1 in the UFC. Moicano, who now has won seven of his last eight fights, was Kattar’s highest-ranked opponent.
