Calvin Kattar lived up to his “Boston Finisher” nickname on Saturday night.

The Methuen, Mass. native knocked out Jeremy Stephens with a devastating series of elbow strikes to the face in the second round of his featherweight bout at UFC 249 to bounce back into the win column.

The No. 7-ranked Stephens started off strong with a series of body shots and strikes to Kattar’s upper body in the first round. But the momentum swung to the No. 9-ranked Kattar’s side when he landed his first big shot of the fight with under one minute left in the first frame.

Kattar continued the onslaught in the second round when he knocked down Stephens with a right elbow to drop him to the canvas before pouncing on him and striking him with a left elbow to finish the fight.

This is Kattar’s first victory since he defeated Ricardo Lamas at UFC 238 last year. He lost to Zabit Magomedsharipov at UFC Fight Night Moscow back in November. “The Boston Finisher” improved to 5-2 in the UFC with the win.
