Since then, he has become one of the top featherweight fighters in the UFC and is currently ranked #7 in the world rankings. He holds notable victories over Yair Rodriguez, Max Holloway and Zabit Magomedsharipov.
Kattar’s introduction to MMA was completely by chance. As a kid growing up on the streets of Methuen, he had been labelled “the crazy man” due to his reckless behavior that often got him into trouble with law enforcement. After being arrested once too many times, his father decided to enrol him into a local boxing gym when Calvin was just 15 years old as an alternative form of outlet for his energy. It was there that he developed an affinity for combat sports and soon after moved onto train Brazilian jiu-jitsu at Lauzon MMA – where he coached alongside UFC veteran Joe Lauzon until 2015.
Throughout Kattar’s early career as a professional MMA fighter between 2007-2012, he amassed an impressive 17-2 record before signing with WSOF (World Series Of Fighting) which would later be rebranded as PFL (Professional Fighters League). During this stint with PFL/WSOF Cal competed six times capturing three wins by knockout/TKO while also suffering three losses resulting from submission or decision defeat over two years before joining Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS) show in 2017 – afterwards earning himself contract with UFC organization shortly thereafter debuting against Andre Fili which resulted in Doctor stoppage TKO victory on Oct 6th 2018 marking the beginning of what we now know today as Calvin “The Boston Finisher” Katta’s rise within FeatherWeight division among other notable names such Alyxandru Lungu , Dan Ige , Arnold Allen .

This amazing fight brought big attention towards Kattars’ name worldwide boosting awareness & popularity even further than ever before .
Outside and inside of cage Calvin leads very disciplined lifestyle focusing mostly around healthy eating habits & training regime constantly striving towards achieving highest potential possible at all times no matter what obstacles may come along way throughout life journey ahead of him . Whenever not training mandatory daily routine consists out spending time either catching up on sleep or hanging out outside with friends enjoying some much needed R&R after hard days work done earlier during day while also emphasizing importance surrounding mental health aspect staying away from any sort toxic environment both physically & mentally speaking
Overall regardless whatever future holds for this young rising star known simply only ” The Boston Finisher” rest assured one thing remains true above all else: That whenever it comes down stepping inside octagon Calvin will always give fans something worth watching displaying signature aggressive style promising never ending entertainment value sure stay memorable long after final bell rings signaling end bout night !
