For Holloway, this will be his first non-title fight since he defeated Ricardo Lamas at UFC 199. Holloway has not won a fight since his 2019 title defense over Frankie Edgar at UFC 240. Since then, he lost the belt to Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 245 before losing to him again in his most recent outing at UFC 251.
As for Kattar, this will be his third UFC main event as he enters the fight on a two fight win streak.

The first win came against Jeremy Stephens as he knocked him out with an elbow at UFC 249. In his most recent outing, Kattar defeated Dan Ige by unanimous decision at UFC on ESPN 13. He looks to pick up his biggest win yet as he tries to get past Holloway.
