Calvin Kattar vs. Arnold Allen ended in disappointment after Kattar suffered an accidental leg injury at UFC Fight Night on Oct. 29. and several Fight Night cards in 2022.
The second half of the year heats up with some memorable moments that should stand the test of time. Islam Makhachev, the student of former champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, established himself as the UFC lightweight champion with a second-round submission against Charles Oliveira at UFC 280 on Oct. 22. August welcomed one of the main surprise candidates of the year. Leon Edwards, likely on the verge of losing a decision, shocked the world with a headbutt of pound-for-pound great Kamaru Usman in the final minute of their UFC welterweight title fight.
