Las Vegas , NV— Maybe the heading is a bit risqué? Who cares… Bottom line, another New England beast makes his debut in the UFC soon. Hitting the news late last night, Methuen, Ma native and Sityodtong fighter Calvin Kattar got the call for a much anticipated and long overdue shot at the UFC.

Kattar (16-2),  currently New England’s top ranked featherweight boasts an 8 fight win streak. The UFC however looks to test how big his ball-bag is when they called him to fight #19 ranked (in the world) Andre “Touchy” Fili (16-4) of Team Alpha Male for his debut in the promotion. The fight is slated for UFC 214  at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., and features three title fights in the pay-per-view portion of the card. Hats off to Kattar for not taking a second to think about it. The 29-year-old wants to make a statement that he belongs and this is one sure hell way to do it.

New England has been well represented this summer in the UFC. Rob Font, Matt Bessette, Greg Rebello, Kyle Bochniak, and now Calvin Kattar .

UFC 214 features

Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones,

Tyron Woodley vs. Demian Maia,

Cris Cyborg vs. Tonya Evinger.
