The holiday season is a time when many sports leagues opt to shut down for a break. Ultimate Fighting Championship is part of that group, taking a one month break between events.

UFC wrapped up its 2021 calendar with Fight Night: Lewis vs. Daukaus, also known as UFC Vegas 45. Lewis secured a first round KO. The next UFC event after the holiday break is Fight Night: Kattar vs. Chikadze, which will also be known as UFC Vegas 46. It will take place on January 15th and air on ESPN+. The preliminary card is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. ET and the main card is scheduled to get going at 5 p.m.

The card is topped by a featherweight bout between fifth-ranked Calvin Kattar and eighth-ranked Giga Chikadze. Although Chikadze is the lower ranked fighter, he is a noticeable favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, installed at -210 to win.

We’ve got a lengthy list of fights on the rest of the card, but only two are known to be on the main card. UFC.com is listing Kattar-Chikadze and a welterweight bout between 15th ranked Muslim Salikhov and Michael Pereira Lima as main bouts.

DraftKings Sportsbook is offering odds for all the fights below. MMA Mania is also listing a bantamweight bout between Raoni Barcelos and Victor Henry but there are no odds yet at DKSB.
