Calvin Kattar’s post-fight MRI results after UFC Vegas 63 showed no positive results.

Kattar injured his right knee in the first round of the tournament headliner against Arnold Allen after a bad landing from an attempted mid-flight knee strike. Kattar tried to advance to the second round before he was eight seconds behind him, giving Allen the TKO win.

On Friday, the 34-year-old revealed on Instagram that he had torn his cruciate ligament and hoped to return late next year.

“There is little I can say, this is what it is. I tore my anterior cruciate ligament, I’m due for surgery in a couple of weeks. Should be ready for operation by the end of 2023. The goal remains the same,” Kattar said.

It’s been a rollercoaster year for Kattar, who started 2022 with a standout performance defeating Giga Chikaze in January at UFC Vegas 46. The 8th featherweight in the global MMA Fighting rankings returned in June to headline UFC Austin against Josh Emmett, where he was on the wrong end of a contentious split decision.
