Notice: Function amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `init` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the plugin with slug `jetpack` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Calvin Kattar was surprised he didn’t get his hand raised on Saturday night at UFC Austin.
In the lead-up to the UFC Fight Night contest, many fans were looking forward to Kattar vs. Emmett, as many expected it to be a very fan-friendly fight. That ended up being the case as it was a back-and-forth fight and in the end, it was Josh Emmett edging out a split decision. For Kattar, he thought he should’ve won.
Calvin Kattar’s Post-Fight Thoughts vs Josh Emmett
“I thought I was just going to get my hand raised at the end. I didn’t care, sometimes we give a s*** if it’s unanimous or a split [decision],” Kattar said after UFC Austin on the post-fight show. “I thought I did enough to win the fight. Josh is a class act, a tough kid. Congrats to him and his team.”
Kattar admits Emmett’s power did pose some problems but he still thought he was landing the more effective shots. Kattar also never let up as he kept moving forward, and when the final bell rang, he was confident he was going to get the win.
“There was never a point where I thought I could sit back but I thought I was edging him out definitely,” Kattar said. “Especially the longer the fight went. Fifth round, I thought I took it. I know he wanted me to stand in the center and bang but I mean that would be cool if I wasn’t up in the fight maybe. I thought I was landing the better shots but I’m not a judge. So it went the way it did but I thought I did enough to win the fight.”
What’s Next for Calvin Kattar in the UFC?

“Just that I thought I did enough to beat a high caliber opponent,” Kattar said. “Just have to go back, check the tape, see what’s up but really kind of just got more questions than anything.”
