During the recent media day, Calvin Kattar shared his thoughts on fighting Aljamain Sterling.

“Things work out the way they do for a reason, and I feel like the timing’s right for UFC 300,” Kattar said, as quoted by “It’s such a historic card. It’s an honor to be a part of it.

… (It’s a) big opportunity fighting a former champ. If you want to be great, and you want big-moment opportunities, those are the guys you’ve got to compete against. I’m grateful I have another opportunity to step in there against a high-level opponent and show why I’m amongst the best in the division.

I’m planning on fighting the best Aljamain Sterling that steps foot in the octagon. In my mind, he’s going to be at his best version, and I’m prepared to go wherever the fight takes me”.
