    This line seems off.... 

    Dan Ige has quietly put together a 6 fight winning streak and beating good fighters along the way. After defeating Kevin Aguilar, Ige then won back to back decisions. Although both were close, Ige proved he's worthy of moving up the ranks and most recently beat elite kickboxers Edson Barboza. Impressively Ige went toe to toe with Edson's 4 inch reach advantage as well and found success. The arsonal of weapons Barboza has at his disposal is scary, but Ige pressed forward out working Edson for the win. While Calvin Kattar has looked sharp knocking out Chris Fishgold, Ricardo Lamas and most recently KO'ing Jeremy Stephen in round 2. 

    The biggest difference maker when capping this fight.... the style at which Ige works. Yes, Katter has shown fast hand speed and terrific boxing skills, but seems to do his best work in space. Dan Ige has adopted a strong forward pressure style using his own boxing skills mixed with wrestling when needed. That kinda pressure has opened holes in the defense of Kattar, even in wins the path to success is pressure. Not allowing Calvin to use his jab setting up combination will allow Ige to walk him down. Good striking volume, toughness and throwing in takedown attempts could be the perfect mix for damage. Also, Kattar is 5'11 and Ige is 5'7 which many believe reach would highly favor Kattar. The slight 1 inch reach advantage to Katter will be a welcome for Ige after facing Barboza's 4 inch advantage last fight. 

    Calvin Kattar should be the favorite, but not at this price and this fight should be closer then the market indicates. At +230 on Dan Ige giving us an implied probability of roughly 31%, that's incredible value on a fighter that has all the tools to win.
