Josh Emmett Wins Brutal Match in Instant Classic!

In the UFC’s main event of ESPN 11, Curtis Blaydes met Aleksander Volkov in the cage. Their fight aimed for the top-end of the heavyweight division. However, the highlight clash of the day was its co-main event. This time, Josh Emmett took on Shane Burgos in a brutal war of friction. It was undoubtedly one of the best fights of the year so far. Notably, both fighters deserved every word or praises after such an astonishing show. 

After fifteen minutes of violent moves, the victory belongs to Emmett. However, his rival has shown off his enormous heart and an extreme chin. Both of them are already famous for being technical power strikers. From the start, we couldn’t take our eyes off the screen. Emmett charged first with some ripping straights, but his opponent managed to eat them. After that, he hyperextended his knee quite early into the first round. 

Josh Emmett later claimed that it was a torn ACL, which made his victory even more insane. He took the win in the first round of their match. After that, Burgos used his reach advantage to pump his jab and became more active in the second round. On the other side, Emmett was struggling to try staying mobile. At one point, he suffered a back-fist after successfully blocking Burgos. By the end, Emmett emerged as the winner. Not only did he scored a couple of brutal KOs, he also showed more dominance in the third round.

Future

Now that he got another win, Emmett is hoping to put together a streak to earn a title shot. However, he will need at least nine months to recover from his torn ACL. Let’s see how he will thrive when he comes back!
