Highlights! Emmett Viciously Stops Bektic At UFC Sacramento

Highlights! Emmett Viciously Stops Bektic At UFC Sacramento

Josh Emmett continued his knockout rampage earlier tonight (Sat., July 13, 2019) at UFC on ESPN+ 13 live on ESPN+ from inside Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, Calif., when he stopped rising featherweight contender Mirsad Bektic via first-round TKO (punches).

Both men came out swinging and landed meaningful shots, but it was Emmett who struck the fight-changing blow. He hit Bektic with a stiff jab that put the young featherweight on the ground. Emmett pounced on top and started to unload heavy ground-and-pound as Bektic tried to defend. He did for a moment or two before Emmett landed a nasty punch underneath and landed the final few blows.

With this performance, Emmett locks down his second-straight knockout finish after taking out Michael Johnson with one punch back in March. He holds a one-punch finish over Ricardo Lamas from back in 2017 as well. Emmett continues to show the patience of a calculated finisher and has put the major heat on some really good featherweights. This most recent finish should land him close to a top 5 matchup as he makes a push for title contention in 2020.
