Rodriguez vs Emmett Fight Preview:
Talking about Rodriguez first, the No. 2 ranked UFC featherweight has won against the likes of Brian Ortega, Jeremy Stephens, and Chan Sung Jung. He turned pro in 2011 and won The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America tournament in 2014.
He is a highlight-reel striker and is returning from the injury he suffered against Brian Ortega. In recent years, he has introduced himself with big power and uncanny toughness. His last fight was against Calvin Kattar in June last year.
Given his eccentric stand-up game, Yair Rodriguez is one of the most difficult opponents to face, whether it’s his hands, feet, knees, or elbows.
On the other hand, No. 5 ranked UFC featherweight Josh Emmett turned pro in 2011. He joined the UFC in 2016 and will enter the game with a five-fight win streak. In his career, he has registered wins against the likes of Calvin Kattar, Dan Ige, and Shane Burgos.
That said, he is one of the scariest fighters in the 145-pound division with one-punch knockout power that can easily turn his opponent’s lights out.
