Josh Emmett Flattens Bryce Mitchell in UFC 296

Josh Emmett delivered a knockout that will be etched in recent memory at UFC 296.

Emmett (19-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) entered the octagon for his third bout of 2023, eager to break a two-fight losing streak.

His opponent, Bryce Mitchell, took the fight on short notice, setting the stage for an unexpected clash. However, Mitchell (16-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) didn't withstand Emmett's onslaught for long, succumbing to a devastating knockout punch at 1:57 of Round 1.

The featherweight showdown marked the opening of the UFC 296 main card at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

From the initial moments, Emmett's reputation for power kept Mitchell on edge. Emmett lunged forward in an attempt to land a body shot, but Mitchell skillfully evaded the initial connection. Regrettably for Mitchell, his defensive success proved short-lived.

Emmett closed the distance, unleashing a right hand that found Mitchell's chin. The impact left Mitchell unconscious, prompting an immediate celebration for Emmett. As cameras captured Mitchell on the canvas, his body exhibited seizure-like movements, underscoring the force and intensity of Emmett's knockout blow.
