An explosive featherweight collision is set to take place on Saturday, June 18, 2022, in Austin, Texas. Because Calvin Kattar and Josh Emmett are continuing their respective pursuit of the first title shot in the promotion.
The return of the promotion to Austin this week is another strong case from Lone Star Estate. ESPN combines a featherweight bunker, a high-stakes guaranteed action between UFC, potential contenders Calvin Kattar and Josh Emmett on the 37th main event.
Kattar vs. Emmett Preview
Kattar entered the fourth-place finish at 145lbs, the last time he did so in January, surpassing Giga Chikadze. Boston's local Kattar was, the underdog in the competition, but ex-champion Max Holloway from early 2021 was able to respond to the loss of heavy points.
Meanwhile, Kattar's compatriot Emmett is looking for a fifth consecutive win that could potentially move him up to seventh, and the 37-year-old knows that completion will go a long way toward that goal. G. Emmett has won the knockout / TKO for three of his last five victories but has come a long way in his two recent fights.
Calvin Kattar vs. Josh Emmett predictions
Both fighters are passionate featherweight strikers. His boxing is superior, but if we talk about technique, the Kattar looks better than Emmett. We think the Kattar will come out on top with power and technique. Everything can change if Emmet is cleared,
It also benefits when it comes to five rounds of experience. His last three fights are 25 minutes long, while Emmett has only played five rounds once in his career, returning to the local scene in 2014.
Emmett's game plan is unlikely to accelerate to win the decision. He is explosive and throws everything in his shots which do not last more than five rounds. The Kattar style is more suitable for maintaining solid speed while maintaining its strength.
Therefore, we can expect Emmet to start with a bloodbath or an action that would make him look extremely dangerous for three rounds. We can see him looking for an early knockout, but in all likelihood, the Kattar's chin and cardio will enable him to withstand the storm and force Emmett to wear down violently to make the least decision.
Prediction: Kattar via Decision
What do you think will stop Kattar Emmett's initial dangerous war? Will Emmett be able to knock out the cutter?
