Main Card

Josh Emmett

Josh Emmett is an American Featherweight MMA fighter that hails from Sacramento, California and fights out of the well renowned Team Alpha Male. He holds a professional MMA record with 15-2. Emmet entered the UFC in 2016 as an undefeated fighter and since then he was 6-2. He is coming off back-to-back wins in 2019 against Mirsad Bektic and Michael Johnson and hopes to rise up in the featherweight division rankings with a win over Arnold Allen.

Emmet is known for his durability as most of his fights are won via decisions. He also carries a knockout punch as 6 of his 15 wins came from TKO/KOs. Against Allen, expect him to go and try to finish the fight early but will not hesitate to bring the fight to the floor.

Arnold Allen

Arnold Allen is a young 25-year-old professional MMA fighter that came from Felixstowe, Suffolk in England. He fights out of Tristar Gym and has a professional fight record of 15-1. Allen is dubbed as “Almighty” and since coming to the UFC in 2015, he has been highly regarded and undefeated in six bouts. Among his UFC victims include, Yaotzin Meza, Alam Omer, Makwan Amirkhani, Mads Burnell, Jordan Rinaldi and his recent win came from Gilbert Melendes.

Four of those wins came from the judges’ scorecards and all came from unanimous decisions. Before coming to the UFC he is known to knock down his opponents but with higher competition, he has not knocked anybody down but won by submissions. Allen is a fighter with high upside and beating Emmet will help him go up the ranks and live up to the hype that he brought.

Allen is expected to win this fight as forecasted by Best Sports Book Online.
