Josh Emmett overtakes Calvin Kattar, claims he shot for UFC featherweight title

Josh Emmett,s case for a UFC featherweight title shot got much more grounded on Saturday, as he got a parted choice over Calvin Kattar

headlining UFC Fight Night in Austin, Texas Emmett (18-2) chased Kattar (23-6) with right hands and body shots throughout

a volatile five-round battle. Every one of the three appointed authorities' scorecards was close. Two authorities granted the 145-pound battle 48-47 to Emmett,

Although the battle was undoubtedly close, offering a wide variety of fan scores via online entertainment, Emmett said he was certain of the outcome.

Current hero Alexander Volkanovski is booked to keep his belt against Max Holloway at UFC 276 on July 2 in Las Vegas, and Emmett

T"I assumed I had four [rounds] to one," Emmett said. "I accept [a title shot should be next]. Calvin Kattar was ranked No. 4.

Take a look at the people he fought. Holloway and Volkanovski are apparently the best featherweights of all time,

however, they need fresh blood and I can make it happen." Saturday's challenge basically played out like a fight, as neither featherweight was hoping to use leg kicks or takedowns.
