When UFC Fight Night begins in the UK and the US tonight

It will be No. 5 vs. No. 9 in the UFC featherweight division tonight, with Josh Emmett taking on Ilia Topuria in the main event of Fight Night.

Emmett, 38, is looking to bounce back from a huge loss, after being introduced by Yair Rodriguez in February when the pair battled for the interim title. Prior to this loss, Emmett was on a winning streak, and the American can return to challenge for the title with a thrilling victory on Saturday.

However, he faces a tough test at Topuria, as the 26-year-old enters Jacksonville with a 13-0 professional record, including 12 stoppage wins. Most recently, the Georgian beat Bryce Mitchell in December, surprising the submission specialist by forcing him out. With the win, Topuria has entered the top 10 at featherweights, and he could take another step tonight.

An undisputed champion will be crowned in July when Rodriguez challenges official champion Aleksandar Volkanowski, and the winner of Saturday’s main event can establish himself as the next contender for the gold.
