Looking at the UFC on FOX card from Winnipeg, there were a lot of fights people were expecting to see massive finishes from. I’d say Ricardo Lamas vs Josh Emmett was probably last on the list. But Emmett just shocked the MMA community with one of the best knockouts of the year over Lamas, catching him flush, stiffening Lamas before he even hit the ground.
Ricardo Lamas entered this fight as a significant betting favorite, Emmett saw it coming though and evaded the punch before swivelling on the spot and hammering Lamas with a vicious left hook that sent him crashing to the canvas.
With this win, Emmett builds on the momentum of a decision defeat of Felipe Arantes. Now one of the hottest contenders in the UFC featherweight division – and very possibly a new member of the division’s top-10 – he is 13-1 overall, and 4-1 in the UFC’s Octagon.
Meanwhile, Lamas is now 18-6 overall.
