The UFC travels from Singapore to Austin, Texas, for this week’s Fight Night production. In Texas, they use the larger 30-foot cage. I’ve also learned the hard way to expect some dubious decisions in the Lone Star State (see Derrick Lewis vs. Ilir Latifi), so bettors beware.

This week’s fight slate is 14 fights deep. Preliminaries begin at 4 p.m. ET with the main card kicking off at 7 p.m. ET.

Last week Jake Matthews + 130 fought like a Celtic warrior and brutally finished his opponent in the first round. Matthews thrusts 2022 profitability to 13-6 for a net profit of + 6.59 units.

Calvin Kattar (-240) vs. Josh Emmett (+ 200)

Featherweight (145 pounds) Main Event

We last saw Emmett compete in December with a solid win over Dan Ige. Emmett, who is 17-2 and trains with the wrestlers at team Alpha Male, has deep wrestling roots, but he is also a power-based striker who uses hooks, crosses, elbows and uppercuts to batter opponents who stand with him. His right cross is his baby, and his baby puts fighters to sleep.

Emmett is a dynamic talent with unfortunate luck as he’s had to overcome some significant injuries. Those injuries have forced Emmett to devote time to recovery instead of development during his prime fighting years. Reservations about Emmett’s ability revolve around the inactivity, the attrition he’s endured and his age and cardio as he’s now fighting at 37.
