Emmett vs Topuria Odds & Prediction

Saturday’s alright for fighting as the main event could provide some early fireworks.

At 38 American Josh Emmett is just entering the end of his prime. But his blistering power and strong wrestling base make him a menace in the Octagon. Emmett’s only losses in the past five years are to stalwarts Jeremy Stephens and Yair Rodriguez. That being said, a stern test awaits the Sacramento based fighter this weekend.

Georgian fighter Ilia Topuria will line up across from Emmett in the main event of the evening.  An unbeaten rising star with a dazzling mix of striking and grappling, Topuria has already turned heads with his dominant performances against the likes of Bryce Mitchell and Jai Herbert.

While Emmett’s power and wrestling pose a stern test for the up-and-comer, Topuria is one of the best grapplers in all of MMA. He’s a well rounded ascending talent poised to make his mark on the UFC’s featherweight division on Saturday night.

UFC Fight Night: Emmett vs Topuria Pick: Ilia Topuria by KO (+165), Ilia Topuria by KO or Submission (-250)

Ribas vs Barber Odds & Prediction

The co-main event unleashes a flyweight flurry as Amanda Ribas squares off against Maycee Barber in a high-stakes clash.

Ribas is a dynamic fighter with a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and a knack for opportune striking. She’s beaten the likes of Paige VanZant and Mackenzie Dern in her career and will look to continue her winning days at UFC Fight Night: Emmett vs Topuria.

Her opponent, Maycee Barber, is a powerhouse with knockout power and relentless aggression. With five career knockouts, Barber is always on the hunt for a finish. Barber has won four straight fights entering this weekend.

Barber is a live dog in this one, take her to win the fight, and the over 2.5 rounds total with confidence.

Ribas vs Barber Picks: Maycee Barber to win (+165), Over 2.5 total rounds (-215)

Other UFC Fight Night Emmett vs Topuria Picks:

  • Austen Lane to win (+150)
  • Neil Magny to win (-165)
