Ufc Apex Las Vegas, NV
Shane Burgos -135, Under 2.5 -145
With the fight here Josh Emmett is coming in as the smaller fighter. He is heading into the bout standing at 5’6” and 145 pounds. When it comes to the reach he is sitting at 70 inches so far. Those are some telling stats for the featherweight fighter, but he is also coming in with a 15-2 record.
The stance that Emmett tends to use is the orthodox style and the fighting style is going to be seen as a striker. The last 5 fights that Emmett has been involved in have almost all been KO/TKO decisions with one unanimous decision win. The 4 TKO/KO fights have seen him go 3-1.
Shane Burgos is heading into the fight here standing at 5’11 and 145 pounds. When it comes to the reach, though, Burgos has a big advantage that is standing at 75 inches and that will definitely help him out in the fight here. Burgos is coming into the fight as well with a great 13-1 record on the year.
With Burgos he has ended up fighting at great fight so far in his career and tends to use the orthodox stance, but is seen as a striker as well. The last 5 matches for Burgos has ended up being decent with a 4-1 record so far. The wins have varied from unanimous, split decisions, but also a submission win and a KO/TKO win. The loss that Burgos has is a loss by a KO/TKO loss.
For the fight here it will definitely be a back and forth battle. However, neither one of these fighters likes to go the distance that much and that will definitely make the fight go on the under 2.5 rounds total. However, what I really like about the fight is the different decisions that Burgos has been able to get pulled out. That will lead to Burgos getting the win in this fight. Fight Night Winner, Shane Burgos.
