Explosive featherweight contenders will clash Saturday in the main event of UFC Fight Night: Emmett vs. Topuria when recent interim title challenger Josh Emmett takes on rising prospect Ilia Topuria. Their five-round battle tops the main UFC fight card (3 p.m. ET) from VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville. The No. 5-ranked Emmett is looking to get back in the title picture after losing to top-ranked Yair Rodriguez for the interim belt in February. He faces a daunting challenge in the No. 8-ranked Topuria, who is the division’s most celebrated prospect in recent memory. Topuria has won all five of his UFC appearances, with four finishes inside of two rounds. He could be in line for his first title shot with another impressive showing Saturday.
