Watch Josh Emmett knock Mirsad Bektic out at UFC Fight Night Sacramento

By Dalton Johnson

Sacramento, stand up. 


One fight before Urijah Faber came out of retirement at UFC Fight Night Sacramento, fellow Team Alpha Male fighter Josh Emmett (15-2-0) entered the octagon for his featherweight match against Mirsad Bektic (13-2-0). Emmett earned a rousing ovation from the home crowd at Golden 1 Center and instantly proved he deserved their admiration. 


The 34-year-old who wrestled locally at Menlo College, knocked Bektic out in the final minute of the first round. 

Emmett caught Bektic with a right jab that knocked him to straight to the mat. And then, the veteran landed a flurry of punches on the ground to quickly end the match. 

"The California Kid" was loving every second of his teammate's victory, too. 

It was a great night for Team Alpha Male. Faber's win was icing on the cake.
