Team Alpha Male fighter Josh Emmett scored a huge victory at UFC on ESPN 2 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday, March 30 after nearly a year out of action. Emmett was facing fellow featherweight Michael Johnson on the main card.
With time winding down in the third round, it appeared that Johnson was set to pick up another victory as he continues to climb the featherweight ranks, but Emmett had other plans.
Emmett uncorked a vicious right hand that immediately stiffened Johnson. Johnson then collapsed to the mat before the referee jumped in to save the day.
Here is video of the brutal knockout.
