After seeing a medical professional yesterday, UFC fighter Josh Emmett has revealed that he indeed has a complete tear of his ACL, Partial tear of his MCL, and injuries to a few other areas. Tough break for a guy who was arguably in one of this years best fights. It’s never a good time to be injured but for Emmett this was horrible timing as he was likely moving into the top 5 in his weight class.
Recently he and Shane Burgos stole the show with their fight and earned Fight of the Night honors. And considering Josh hurt his knee in Round 1, I’m very impressed with how he kept his juices going for the rest of the fight with out letting the pain get to him. I hope he comes back healthy and continues this streak when he returns.
It was just a great effort by him on Saturday.
