Unbeatens Josh Emmett, Jeremy Kennedy to Clash at UFC on Fox 21

By Tristen Critchfield Jul 26, 2016
A lightweight matchup between unbeaten fighters Josh Emmett and Jeremy Kennedy has been added to the UFC on Fox 21 lineup.

Promotion officials recently announced the pairing. UFC on Fox 21 takes place at Rogers Arena in Vancouver and is headlined by a pivotal welterweight tilt between Carlos Condit and Demian Maia.

Anchored at Team Alpha Male, Emmett made his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night “Overeem vs. Arlovski” on May 8, when he earned a split-decision triumph over Jon Tuck. Emmett is 10-0 as a professional, with five triumphs inside the distance.

The 23-year-old Kennedy will bring an 8-0 mark into his first promotional foray. The Canadian was last in action on May 7, taking a three-round verdict over Drew Brokenshire at a regional event on his homesoil. He has finished three of his wins by KO/TKO and two by submission.
