Josh Emmett vs. Shane Burgos served as the co-headliner and delivered.
The two fighters met in a featherweight bout on Saturday night (June 20, 2020) at the UFC on ESPN 11 event from Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC APEX.
As expected, these dudes came out throwing some heavy leather. While Emmett did entertain the idea of a takedown, it was a great platform for them to display their striking abilities.
Emmett dropped him in the third round and swarmed him with strikes before getting full guard. Emmett dropped him again, but Burgos showed his toughness. The judges gave the win to Emmett by decision.
