Josh Emmett will be welcoming former Titan Fighting Championships Featherweight Champion Desmond Green into the Octagon at UFC 210.
Emmett also thinks that when it comes to Green, the UFC debutante isn’t a fan of getting hit.
“I just think he does not like to get hit, so I’m going to stand right there in front of him, and I’ll trade shot for shot. I’m going stuff a few of his takedowns, and we’re going to get into a fight. I know it’s going to be a tough fight for me, I also know that I’m going to be one of his tougher opponents. He’s hasn’t fought anyone like me. I have great wrestling, too, so who knows. If we were to wrestle, I think I’d get the better of him, too,” Emmett said to Bloody Elbow.
The fighter also is a firm believer in Team Alpha Male, which will help him against the wrestling game from Green.
Green is a southpaw and Emmett knows this, which is why he made certain changes for this training camp.
“The only thing I changed up, when I actually do MMA sparring and boxing sparring, I’m just sparring southpaws. So a lot it, I’m just training for the southpaw. It’s going to be the first southpaw I fought, but I’ve been training with southpaws for a long time, So, that’s really the only difference," says Emmett.
UFC 210 takes place on Saturday, April 8 from the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York with Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson headlining. Fightful will be providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
