Josh Emmett replaces injured Nick Hein at UFC Fight Night 87

Lightweight Josh Emmett (9-0-0) will attempt to ruffle Jon Tuck’s (9-2-0) feathers on four (4) days notice at UFC Fight Night 87 this Sunday.

Emmett, who trains with Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, last fought in the WFC, collecting a TKO win over Christos Giagos in January.

It’s an opportunity for Emmett to make an impression on the big stage but Tuck likely has other ideas.
