Bektic last fought at UFC 225, where he beat Ricardo
Lamas by decision. He was then expected to take on Renato
Carneiro at UFC 231 but had to withdraw due to an undisclosed
injury. The Bosnian fighter is currently on the bubble in Sherdog’s
official mixed martial arts rankings.
Emmett, meanwhile, returned the Octagon at UFC Philadelphia and
knocked out Michael
Johnson to get back into the win column. Before the win, Emmett
lost by knockout to Jeremy
Stephens and was out of action for 13 months. Like Bektic, he
too has a win over Lamas, but he knocked “The Bully” out in the
first round. The 34-year-old is also on the bubble in Sherdog’s
rankings for the featherweight division.
UFC Sacramento goes down on July 13 and currently, no headliner
has been announced for the ESPN+ card.
