UFC fighter rankings: Josh Emmett enters title mix at featherweight

Josh Emmett’s close win over Calvin Kattar could earn him a title shot.

The UFC’s return to Texas saw some great action in the cage, and the main event produced a new featherweight contender. Josh Emmett’s slim split decision win over Calvin Kattar cemented him at the top of the 145-pound division, putting him in the top four of the class in the official UFC rankings.

Other than that though, not a lot happened rankings-wise. Adrian Yanez is now in at bantamweight after taking out Tony Kelley and making some bounty money in the process. And that’s about it.
