Emmers vs Askhabov Prediction

MMA enthusiasts are excited as the undefeated Khusein Askhabov is set to make his UFC debut. The Russian fighter defeated the first 23 opponents he's gone up against and has finished off each of the last four before the end of the second round, winning three times by submission and once by knockout.

Standing in Askhabov's way of continuing perfection is Jamall Emmers, who's in a bit of a rut. The 33-year-old veteran has dropped two of his last three fights, most recently submitted to Pat Sabatini at UFC Vegas 35. That loss came about 18 months ago, making it interesting to see how (and if) Emmers rebounds.

After Emmers struggled to beat a submission specialist like Sabatini, I expect a similar struggle in the coming days. Ten of Askhabov's 23 all-time victories have come by submission — the most of any method. He'll be hungry to make an impact in his UFC debut, resulting in a quick dismantling of his opponent.

Winner: Khusein Askhabov
