Undefeated lightweight Josh Emmett stepped in on short notice at UFC Fight Night 87 in Rotterdam on Sunday and captured a win over Jon Tuck.
During the final round of the fight, Emmet suffered a compound fracture to his left hand. Following the win in his UFC debut, Emmet showed off the gruesome injury.
“I feel great besides the third round when he caught me on the hand with the kick. I felt good in the first and second rounds. It was just that one moment in the third and from then I had to fight with one hand,” Emmet said after the win.
“I’m excited to be here though and I really enjoyed the fight. I took this fight on four days notice so just wait until I get a full camp, then you will see what I can do.”
