Mirsad Bektic vs Emmett    (lost)

UFC featherweight fight

                        Mirsad Bektic (yes I add the Bosnian flag because I like the country :p)

Bektic is one of my favorite UFC fighter, a bosnian fighter, Bosnian are very good people, where I am especially in my city there is a lot of bosnian and they're very kind and good people I like them, good country too

So Bektic was a very promising prospect when he signed to the UFC maybe 3/4 years ago and he impressed me to be honest in his first UFC against Kelly he did pretty good against a tough opponent, he was pretty young and the hype started to build around him until he fought Darren Elkins.

And that fight was pretty hard for his career to be honest, he dominated the whole fight and somehow he gassed out or lost his focus during the last minutes of the fight and got clipped until now I don't really know what happened but this was the comeback of the year for me for sur. And this was his only and first lost until now.

Now he bounced back pretty good with 2 victories since then and one against a top10, Ricardo Lamas who is no joke and a very good opponent even now. By the way this ended in a split decision but this was at worst 29-28 for Bektic to be honest I don't know how one juge gave the fight for Lamas but anyway, in this fight he did pretty good but the problem is still here, he fades off with the fight is going on, I feel like Mirsad is a very good fighter for one round, maybe 2 rounds but then he fades off to much during the fight and that already cost him against Elkins.

And he can't afford doing this kind of thing against a fighter like Emmett, he has very good power in his hands especially for a featherweight (66kg/145lb), and if he is being sloppy and lose his focus in the fight with don't protecting himself he might well get clipped by Emmett like Emmett did against Johnson when he knocked him out with 2 minutes left.

Now I think Bektic will not make the same mistake twice by winning the fight and getting stopped but against Lamas he faded at the end of 2nd round and 3rd round so I think this is really the kind of fighter that he is maybe like Kevin Lee who is good for the first 2 rounds and then fades up in the later rounds, when it's a 3 round fight like this it's not very very worried but if it's a 5 round fight it's an other story. 

So that's why I hesitated a lot to bet on Bektic because Emmett is dangerous with his power, fighting at home with team alpha male in Sacramento, he also has good takedown defense which will cause some trouble to Bektic because he likes to wrestle a lot but Emmett has some decent takedown defense, and also the fact that he has been pretty inactive with fighting only once a year 

so I think that overall that's a bad match up for Bektic but I still believe that Bektic is the more well rounded and complete fighter and will find a way to win and adjust in front of a good opponent, I think Bektic is a top5 level featherweight right now and Emmett can be top5 too but I think Emmett is top10 level right now, and even though Emmett has been stopped by Stephens I still think that in this one I will be able to not being knocked out even though it can happen, so I think the most likely way that this fight ends is Bektic winning by decision
