Josh Emmett defeats Calvin Kattar by split decision

It was a close one! Round 1 saw an equal amount of strikes landed but Emmett certainly landed harder BUT Kattar opened a cut on Emmett. I wojld go 10-9 Emmett

Round 2, pretty much equal on strikes again, but Kattar seemed to land harder this round than the first . I would go 10-10 Very even

Round 3 Emmett pulled away, landing far more shots and landing the better shots. Easy 10-9 Emmett

Round 4- this time Kattar pulled away landing way more and seemed to hurt Emmett with a shot

Round 5- Kattar landed a lot more but it was Emmett pressing forward and maybe landing some of the harder shots. Another close round. I would lean Kattar .

I scored it a draw, but this could have went either way. One thing that stood out was that Kattar’s corner told him the truth, that the fight and rounds were too close to call going into round 5 Emmett’s corner on the other hand were assuring him he was ahead, which ended up being true but they couldn’t have known that in such a close fight.
