Khusein Askhabov vs Jamall Emmers Fight Preview
Khusein Askhabov joins the UFC roster, and gets a matchup that should raise an eyebrow or two. Emmers has three UFC fights under his belt, he is just 1-2 but the losses are understandable. One of which is a split decision against Giga Chikadze, which is a great showing for just about any featherweight fighter. That is to say there are numerous lesser opponents on the UFC roster the promotion could have matched up with Askhabov for his debut, but they aimed higher. What’s more, oddsmakers agree on some level, as Askhabov is the favorite. The thing that is keeping this line from spiking is Emmers being the known commodity With Askhaov being more of an unknown.
Askhabov has had the highest levels of Muay Thai training available. That portion of his game will likely come at some of the highest levels in the UFC. He has also trained at the PI to round out the boxing portion of his stand up. This is added to a fighter that showed he was a capable wrestler and grappler during his 23-0 bantamweight journey.
Askhabov, working at the PI will also have his body and weight in a perfect spot for his featherweight debut. We have not seen him fight for two years, but that is less of a concern than it otherwise might be with an absence. He has been training throughout, and training at all the best places to do so.
How To Bet This Fight
Emmers has had a mostly tough run of opponents, and that continues in this matchup. Emmers himself is a slick striker that also possesses a sound wrestling and grappling game. The problem for him in this matchup is he lacks an area of advantage. I believe we are going to see Askhabov incrementally better wherever this fight goes, and the fight likely goes everywhere. A finish is quite possible, but I will stop short of calling it probable. There is some value in the +225 ITD line, but take Askhabov flat at -135 to cover all methods of victory.
