Could miss six months
February 23, 2021
Emmers was handed a six-month medical suspension Tuesday due to his back injury, MMAFighting.com reports.
Emmers suffered what was initially referred to as back spasms immediately prior to his scheduled fight against Chas Skelly on Saturday, forcing a last-minute withdrawal. He'll receive an MRI on his lumbar and won't fight again until Aug. 20 unless cleared by an orthopedic doctor or spine specialist.
Does not make walk to fight
February 20, 2021
The fight between Emmers and Chas Skelly has been cancelled due to an Emmers medical issue (back spasms) at UFC Vegas 19 on Saturday in Las Vegas, Marc Raimondi of ESPN.com reports.
Skelly was waiting for Jamall Emmers to make his walk to the Octagon, but Emmers didn't make it. It was one of the latest cancellations in UFC history, representing an incredibly tough break for fantasy players who rostered either fighter.
Draws Skelly in February
January 5, 2021
Emmers has agreed to take on Chas Skelly in a featherweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for Feb. 20, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
Emmers last took the cage in August to pick up his first UFC win, defeating Vince Cachero via unanimous decision and racking up 103 significant strikes along the way. He'll now set his sights on Skelly, a fighter with significantly more UFC experience, but also one that hasn't competed since September of 2019. Emmers will enter with a two-inch reach advantage but will give up an inch in height to Skelly. After picking up a combined seven takedowns in his last two fights, he'll likely look to exploit the 33 percent takedown defense of his opponent.
Wins decision as heavy favorite
August 1, 2020
Emmers defeated Vincent Cachero via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC on ESPN+ 31 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Emmers ate a couple shots at a distance early, but he excelled in the clinch, scoring the most damaging shots of the round to the body of Cachero. After some time off in the halfway point of the first due to a groin shot, Emmers continued to land with powerful shots that included a straight right hand and several additional knees. He finished the round with a takedown to presumably secure it in the eyes of the judges. While Cachero appeared game early in the second, Emmers quickly ended that with an uppercut and several additional power shots. Emmers took Cachero to that mat two minutes in and poured on some ground-and-pound, but Cachero got back to his feet. It was more of the same on the feet, and once again, Emmers finished the round with a takedown. In Round 3, the Emmers used his significantly-larger frame to his advantage, securing another takedown early and attempting a kimura. Cachero got back to his feet, but it didn't last particularly long, with Emmers collecting another takedown with just over a minute remaining. He got to the back of Cachero and threatened with a choke, but ultimately ran out of time. It was a convincing performance from the (-525) betting favorite, even though Emmers was unable to get the finish.
Could fight Saturday after all
July 31, 2020
Emmers is in line to take on Vincent Cachero as a late notice-replacement for Timur Valiev (undisclosed) at UFC Vegas 5 on Saturday, Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com reports.
Emmers will have to deal with a late opponent change, but he'll hold a decent size advantage over Cachero, who competes primarily at bantamweight. Cachero has also lost two of his last three fights under the banner of LFA. Emmers had originally been a (+145) betting underdog for the Valiev matchup, but there's a strong chance he enters as the favorite when sportsbooks catch up to this announcement.
