UFC star Josh Emmett looks unrecognisable after brutal fight as he shows wounds on Michael Bisping's podcast | The Sun
UFC featherweight Josh Emmett was left unrecognisable after his brutal win over Calvin Kattar.
The American came out on top in a gruelling five-round main event but was left battle scarred as a result.
Emmett was a guest on Michael Bisping's podcast to discuss the win and revealed his grotesquely swollen face.
He was left with two black eyes, cuts and scars but celebrated his fifth win in a row.
Emmett, 37, now wants to fight for the UFC featherweight title next.
Champion Alexander Volkanovski, 33, defends his belt in a trilogy bout against Max Holloway, 30, on July 2.

Emmett said: “I want that shot. The No. 2 and 3 guys are phenomenal fighters.
"They fought the top guys, Max Holloway and Alexander Volkanovski.
"We need some new blood in the division and I know I can compete with them.
"I’m the best featherweight on this planet, and I’m ready. I want to be sitting cageside in two weeks to see who I’m fighting next.”

He added: “It doesn’t really matter, they’re both phenomenal fighters, some of the best featherweights of all time.
“But the way I do see it though, if Volkanovski wins, he solidifies himself as the GOAT for now.
"If Max were to win, I know Volkanovski won the first one, and it was decisive, but the second one was a little controversial.
"It was super close, it could’ve gone either way."
