WBO featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson made a successful 130 pound debut against Felix Caraballo, working him down to a sixth round stoppage victory in a non title fight at the MGM Grand Conference Center on Tuesday night.

Burgos kept on absorbing shots from Emmett, while coming forward targeting his opponents injured knee. Emmett kept looking for the Knockout, landing with some serious power but Burgos kept coming forward and upped his output.

Burgos came out firing in the third just like in the first two rounds but was met with a thunderous counter left hand that sent him crashing to the canvas. Moment later, he connected another left hand that sent Burgos again to the canvas just as the first time. This time he followed up looking for the finish but Burgos was durable enough to survive to the end of the round.

Emmett had to limp out of the cage after the fight but that was all as the thrill of winning definitely overwhelmed the pain of the injury.
“I’m tired of being the gatekeeper,” Emmett said after facing an opponent behind him in the UFC rankings. “I’m not fighting anyone else behind me anymore. I want a shot at that title eventually.
