UFC featherweight contender Josh Emmett believes he has earned the right to challenge someone in the top three of the division.

Emmett made it two wins via knockout in a row when he finished Mirsad Bektic in the first round of their UFC Sacramento matchup this past weekend. The win was made even sweeter by the fact that he had a partisan crowd chanting for him, while he also received his first performance bonus with the promotion:

“It was a phenomenal night to be out there injury free and the way I beat such a tough prospect in Mirsad Bektic,” Emmett told Sherdog.com. “I feel like I have missed out on several of them which I should have got.

It is all going to work out in the end, and it is a little sweeter. Not only did I get a huge win in my home city, but I got a bonus. The crowd was insane, like you would have had to be there to feel the energy. The stadium was rocking.”

Emmett is now 4-1 at featherweight and holds knockout wins over names such as former title challenger Ricardo Lamas and Michael Johnson. The 34-year-old feels his latest win puts him in a position to challenge the higher-ranked fighters in the division:

“I think it lines me up to the top,” he added. “Before the fight, I wanted to focus on him because he is very good. I wasn’t overlooking him, but now with a big win it sets me up to fight someone in the Top 3 and gets me closer to the title shot.

Not just beat him but put him away in the first round. Just show what I am capable of. I’m excited about that.”
