30-year-old American fighter, professional record 17-4, training in the hall “Pinnacle MMA”. Jamal played in various secondary promotions for a long time, such as GKO, LFA, FFC, tried to get into the UFC in 2018, but the attempt was unsuccessful and Emmers lost by knockout in the second round to Julian Erosa.
The fighter did not give up and continued to earn victories and finally needed a replacement on short notice and the UFC gladly signed the American prospectus. Emmers is a comprehensively developed fighter, he is mobile in the stance, penetrates low kicks well, fights well and switches to painful/suffocating techniques.
A fighter from Georgia, he is 31 years old, a professional record of 8-2. Giga, just like Jamall tried to get into the UFC through the Dana White’s Contender Series, but the attempt was unsuccessful, and Chikadze lost by a choke in 3 rounds.
Giga is a pronounced drummer with not bad dimensions, has a weak level of opposition and there are problems in the struggle, although he is trying to pull up this aspect. Still, Chikadze signed in the UFC and he even managed to win Brandon Davis in the debut by a decision of the judges.
Jamall Emmers vs Giga Chikadze Prediction
Jamal Emmers is a cut above skills than Giga Chikadze. Yes, in the rack, Chikadze has a chance to shock Emmers, but that’s probably all. I believe that the American will use his footwork, combine striking techniques and wrestling and ultimately win this confrontation.
- Our prediction: Jamall Emmers Will Win.
