Just hours after a superfight was booked for the UFC 284 main event, another title fight has been added.
ESPN has Rodriguez ranked No. 4 in the world at featherweight, and Emmett is ranked No. 7.
Rodriguez (14-3, 1 NC) is coming off a victory over Brian Ortega at UFC Long Island in July. The 30-year-old Mexican-born striker has just one loss in his past five fights. Emmett (18-2) has won five straight. The 37-year-old California resident is coming off a split decision win over Calvin Kattar in June.
