Justin Gaethje certainly picked a perfect time for the best fight of his career, as he handed Tony Fergsuon his first loss since 2012 at UFC 249 in truly dominating fashion. Luckily, Gaethje has no hard feelings for Ferguson, as it seems like the two are are willing to meet up and smoke a blunt after the fight.
Game respect game, I guess.
Gaethje routinely places at or near the top of the list in terms of punches thrown and punch accuracy, and his aggressiveness got the better of Ferguson in this fight.
Gaethje took on one of the most violent fighters in MMA today and he came out of it with nary a scratch on his face, while Ferguson was left in a bloody heap. Gaethje has already set his sights high for his next opponent, as he wants to be the first fighter to defeat Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Gaethje has proven that he can be as difficult a fight in the lightweight division as anyone, and the interim champion should have a chance to take on Khabib soon enough.
