Tag: Justin Gaethje

At 33, it feels like the undisputed lightweight belt might just remain a dream for Justin Gaethje – that being said, no one can deny the insanity that ensues each time Justin Gaethje decides to step inside the cage. “The Highlight” entered the UFC in 2017, with a barnstorming win over Michael Johnson, in a fight that could have gone either way.
Gaethje has key wins over Edson Barboza, Donald Cerrone, Michael Chandler, and most notably, Tony Ferguson; however, till now the Arizona native has come up short at the very pinnacle of competition – losing in championship scenarios to Khabib Nurmagomedov and Charles Oliveira. At his best, however, Justin Gaethje is ‘your favorite fighter’s favorite fighter’, as Daniel Cormier correctly coined.
