The former interim UFC Lightweight champion, Justin Gaethje is rumored to face the former two times Bellator Lightweight champion and UFC title contender, Michael Chandler in the co-main event of UFC 268.
Gaethje and Poirier are frequently going back and forth against each other on social media and both of them recently dropped heavy bombs on each other. Along with this the UFC Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira is being targeted to face Dustin Poirier for his first title defense towards the end of this year.
In his latest tweet, Justin Gaethje predicted that Poirier is going to beat Oliveira in the title fight and after that, he is going to win the title by avenging his loss in 2018 and wrapping the UFC Lightweight title around his waist.
Gaethje says, “Dustin Poirier will KO Charles Oliveira in December. After I break Michael Chandler on Nov 6th at any venue on the planet, I will get my rematch and you will see a replay of the best fight that happened on earth in 2018. That’s a year to look forward to.”
Michael Chandler immediately replied to Justin Gaethje
After Justin Gaethje issued a warning to Michael Chandler, it didn’t take him much time to respond to his warning. In the same tweet, Chandler replied, “Good Luck Bud #unbreakable”.
This is almost similar warning that Dan Hooker issued to Chandler before his UFC debut at UFC 257, Hooker said, “I’m about to break this new toy real soon” and we all witnessed what happened in their fight.
This fight between Chandler and Gaethje has Fight of the Year contender written all over it, the only concern is that ‘Iron Mike’ doesn’t want this card to take place in Las Vegas because he isn’t vaccinated and LA is putting restrictions regarding COVID vaccinations recently.
It is going to be interested to see what place this card is going to take place and whose hand will be raised after these two hardest hitters of the division will enter the Octagon against each other at UFC 268.
