Gaethje’s road towards the clash with Islam Makhachev

A hilarious tweet displaying the exact reaction of Gaethje’s fight with Islam, which is going to be very similar to what Justin had faced before. Islam and Khabib have this beautiful mentor-mentee relationship which also translates to the style of their ‘Sambo‘ and its modification tailored to MMA, a lot of similarities in style appear between the two Dagestanis.

People argue over how Islam hasn’t beat anyone from the top 5, the other lot say that everyone else in the division has avoided him, which seems to be the case. Will Justin and Islam lock horns after Islam’s title shot and could maybe be Islam’s first Title defense? That seems more likely to be the case.
