Justin Gaethje is awaiting to pounce on the right opportunity as the upper administration of the UFC lightweight sort their issues. Ali Abdelaziz, his manager stated that the negotiations are still hopeful and they haven’t hit a wall.
Ali said, “I don’t think it’s business (issues) right now. I think I just have to get the right fight. I see a lot of people calling him out. You can’t just be away from the lightweight division for six years and come back and try to fight the No. 2 guy. You have to earn it.”
In spite of making Justin Gaethje VS Michael Chandler a reality for UFC 262, UFC set Michael up with Charles Oliveria. Despite this, Ali believes that Gaethje is the best active lightweight at the moment.
Abdelaziz furthers clarified that he understands why UFC changed the lineup. He said, “We found out Chandler (was) fighting Oliveira, and I get it. The UFC wants a champion who never lost to Khabib. If a guy who lost to Khabib becomes the champion, you need more time to make people forget about Khabib, right? They made the move, and I get it.”
Justin Gaethje awaits the right opponent
Gaethje, 32, as of late contended in a title challenge against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 252 in September. The match finished in Round 2. Nonetheless preceding the misfortune, Gaethje won four straight battles against James Vick, Edson Barboza, Donald Cerrone, and Tony Ferguson on the way to his title shot. Every one of the five of Gaethje’s special triumphs has been finishes.
There are a lot of potential opponents for Justin Gaethje. Ali stated that few big names also came up. Abdelaziz said, “It was never 100 percent he was fighting Mike Chandler, but it was mentioned. “It was mentioned McGregor, too. I truly believe Justin Gaethje will be the UFC champion.”
Regardless of who Justin Gaethje faces next, Ali feels that Gaethje would triumph over every single one of his opponents. However, only time will tell who’s the best lightweight in UFC.
