Representing the elevation fight team, the 32-year-old professional mixed martial artist, Justin Gaethje showed a glimpse of his journey in UFC. He spoke about his experience, sparring sessions and how the rise of ‘The Highlight’ began.
The experienced MMA fighter talked about the dedication and enthusiasm he has for the fight game. Since his childhood, at the early age of 13, the lad had immense interest and followed the UFC promoter, Dana White.
‘The Highlight’ said, “All I know is since I was 12-13 years old, I listened to Dana White, do his interviews and explain what he wanted in a fighter and I’m that motherfu***ker. And you know if I get disrespected, it’s gonna be hurtful because you know I really bought into what that man talked about.
Justin Gaethje is undoubtedly an excellent fighter. The American fighter holds an impressive score of 30-13-0 shall be an edifice of his expertise in the Lightweight division. The fighter has proved to be an asset for the company and he is here to stay.
The Highlight had earlier mentioned that he would like to avoid fighting elsewhere and would also like to avoid leaving the UFC. The American stands up to his principles, as he very well knows the merits of staying in the game.
Will Justin Gaethje fight Islam next?
Even though Gaethje’s last performance against Khabib Nurmagomedov was quite impressive, it was not up to the mark. Gaethje lost the battle in the second round, submitting to ‘The Eagle’.
However, since then, Justin looks forward to making a successful return to the fight game. Rumors float around that Gaethje is locking horns against the Russian, Islam Makhachev for his next bout.
The bout between Islam and Justin might take place soon. Gaethje is currently the second-ranked lightweight, but the fighter has found himself on the outside looking in of the title conversation. Furthermore, Gaethje requires at least one win to get himself back for the title shot. Perhaps possibilities breathe as Makhachev could make a huge jump up the rankings.
Considering this, it will be a gigantic moment for the UFC fans, where they get to see Justin Gaethje taking out the revenge of his previous bout against Islam Makhachev, a childhood friend of Khabib Nurmagomedov.
