Undefeated prospect Justin Gaethje was expected to engage in a "Fight of the Night"-type matchup with Dan Lauzon. Instead, he simply battered "The Upgrade" in impressive fashion.
As expected, Gaethje and Lauzon engaged from the opening bell, firing off power shots in flurries. Gaethje found particular success digging to the body, but Lauzon sttod firm in the pocket and returned fire. As the round wore on, Gaethje added in several snapping low kicks, wobbling Lauzon by buckling the right leg.
Gaethje's strikes left his opponent unable to stand, but he refused to follow Lauzon to the floor, instead asking him to stand and chopping away at the limb
Lauzon switched stances to open the second, and Gaethje simply turned his attention to the left leg. With Lauzon struggling to support his own weight, Gaethje blasted him with two powerful right hands that sent him toppling to the floor. One more punch on the floor ended the fight in brutal fashion.
