Something about this matchup. In Gaethje you have a closeup brawler, good wrestling, stoping power in both hands, leg kicks, elite cardio. Lesser wrestlers have gone the distance with Kabib. For some reason I see upset.
This will certainly be an interesting fight to be sure and it might reflect the matches between Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell who both had wrestling backgrounds but one used it for sprawl and brawl and the other continued using it for techncial fighting.
Well there were times that Gaethje looked like he might be close to winning but in the end he not only lost, he got submitted unconscious. However, with Khabib retiring it maybe possible for Justin to still get a shot and might in fact win the title. Only time will tell.
Yeah I honestly thought that Cannonier would win that fight but Whittaker was able to be the technical fighter that he is and defeated him. Not the most flashy match but it got the job done. Now the question is who does Israel face next cause he said that if Jared won he would get the next title shot.
