Last night a new UFC lightweight contender was born in the form of Justin Gaethje.
Gaethje burst into the UFC with a knockout win over the #5 ranked Michael Johnson. In the aftermath he called out the top of the division and reminded fight fans that he’s undefeated with 19 wins and 15 knockouts to his credit.
It would seem as if this man’s on a collision course to a title shot. Something Conor McGregor was watching for, and took to twitter with his reaction.
That was a good contest. Two fighters, fighting.
