For God's sake give Justin an easier fight. At this rate he will retire by next year with the style of his and the hard hitters they keep throwing at him. He already said before this was signed he had 5 fights left but by fight 3 he will already have a Liddell chin.

Yea sorry Skelliher but this is a terrible fight for both guys right now. Neither need another L. 

Justin G vs Dunham, Trinaldo or Dariush makes a lot of sense. 


Iaquinta vs Showtime or something.

Maybe they're trying to force Gaethje to go back to his wrestling roots lol. But yea, this fight is sad for Gaethje unless he can really work his takedowns in there and/or do enough damage with his leg kicks early to get Al's respect.

This is a very Winnable fight for Gaethje. He lost to Alvarez and Poirier but Al is a step down from them both.

That and Ragin' Al is clearly suffering from bipolar disorder. I doubt Al can deduce anything intelligent after that beating Khabib gave em.

If Gaethje fought smarter he could've won his last two, his wrestling is so good but unused.

Pretty 50/50 fight, riding with Gay-gee!!!

@mikeyg

Yep. It seems almost a waste that he has spent a lifetime working on that particular area only to use it in reverse. Imo, if he were to use his grappling early in his fights heavy, then his pressure style would amplified. Imagine spending 5 minutes straight trying to stand up while an All American wrestler is raining down g-n-p. Then the next round all you're thinking about is not getting taken down, and he starts walking you down and just kicking your leg and landing bombs. I can't say for certain because I have never had a pro fight, but that seems to me to be a recipe for a future champion.

I agree that his background + style + chin equal champion material, just needs that higher IQ.

Prediction: Gaethje  |  KO/TKO  |  Round 5

I think he might b catching on after the tough loss to poirer. Think we c a new gaithje against al and he pulls out a late ko. Excited to hopefully c his wrestling in action.
