Justin Gaethje, Michael Chandler Bury The Hatchets In Hospital
Fans are gushing over a picture of Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler after their fight at UFC 268.
The two could be seen burying the hatchet in the hospital after putting up the fight of the year.
The Highlight clinched the win via unanimous decision. Both men were immediately moved to the hospital in ambulances to receive first aid.
Both men were awarded $50k in Performance Of the Night bonus.
“All glory to God,” Gaethje wrote in his Instagram post. “I wasn’t leaving tonight without my chance to put another strap on [coach] Trevor Wittman’s wall.”

Gaethje is now one step closer to taking on the lightweight champion.
He has been disappointed in the UFC’s decision to grant Chandler the title shot against Charles Oliviera, which the newcomer went on to lose.
Gaethje felt that being given a title shot over fighters, who have been part of the company for far longer than Chandler, was unfair to him and other lightweights.
He is likely to take on the winner of Oliviera vs Dustin Poirier that is scheduled for UFC 269.
As for Chandler, he has shown that he belongs at the very top after his bloodied battle against Gaethje.
While leaving the octagon after the fight, he looked over to spectators and commentators and shouted: “Are you not entertained?”
