Fan favorite Justin Gaethje is set to take the skilled striking of Rafael Fiziev in a highly-anticipated co-main event at UFC 286 in London.
Gaethje is known for his thrilling fights and is determined to provide another memorable performance for his fans. Despite suffering two unsuccessful attempts to win the lightweight championship, Gaethje remains one of the most exciting fighters in the sport and has received the “Fight of the Night” award six times in his UFC career.
In a recent media appearance, Gaethje confidently declared himself as the “most exciting fighter in the world” and expressed his focus on putting on a show for the fans at UFC 286, regardless of the fact that it’s a non-title fight. This is a must-see fight for all MMA fans, and Gaethje’s performance is sure to leave the audience on the edge of their seats.
“Oh yeah of course, I mean I’m gonna blow the roof off this arena,” Gaethje answered. “I’m the most exciting fighter that has ever stepped in the Octagon, in the history of this sport. And of course I pride myself on that…I don’t disbelieve it, you believe it, you all believe it. You know it to be true, it’s not on purpose. It’s just who I am, it’s how I compete. I’m cut from this cloth, as they say.”
At UFC 249, Justin Gaethje put an end to his four-fight knockout drought by defeating Tony Ferguson and claiming the interim lightweight championship. However, his recent record has been less impressive, even though they were all exciting bouts, he has only achieved one win in his last three.
Nonetheless, fans are eager to see Gaethje go up against #6-ranked Rafael Fiziev, another fighter known for his exciting finishes, in what promises to be a Fight of the Night-worthy co-main event at UFC 286.
