UFC Lincoln: Gaethje Drops Vick


Justin Gaethje continued to bring on highlight reel performances in his fourth UFC bout, earning his second UFC win by knocking out James Vick in the main event of UFC Lincoln.

Vick opened the round by using his kicks and working the distance well, avoiding any of Gaethje’s powerful punches initially. However, less than 90 seconds in, Gaethje followed up a left with a strong bomb of a right hand, causing the 6’3″ lightweight to collapse to the mat and giving Gaethje a knockout win.
