Justin Gaethje wants a temporary lightweight championship belt. It was shown by Gaethje who was reluctant to linger with the procession of embedding the championship belt by UFC President Dana White before finally being released.
Gaethje appeared in a battle at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena, Florida, Sunday (10/5), as a substitute fighter. In fact, Ferguson was plotted against Khabib Nurmagomedov. Unfortunately, the meeting of Khabib vs Ferguson failed to be held for various reasons.
In the duel without the audience, Gaethje was able to show his best actions. The opportunity to prove himself as a serious challenger to Khabib was shown in the third round. In the third minute and 39 seconds, Gaethje managed to knock out Ferguson.
The victory gave Gaethje the right to a temporary UFC light class title. But after the fight, Gaethje removed the belt after being paired by UFC president Dana White. ‘I will wait for the real one,’ Gaethje was quoted as saying by ESPN.
Gaethje is a fighter who has a great chance to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov. He was ready to take the challenge. ‘I have been working since I was four for challenges like this. I am happy to represent the United States,’ he concluded.
