Justin Gaethje overturned his two-fight losing streak in stunning fashion, knocking out the rising force that is James Vick in the very first round.
Someone call Eddie Alvarez, get that violence-title, and give it back to Justin Gaethje!
‘The Highlight’ managed to add a ridiculous knockout to his reel in last night’s UFC Lincoln headliner – flattening the hotly-tipped James Vick in the first-round.
Many had written off Gaethje in the fight’s leadup and to be honest, it was understandable. He’s not exactly the most difficult fighter to read in the world. His approach is pretty one-dimensional. He puts his head down, he moves forward and then slowly breaks you down – legs, body and head.
And for some reason, that led people to already discount his chances to a certain extent.
Well, fear not, the game’s most entertaining fighter is back!
LIGHTS = OUT ?
