Former interim UFC lightweight champion Justin Gaethje has no doubt that his fight against Rafael Fiziev will be one of the most spectacular fights of the year.
“I am the most spectacular fighter who has ever entered the octagon in the history of this sport, and of course I am proud of it,” the American said, talking to reporters in London. “I don’t just believe it – you all believe it. You know it’s true. Even my college wrestling matches were never boring. I do not know why. From such a test I was created. This is my essence and my style – I just don’t know how to do it differently. ”
“Definitely, this guy is the best of the best, and has some crazy skills, especially if you evaluate them with an inexperienced eye. He’s an elite drummer, there’s no doubt about that. He has fast punches, but there is no heaviness in them. I’m sure I’ll have an advantage in some situations and be able to damage him in the standing position. I think I can better control the distance, space, and I’m going to put on a perfect performance this weekend.”
Recall that the lightweight fight between Justin Gaethje and Rafael Fiziev will be the second most important event of the UFC 286 tournament, which will be held on March 18 in London.
