It looks like UFC wants to bring the great headline for UFC Fight Night 135, which is set to take place on August 25, 2018, in Pinnacle Bank Arena, Lincoln, Nebraska. It will be broadcasted on Fox Sports 1. According to the report from ESPN, the potential headliner is Justin Gaethje Vs Al Iaquinta!
Justin Gaethje vs. Al Iaquinta will headline the UFC Fight Night event scheduled on Aug. 25 in Lincoln, Nebraska. UFC had this one targeted for weeks, and it’s been agreed to I’m told.

Justin Gaethje (18-2) came to the UFC from World Series Of Fighting (WSOF) last summer, and this would be his third main event of the evening. Gaethje is on a cold streak, with two losses in a row.
When it comes to Al Iaquinta (13-4-1), he is full of self-confidence after an unexpected fight in the main event of UFC 223 versus Khabib Nurmagomedov. The undefeated Dagestani was unable to knock him out, but he has stopped Al’s five winning streaks. Al Iaquinta was undefeated since May 2014.
Al is a very tough fighter, so Justin Gaethje Vs Al Iaquinta would probably be a great showdown. But… You should just check what “Raging Al” wrote on his Twitter.

The UFC Lincoln fight card is not official yet, but watching Justin Gaethje Vs Al Iaquinta in the main event of the evening would be a real deal! A featherweight showdown between Rani Yahya and Luke Sanders is also an expectation. What do you think, can this “fake news” be turned into a real one?
