Justin Gaethje wants to beat-up “Loudmouth” Kevin Lee in the face.
Former WSOF champion Justin Gaethje made his promotional debut earlier this year and has taken part in two of the great fights of 2017: this past July he won the bout against Michael Johnson via second-round TKO and last month at UFC 218 he lost the bout against Eddie Alvarez via third-round knockout.
Gaethje previously expressed his desire to shut the“loudmouths” Dustin Poirier and Kevin Lee in his (UFC) comeback fight. He recently appeared on The MMA Hour, Justin shared the backstory behind his disdain for Kevin “The Motown Phenom.” Lee and he’s already contemplating who he wants to fight next.
“We will see, but I want to beat up Kevin Lee,” Gaethje said. “That’s who I really want to beat up. I just like punching loudmouths in the face,” he said. “First and only time I met I was nice, then he started talking shit that I was fanboying over him. He doesn’t understand what showing people respect is. I will never show him respect again that’s for sure.”
Gaethje said the two first met during the UFC’s Summer Kickoff press conference in Las Vegas, Nevada where he claims that Lee looked like a ‘kung fu star.’
“I had no idea who he was. He looked like a kung fu star. I thought he was a movie star,” he said.
As both combatants are coming off losses respectively, Lee suffered a loss against Interim champion Tony Ferguson this past October.
