Justin Gaethje is a guy that I only vaguely remember most of the time, which is kind of sad considering some of the cool things that he’s done in MMA. The dude has some legitimate wins, like the ones over Drew Fickett, JZ Cavalacante and most recently Nick Newell. On November 15th he gets to fight Melvin Guillard, which means that he has to make some media rounds, one of which was AXS TV’s Inside MMA.
What he had to say sounded like it was right out of a 2007 message board, which really made my heart go all aflutter; he thinks that wrestlers are boring and need to knock it off. He thinks that wrestlers are ruining the sport of MMA and hilariously enough, this dude is a wrestler. But he’s a wrestler who knocks people out. Seriously, he’s 12-0 with 10 wins by KO/TKO, one win by submission and a lone decision.
This guy is awesome and we definitely salute him for his PRIDE FC mentality.
