Can Gaethji Clip The Eagle's Wings??
Tonight see's Russian UFC superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov return to the octagon after a lengthy lay off against teak tough elite striker Justin Gaethji in what promises to be a fascinating clash of styles with the sambo wrestler Khabib starting a clear favourite.
Gaethji, interestingly, has only spent 17 seconds on his back in his entire ufc career to date although the chances are that could well change tonight with Khabib. Who is relentless in his pursuit of take downs and is most likely the most dominant ground fighter in ufc history.
Justin is however a real cardio machine who boasts the highest strike ratio in ufc history. But, can he solve the Khabib puzzle that no one has so far in the Russians incredible run to 28-0....Justin's defensive wrestling can easily be overlooked so for me this will be the Eagle Khabibs toughest test to date. I personally can not wait to see how this fight develops and will put myself out there now and say the violent striking of Justin to cause a huge upset. Saying that with confidence however is another thing all together... ENJOY FIGHT FANS
