There’s a new name in theyou should pay a lot of attention to in the upcoming months. In the recent past few days the promotion just increased the size of their lightweight division, which is already one of UFC’s most stacked divisions.
Meet Justin Gaethje, an undefeated former World Series of Fighting 155-pound champion who previously held the belt for three years. With a perfect 17-0 record, only two wins that went into the hands of the judges, Gaethje will definitely be eyed by many top ranked UFC fighters, including true MMA fans who have been following his career for some time now.
His last 10 wins inside WSOF have been mostly by way of knockout, one submission and stoppages over dangerous foes such as Luis Palomino (twice), Nick Newell, Dan Lauzon and Gesias Cavalcante.
At the moment, the UFC has not made an official announcement yet on his promotional debut, but we expect it to come shortly.
