Justin Gaethje predicted how his fight with Michael Chandler will go at UFC 268. Gaethje believes that Michael Chandler will not be as aggressive as he claims during their lightweight bout at UFC 268. According to the” Highlight”, as soon as he starts hitting the former Bellator champion, he will try to introduce his wrestling into the game .
In the latest episode of the UFC without a filter, Justin Gaethje weighed in on how his upcoming fight with Chandler will probably go. Chandler recently said that he would come out of all guns blazing in battle, and stated that the first person to take a step back would be a ” timid soul.”
In response, Justin Gaethje said that when he starts throwing his trademark kicks, Chandler will be a timid soul and will try to shoot at his legs. Although he highly appreciates Chandler as a fighter, Gaethje believes that “Iron” is a good stylistic combination for him.
“He’s kind of proven that he belongs here. This is a huge fight, this is a dangerous fight. he’s super explosive, you know, athletic, he’s dangerous but I think it’s a great matchup for me at the end of the day. I think stylistically we see so many different types of fights, I think this is a great fight. You know he says the first one to take a step back is a timid soul. There’s not one thing he can say that can affect my approach to this fight. Where you are going to see a timid soul is when I start kicking him and he’s going to shoot for the legs, trying to wrestle and that will be his definition of a b**ch, 100%,” Justin Gaethje said.
