Justin Gaethje plans to ’cause damage’, stay away from Khabib Nurmagomedov: ‘If I don’t, then I’m screwed’


Justin Gaethje knows the challenge ahead, but believes he can be the only one in 28-1 against Khabib Nurmagomedov this weekend.

The highly anticipated battle for the undisputed lightweight title takes place during the main event of Saturday’s UFC 254 event on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. Nurmagomedov overcame every opponent in front of him, mostly with relative ease thanks to his wrestling and wrestling pedigree.

“The Highlight” knows that could be a possibility in the Octagon on Saturday night. In a way, he is prepared for this outcome.

“I expect him to think that’s going to happen,” Gaethje told reporters at UFC 254 press conference on Wednesday. “I told myself this was going to happen and it motivates me every day. I’m an artist. I always show up under the lights and have been doing this for as long as him. This is ingrained in us. Saturday night, I will quit everything, give everything and be proud of my performance.
