    Gaethje goes in detail about Al Iaquinta, the fight he really wants and how he's frustrated over the fact that Al Iaquinta is ranked above him after pulling out of their previously scheduled bout.

    Gaethje attempted to restructure his deal so his entire purse each fight is fully guaranteed but that didn't work out in his favor but nevertheless, he's fighting on.

    Can't wait to see when this Barboza fight gets announced.

    A direct quote from the article Gaethje says he's going to aim to finish Barboza with leg kicks. I got hard.

    He and Cucuy are the two most entertaining fighters in the UFC today. That Barboza fight = 100%

    Of course Dana manages to even piss off Justin. Give him his money up front and let him deliver violence to appease the JBG. War Justin.

    I mean, you look at the top 7-8 guys at 155 and there aren't many wrestlers. He's been lobbying for a Kevin Lee fight for awhile now, one of the best grapplers in the division.

    I'll say the same thing DC said on commentary when Dan Hooker started trading leg kicks with Edson Barboza. "Having a leg kick war with Edson Barboza is a BAD idea." There are a lot of ways to beat Edson Barboza, having a leg kick war with him is not one of them. Edson will break the shit out of Gaethje if he tries it.

    Gaethje vs Iaquinta would have been a better fight IMO. But Barboza's awesome too.

    Wait, do you really think Justin is afraid of wrestlers? His style is built to kill wrestle boxers.

    Edson can't deal with pressure fighters, add viscous leg kicks to that relentless pressure.

    Imo he should take one more lower ranked oponnent, he got two chances vs top 5 and was finished.
