    Gaithje has proven tdd...from what I have seen in his fights..given also he was a college wrestler...and he's a very good wrestler, who just chooses to stand and bang.

    Wow that fight would be some just bleed madness. For Gaethje's sake though, I really hope he doesn't try to trade leg kicks with Barboza. He won't be able to walk the same way ever again after the fight.

    I think Gaethje is gonna be too slow and willing to get hit. Edson is a dangerous guy to try to stand and bang with. I'm Edson gets a TKO via knees due to JG's lazy clinch game

    But maybe try something different? I don't know what's goin on and why he isn't booked, he fought 6 months ago. Geathje vs Vick did poor tv ratings, then maybe UFC don't see him as something attractive for viewers? Remember they started new deal with ESPN, Justin made poor ratings vs Vick, and only Vick was trying to sell fight...He also fought 4 fights in UFC, was his contract renewed? Maybe he is just waiting for some good oponnent to ask for better money, it's reasonable, but imo he is wasting his time and Barboza fought not that long ago, really doubt he will be able to fight around March...I understand that fighters want more exciting oponnents, so you know bonuses are more possible.
    It's really weird that he is not booked.

    Lots of fighters get paid this way. 100% show money, no win bonus. Maybe you have CTE. It’s most common in championship fights, but it’s been a theme at HW for years, regardless of the fighters championship standings.

    Barboza should be next for him that's the fight makes sense & Gaethje shouldn't bitch about rankings, it's not like he beat anyone to deserve it.

    Styles make fights and this is easy work for Edson..... even not so great version of Edson and last win for Barboza didn't too much for him except some much needed confidence.
