Justin Gaethje Mentally Prepares for Nurmagomedov

The battle between UFCs highest-ranked lightweight contenders is heating up, with their fight slated to arrive by October 24th. Dedicated support of the Ultimate Fighting Championship has craved the return of Khabib Nurmagomedov, a Middle Eastern & Russian competitor that has dominated regularly over his competition. No UFC fighter has defeated Khabib, not even Conor McGregor. That zero-loss record for Nurmagomedov could end after battling against Justin Gaethje, one of the speediest fighters that the UFC has ever crossed.

Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov has begun engaging with her standard mental warfare, informing Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje that he’ll take the American into the deepest of oceans & drown him in-front of millions. Considering Justin Gaethje destroyed Tony Ferguson at his last UFC appearance, the long-time rival of Khabib, the Interim Lightweight Champion wasn’t deterred by Nurmagomedov. Warnings were issued back towards Khabib from the Gaethje camp, with Highlight informing the Eagle that it’ll be all-out carnage at UFC 254.

Justin Gaethje spoke with ESPN via videoconference on August 12th, where he’d emphasize that there’ll be a zone of death before him & that it won’t be Khabib Nurmagomedov that represents the Grim Reaper. Gaethje noted that it’s him who represents death, represents carnage, and creates horrific accidents in the octagon. Few fighters reach these levels in their retaliation, suggesting that Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje is looking to induce more damage to Khabib than any of his former opponents.

Who Will Win?

Justin Gaethje has stood on a formidable winning streak, defeating multiple opponents that were expected to dominate over the Highlight. When Justin dominated over Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 & became the Lightweight Interim Champion, his next goal was immediately acquiring the full championship from Khabib Nurmagomedov. Dana White would allow Gaethje the right to compete for six-months later against the Eagle.

Khabib fight with ferocity & anger after losing his father to the novel coronavirus. Competing against Justin Gaethje will mark one of Khabib’s final fights, with Nurmagomedov expected to retire by 2022. Justin is competing with young talent & faster speed than the “Aging Eagle”, which will be harder for Khabib to contend against after a prolonged vacation from fighting. Justin is active in the UFC, with Nurmagomedov having disappeared since COVID-19 arrived.
