In a shocking TKO, Gaethje takes out Ferguson, become the new champ for lightweight. Thoughts?
Gaethje is the new champ
I didn't expect gaethje to win, but I don't think his take down defence will be enough to Khabib. I still think Tony would fair better against Nurmagomedov as a result of his ability to keep the fight standing. However, Gaethje out worked Tony yesterday, and was the better man overall, so he deserves the next shot at the title.
Gaethje is a hell of a worker too, even Ferguson said. Still shocked me that he won, but it wasn't unexpected
