Video: Did UFC 286 win prove that Justin Gaethje can still become lightweight champion?

·1 min read

Heading into UFC 286, Justin Gaethje seemingly was disregarded. That much was evident by the fact that he was a more than 2-to-1 underdog against Rafael Fiziev.

Then the fight happened this past Saturday at The O2 in London, where Gaethje bloodied Fiziev en route to a majority decision victory. It was a gutsy and quality performance by Gaethje, who often disregards his ability in favor of putting on exciting fights.

And so, at 34 and with two previous failed attempts at the lightweight title, did his performance at UFC 286 prove that he still has what it takes to become 155-pound champion?

Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Mike Bohn, Farah Hannoun, and Brian “Goze” Garcia weigh in with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia. Check out their discussion in the video above, and don’t miss this week’s full episode below.
