Heading into this contest, it is expected that Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson will do nothing less than throw bombs at each other. Tony’s confidence is higher than it has ever been, and the same can be said for Justin. In fact, speaking in the UFC Countdown show, he showed some respect to his opponent, before calling his shot on how the fight ends.
“Tony Ferguson is a great competitor, 12 wins in a row, but I knock him out cold.”
This would not be the first time Justin Gaethje has knocked an opponent out cold. Typically his fights only go two ways: quick knockouts or long, grueling wars. It is safe to say he expects the same thing in this contest.
“I’m going to fight until I’m finished or until Tony’s finished,” Justin said. “That’s what I do and that’s what I’ve always done. I possess the power to turn his lights off and I believe I will.”
It is safe to say Justin Gaethje is prepared to make the most of his opportunity when he fights Tony Ferguson. The two face off in the main event of UFC 249, this weekend, live on PPV.
