That's why he fights the way he does...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Justin Gaethje (10-0) talked about his desire to be considered one of the best lightweight fighters in the world. He recently defeated Dan Lauzon (17-5) at World Series of Fighting 6 in Florida by second round knockout. He now has nine knockouts or submissions in ten wins.
On his fighting style: "I fight the way I do because I want it to be tough for people to say that I'm not right there with the best in the world. That's what my goal has been and my plan has been the whole time – just go out there and show people I've been working my whole life toward this, and this is what I do."
On his motivation: "A fight equals a paycheck, and that's what I'm here for, and I don't care if it's for a belt or whatever. I just want to fight."
On who he would want to fight: "I'm quite convinced there is no one that's going to make me quit in the world, so I would love to fight anybody. I'm just going to keep fighting and making a mark on the sport. I think it will all come. I'm not going to rush it."
