After putting James Vick (13-2-0) to sleep in spectacular fashion at UFC Fight Night Lincoln this past weekend, a rejuvenated Justin Gaethje (19-2-0) has his pick of fighters to call out in the talent stacked UFC Lightweight division.
And it didn’t take him long.
Gaethje put number #5 ranked UFC fighter Kevin Lee (17-3) and former UFC Title challenger Al Iaquinta (13-4-1) on blast and said that he wants to fight one of them, before they set about fighting each other again. Lee and Iaquinta have somewhat of a long standing beef with Iaquinta beating Lee over 4 years ago.
Gaethje also mentioned that if neither of those fights materialize, he would want to fight Tony ‘El Cucuy’ Ferguson (25-3-0) next. Ferguson, of course, is fighting on the UFC 229 card against Anthony Pettis.
Any which way this shakes out, it’s still a very intriguing time for the Lightweight division.
