Gaethje: I can’t go to bed every night thinking about the damage

Justin Gaethje accepted intense punishment in going 17-0 prior to his entry into the UFC. Each fight he made a bet that he could take more punishment that his opponent and each time he was right. In his first UFC fight, the pattern continued.

Then it didn’t. The UFC is a different animal than anywhere else in the sport. Gaethje is now 0-2 his last two, and had taken even more punishment than usual – more than he could take. During a recent appearance on Ariel Helwani’s The MMA Hour, Gaethje reflected on his style of fighting, and that at 29, he can see the end of his career in sight.
