Former World Series of Fighting (RIP) champion Justin Gaethje is a straight up wild man. “The Highlight” has brought his “kill or be killed” style to the UFC for three Fight of the Year worthy bouts thus far.
An outsider may judge Gaethje as a basic swinging brawler, at a quick glance. But the former Division 1 All-American assaults with a purpose, breaking his opponent over time with his brutal pace and chopping low kicks.
Gaethje’s style works best when the other man is standing in front of him, open to exchange. Exhausted and stuck in place, that’s when you’re vulnerable to his most powerful shots.
Low kicking is an art form in itself, there are risks and rewards for every attempt. Gaethje does well to disguise his setups with hip and shoulder movement. Because he throws wide and looping strikes, it’s difficult to distinguish the beginning of a punch from a kick.
Feast your eyes on Gaethje’s finest lumberjacking. #StayChoppin
