Gaethje Eats Massive Head Kick While Training For Khabib
Justin Gaethje is not human. The Lightweight title contender is currently training for his fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov, and from the looks of it he is taking every shot like its just another day in the park. Gaethje (who is current on a 4-fight KO streak) has a very impressive chin, but this is just on another level. There are very few fighters on the roster that can take a head kick like this, and yet Gaethje eats it like its nothing.
Gaethje has made solid improvements over his last four fights. He no longer just covers his head and takes shots. He’s strategic with his movement and thanks to his head coach Trevor Whitman has drastically improved his striking game. Gaethje will get his shot at the UFC LW title on October 25th at UFC 254 against Khabib Nurmagomedov. Normally I’d be worried after seeing footage like this, but Gaethje is a monster. It will be very interesting to see how things turn out at UFC 254.
