Justin Gaethje is all set to face James Vick in the main-event of UFC Fight Night 135. While he currently has two consecutive losses on his resume, he is looking to get back to winning ways at UFC Lincoln. In a recent interview, Gaethje talked about how his goal is to become the best fighter on the planet.
Gaethje told MMA Nytt that he will retire the day his goal is not to be the best fighter on the planet. Here’s what he had to say:
100-percent. When that’s not my goal, I will retire, I want to be the best. I want to be the best in the world. The UFC, they are the hype machine, fighting on a UFC card there is nothing like it, experience is a hell of a trait to have and now with some experience under my belt, it will do a lot of things for me.
I’m going to be more comfortable in a sense and I’m going to be more vigilant in not getting comfortable in the fight. That comes with experience so yeah, I’m excited to out there and do it again.
