Popular UFC lightweight Justin Gaethje has made a name for himself by being an extremely entertaining and explosive fighter. Ever since he made his MMA debut and that too his UFC debut, in particular, Gaethje has been knocking out most of his opponents through his heavy punches and has never been engaging in wrestling even though he has a high profile NCAA Division 1 wrestling background. However, in a rather unusual case, a video has emerged on the internet from an old Gaethje fight, where he can actually be seen using his wrestling abilities to their full potential.
Gaethje last fought about two weeks ago at UFC Fight Night 158. He defeated Donald Cowboy Cerrone via TKO due to punches in the very first round of the fight.
A Twitter user by the name of ‘Shovel Hook’ posted the video of Gaethje wrestling along with the caption that it is rare footage.
