Justin Gaethje on UFC 300 fight against Max Holloway: 'I'll do damage where the doctors have to stop it'


Justin Gaethje predicts doctors will TKO Max Holloway at UFC 300.

BMF champion Gaethje (25-4 MMA, 8-4 UFC) defends his belt against Holloway (25-7 MMA, 21-7 UFC) on April 13 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Former UFC featherweight champion Holloway has never been knocked out in 32 professional fights, but Gaethje is confident he can deliver a different kind of violence that “Blessed” hasn’t experienced.

“Nobody steals the show like 'The Highlight,'” Gaethje said in a promotional video for UFC 300. “Carnage, chaos, probably some blood and adrenaline coursing through your veins – that's what you're going to get from me . “My ability to do damage is unmatched.”

Gaethje was the first to stop Tony Ferguson with punches and he plans to do the same with Holloway – but he expects a slightly different finish.

“Max Holloway is a legend – probably the only person on the UFC roster right now who ticks every single box when it comes to being a BMF – so I have a lot of respect for him,” Gaethje said. “But that’s my job and I’m going to try to finish it.

“I'm going to finish Max. He may not fall asleep in the traditional way, but I think I'll do some damage where the doctors need to stop him. We’re about to paint a violent picture and there aren’t two better people to go out there and put on a show.”
