Justin Gaethje and Michael Johnson talked a lot of trash leading up to their TUF 25 Finale last Friday, but following their ‘fight of the year’ contender, the latter has nothing but praise for the lightweight.
Johnson had Gaethje in trouble a couple of times during their epic war, but “The Highlight” kept coming and finished “The Menace” in round two. Gaethje was making his Octagon debut in the bout.
Recently Johnson posted the comments below regarding the thrilling fight, and he praised Gaethje while doing so.
Thank you my team everyone for the support and congrats to @justin_gaethje that fight will be hard to top by anyone in this division!# #warrior regardless of what was said we stood in toe to toe and did what very few can do! #respect I was hurt but never out of it!!
