The trash-talk between Michael Johnson and Justin Gaethje leading up to Friday night’s The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale main event has been epic.
It continued with Johnson’s recent appearance on “UFC Tonight” to promote the contest. Below are highlights:
Johnson on Justin Gaethje’s smack-talk: “He just came to the UFC and he’s running his mouth. He got to me. Just shut up, prove yourself and then maybe you can start talking.”
Johnson on Gaethje’s undefeated record: “He’s 17-0 but he hasn’t fought Michael Johnson yet.”
Johnson on how he’ll beat Gaethje: “I’ll be staying true to myself. I’ll be using my movement, getting in and out, and being aggressive. He leaves so many openings. I’m going to catch him.”
