Undefeated WOSF lightweight champion signs with UFC

Justin Gaethje has officially signed with UFC

UFC have added undefeated Justin Gaethje to their lightweight division. Gaethje announced he has now signed with UFC on his social media account earlier this week after weeks of speculation after Gaethje recently became a free agent after seeing out his contract with WSOF.

The undefeated WSOF lightweight champion, Justin Gaethje, is now part of the most stacked lightweight division in mixed martial arts.  Gaethje comes into the division with a 17-0 professional record, boasting five title defences.  He joins the likes of UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor and a whole division of title worthy talent including the likes of Tony Ferguson, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Eddie Alvarez and Nate Diaz to name but a few.

There are several interesting fights for Gaethje with lightweights outside of the top five ranked contenders.  Gilbert MelendezKevin Lee and Dustin Poirier all equally interesting debut fights for the latest addition to the 155lb division.  No date or opponent has been set for Gaethje’s debut but he hasn’t fought since December so could be looking for a return to action in the near future and he is looking for a challenge, taking to social media to state he wants the “scariest lightweight possible”.

 

Who would you like to see Gaethje matched up against in his UFC debut? Can he climb to the top of the lightweight division and become champion? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
