"The Irishman is retired," says Justin Gaethje when asked who he wants next, and if maybe it's Conor McGregor in his crosshairs. "I want a real fighter. I want the winner of Tony and Khabib." (The UFC has to make Ferguson vs Nurmagomedov. It just has to.)
The finish comes at 4:18 of Round 1. Justin "The Highlight" Gaethje lives up to his nickname, taking out Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone.
