UFC Fight Night 135 Primer: Hey, Let’s Use Up All Our Justin Gaethje At Once!

Justin Gaethje will climb into the Octagon yet again this weekend, with UFC Fight Night 135 putting him in the driver’s seat opposite James Vick.

If you’re keeping score, this will be the fourth time the former WSOF champ will make the walk to the hallowed UFC cage, and given his propensity for fighting with reckless abandon and not a single care about the damage he’s sustained – and given the ungodly amount of damage he’s sustained in his recent fights against Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier – you have think the UFC is letting this guy kill himself.

Consider this: Given the standard human brain’s capacity for absorbing trauma, there is a set amount of punishment any person can take before they become a vegetable. It would seem the UFC is keen on using up all the Justin Gaethje there is in the shortest amount of time.

Sure, Vick isn’t exactly a world-beater. But Vick is a dangerous striker, and right now, taking punches to the noggin’ is about the last thing he needs.

Anyway, here are a trio of preview vids for the fight.

UFC Fight Night 135 Primer: The Justin Gaethje Brain Damage Countdown

We knew, based on his dominant run in the World Series of Fighting, that Justin Gaethje would make a welcome addition to the Octagon.

He fights with great intensity and violence, gives his all every time, and – perhaps most importantly – is willing to take ungodly amounts of damage to win. And when he finally made his UFC debut, he certainly delivered against Michael Johnson. But then he took on Eddie Alvarez, who slaughtered him, and then Dustin Poirier, who nearly bashed his head in, and now it seems like where watching a countdown clock on Gaethje’s brain trauma.

The next UFC event on tap is UFC Fight Night 135, and Gaethje headlines against James Vick. Vick has been steadily climbing the ranks, and his height, reach and knack for hitting opponents repeatedly make him a threat to anyone. Is he at Gaethje’s level, though? Maybe, maybe not, but all that is moot if Gaethje’s noggin’ is mush…

…Which it very well could be on its way to becoming after the damage it’s taken.

Ponder this while you watch Gaethje take out Johnson.
