Justin Gaethje has a lot of pent up anger, and he’s looking to unleash it on Edson Barboza.
“I’m f—ing pissed, man,” Gaethje said. “I’m pissed about a lot of things. I’ve been involved in Fight of the Year the last two years, and that’s all f—ing cool and it sounds good to fans, but I don’t get a damn thing for that.
”It’s bulls—. NFL players get bonuses for sacks, completions, rushing yards, whatever. I go out and put it on the line like I do, and I pretty much get s— on.”
“Barboza is up there,” he said. “He’s a scary fighter, but I like being scared. And that’s a fight that me, as a fan, would want to see. I know how much fans would love something like that. So I’ll go out there and try to finish that dude with leg kicks.
”I’m trying to create a legacy, and you don’t create a legacy by bitching. I’ll fight the next in line. Whoever they send me a contract for, I’ll fight him.”
“If I have to go out and f— up Barboza, I’ll do it,” Gaethje said. “And one day, I’m either going to make Al quit or he’s going to have to fight me. That m—–f—– has to fight me at some point.”
