Justin Gaethje skulle vilja möta Brian Foster i december

Justin Gaethje (15-0) försvarade sin lättviktstitel mot Luis Palomino (23-11) på WSoF 23 och hoppas kunna försvara sin titel snart igen.

Gaethje var otroligt glad efter vinsten och känner sig redo att ta sig an vem som helst, oavsett vilken ranking den fightern har.

“I feel like I’m on top of the world. I gotta be honest with you,” Gaethje för MMAFighting.com. “I don’t remember much of the fight, just like every fight I’ve been in.

“It’s in the moment, and if I take the time to watch what’s going on, my reactions are going to be a little late. I can’t process all of that. It’s all feeling and reaction. I’ve trained my whole life. Since I was four years old, I’ve trained to do this, and I’m ready. I’m as ready as anybody will ever be. You step in the cage with me, I don’t care if you’re No. 1 or No. 10 in the world, you will have a fight on your hands.”

Gaethje känner att han har utvecklats och blivit en bättre fighter. I matchen mot Palomino ville Gaethje använda sitt fotarbete och finta mycket.

“I feel like I got a lot better since the last fight,” said Gaethje. “I tried to really use my footwork, I think I went in there with the mindset that I was going to do a lot more fakes. But I’m a fighter. I need to go in there press the pace. When I do that, things work, things feel good. So I’ve got to do that more often.

“I’m really trying to be more technical,” sa Gaethje. “But I feel like that’s what got me into trouble probably in this fight. I’m guessing. Like I said, I don’t know. I got a couple takedowns. But I mean, this is fighting. It takes one punch. So I’m going to go out there and I’m hunting for that one punch, just like I did tonight.”

Gaethje vill gärna gå match igen innan året är slut och för honom spelar det ingen roll vem han möter, men Gaethje skulle inte ha någonting emot att få möta Brian Foster (23-7) i december.

“I still don’t think any of them could beat Palomino. That’s a tough dude right there,” Gaethje said. “He’s worked so hard for so long. But yeah, if any of those guys want it, I’m obviously right here. I don’t get to pick and choose and I don’t want to pick and choose. I want whoever thinks they’re ready, whoever thinks they’re capable.

“I want to get paid again, so let’s bring it. Brian Foster says he’s sending chills down my spine? I’ll f**k him up if we fight. Plain and simple. I don’t give a s**t (about the tournament). I’ll fight him in December, right before Christmas.”
