  • He is pathetic fighter most overrated, his skills during fight against khabib showed us that he is 2nd grade mma fighter

  • Justin I still didn't see a cut.

  • I thought in the beginning of the interview he said "mm I'm happy to, I'm happy to be alive" :D

  • I can't even imagine...I don't wanna imagine Justin G

  • This girl need divorce benavides

  • Justin Gaethje will destory Conor McGregor

  • Megan Olivi so beautiful, omg....

  • Way to go Juston very classy 🇨🇦👍

  • Now you're a humble guy 🤣🤣

  • Legends are people who even after a loss win people's hearts.

  • In the heat of the fight; Justin does not even realize he was forced into panic mode to reposition @ 3:39 during last round with a eye gouge from Khabib. Or Justin is just to good a guy to mention it.

  • Anahi

  • Justin I love u brother ,🔥👑🥰

  • 👍

  • Seeing people smash each others face in brings no tears, but when Khabib cry, i cry

  • Khabib win this though match with broken foot. Khabib is better at everything not just gapling.He can destroyed Justin with punch if he want.

  • He made me a fan. This is how you take a loss. Respect.

  • Most dangerous fighters are fighters like him . Don’t care win or lose , just having a beautiful time .

  • Khabib got the win, but Justin got another fan. This man is a true American gentleman. My favorite MMA fighter. RESPECT ✊!

  • Khabib The sandman Nurmagomedov.

  • I just saw a Nipple! Oops

  • Limping for 3 weeks??? It wasn't there even for 3 minutes 😂 khabib is a monster...

  • Just my opinion. Justin looked nervous when he faced Khabib. Actually he has skills to fight back, his mentality got down in the cage. I hope he'll getting better.

  • Justin Gaethje lost the match but Justin Gaethje is not loser

  • Kid said he is ready to die in there but tapped twice in same night. Chicken


  • I’m rooting for you now Justin, till you retire. Keep it up man

  • Lmfao lost his belt real quick

  • The reason Khabib dominated so quickly on the ground is because Justin didn't defend AT ALL... And either he's not aware of the holes in his defense or he's choosing not to mention it but that kind of domination usually only happens to someone with no experience in Jujitsu ...

  • khabib fans new favourite "Justin".

  • That green chicks should ask Gaetjhe did Khabib don't want to maul him in front of his parents and chose to put Gaetjhe to sleep Khabib had mercy on Gaetjhe right.

  • As a muslim I tell u Justin you are a good fighter , and also you have a good soul, I watched your fight with khabib , my heart feel respect about u, because your behavior is so gantle, and honest.

  • He is gonna comeback even stronger now. Watchout LW!

  • Future champ

  • You would have won if you had got a few more kicks? That was a one sided beating. Khabib is on another level

  • Please Justin never share your weakness to public.... you ll know consequences later ...

    • I don't think that it was some kind of a secret to the general public...

  • Khabib fans are now justins fans no doubt

  • such a sweet guy - "when you choked out.... I'm not a doctor" So adorable and innocent - Just love him - Respect to you man

  • Khabib fan here, but Justin is also one of my favorite fighters. As tough as he is, his personality is also great.

  • Das

  • Khabib, Justin, Dustin....they are what mma is all about

  • Khabib and Justin. Real men. Great fighters.

  • Justin just keeps on winning our heart, I mean look at this guy and Khabib these two are all about fighting rather than trash talk. UFC needs more down to earth fighters like these guys who do all their talking by their action and skill inside the octagon.

  • Classy as ever, Justin Gaethje. Hats off

  • Now I'm just rooting for Justin to rearrange McChicken face.

  • What a class act, congrats to Justin's parents for raising a fine young man!

  • Justin has a good future ahead, especially now Khabib is going

  • What a class act, congrats to Justin's parents for raising a fine young man!

  • For someone who takes a lot of damage to the head, Justin is pretty clear in this thought process. Respect his mind and how her presents himself. You just cant hate the guy. He will be in the top 5 till her retires.

  • God bless JG wish him all the best in the future and hope he becomes more successful fighter

    • too many fighters become more hesitant and get picked apart

  • I like Justin, but he's delusion of leg kicks to beat Habib was his down fall. After making to many leg kicks Habib just caught like I thought and finshed him with out ground and pound.

    • @hoiy vinosa me to, Conor is a vicious puncher who can sleep opponents,. I also think Connor can do Tony.

    • McGregor vs gathje would be a good fight but I think McGregor tkos him inside 4 rounds

  • "I took three shots to the head" face full of bruises 😅

    • @Roguestatus33 khabib landed 26 out of 80 attempted strikes, Justin landed landed 29 out of 45, a 3 significant strikes difference is not that big. Khabib was more busy and did more damage on the feet, just look at the bruises on Justin’s face and compare it to khabib’s. So NO, Khabib was the better striker in this fight.

    • Be careful brother I have a very good jab - khabib

    • @Man Can 29 significant strikes against Khabib... he’s by far the better striker. Be real

    • Exactly and khabib got none and gaethje is supposed to be the better striker.

    • Heavy punches he said

  • he is classy in defeat. love him

  • Nice post show with Megan, Gaethje and his BJJ coach.


  • Both fighters are a class act. This is actually heartwarming.

  • Justin said he gave lot of damage to khabib and probably dont walk next 3 weeks. That was funny. I saw khabib just after win doesnt seems to hurt any thing there he looked like he didn't even had a training session on October 24th. How about that ? Anyway respect to justin for his effort 😀😀😀😀

  • she is so wet

  • Justin Gaetjhe has done himself n his family proud. Khabib is some animal man...

  • there’s definitely still health consequences when getting choked unconscious lmao

    • @bofooit gojo yeah he didn't want to hurt gaethje clearlu that's why he choked someone with problems breathing out of his nose out.

    • Crazy to think Khabib didnt want to hurt him so he just put him to sleep. That is epic control of the fight

  • Megan is overdressed. She can tone it down

    • I went to school with him and his twin brother . Great guy.

  • i dont like khabib as a person but i massively respect him recognising the damage to his legs and the shots landing to the head and him taking the fight tojustin with urgency. too many fighters become more hesitant and get picked apart

  • "I took three shots to the head" face full of bruises 😅

  • McGregor vs gathje would be a good fight but I think McGregor tkos him inside 4 rounds

  • Respect 🙌 Justin

  • gameplan... You can't argue that Russian guy is way above everyone in that division...

  • Great Guy ! Great Fighter ! Lotta respect for this guy ! 👊🏼✨

  • hes a great loser man, great positive attitude.

    • was the best in the history of UFC.

  • I m a great supporter of khabib but if do not play any more then from now itself I m with jastin not only me everybody should stand for justin. He is a good guy with kind hearted. Love u justin I will keep supporting u always. Love u men. U r no. 1. Hopefully ur parents give u all good education and teach u all respect. Send my love to ur parents.god bless u and ur family bro.

  • The fact that khabib switch to triangle and didn't want to break justin arm and hrut him afront of his parents shows that khabib is A LEGEND and true Honor and kind person same goes to Justin he's a great guy , big respect toward these guys

  • Oh. This is an ' are you hot?' girl If u know, u know😁

  • I went to school with him and his twin brother . Great guy.

  • Crazy to think Khabib didnt want to hurt him so he just put him to sleep. That is epic control of the fight

  • great guy

  • I wish he is the next champ( I dont like cocky people. I only like humble people)

    • Tony now realising one takedown would've been enough to submit Justin gethje.😂🤣🤣

  • Justin punches are very hard..

  • Graceful in defeat or a win Justin" You are a great sportsperson." No thrash talking like McGregor. You admit your grappling needs to improve, hopefully you focus on this area. With love & good wishes.

  • Honesty has a way of getting people on your side.

  • Nice guy. Respectable and just an all around nice guy.

  • The guy is a true sports lover, winning losing its all for the enjoyment of the sport ... much respect man and I can't wait to see your future fights.

  • Everyone must know that there is something critical in UFC fighter which make them prominent, it is not kicking nor punching skill but smartness. Habib has had it that is why he was the best in the history of UFC.

  • If i ever lose at anything, i hope to take it the way Justin does.

  • What an idiot..... Khabib make you asleep and you are not ashamed saying he is gonna limp?Fyi he is not limping and you are in Khabib's garbage basket.He is a legend and you are nothing.

  • God d*nmit i almost cried to this. Justin is such a true, humble and honest man! Hands down, My favorite fighter!

  • Justin is a gentleman, big respect from Ireland.


  • Justin is good ufc fighter and also good person he don't talk trash like ather ufc fighter's respect is everything good gentle Man.

  • This is how a real athlete talk. Justin, you have a new fan! Respect!!👍👍👍👏👏👏

  • Tony now realising one takedown would've been enough to submit Justin gethje.😂🤣🤣

    • Unfortunately throwing sand didnt work.

  • Don't worry kid, you lost to best. 29-0

  • Justin is a brave man , i love his way of talking even after losing the match.

  • Justin is definitely ,khabib's heir to the throne. Halleluah!

  • Megan looked quite emotional when Justin talked about the effects of getting knocked out. I hope Benavidez is okay

    • Justin is a good man, good attitude, also good fighter

  • Still one of my favorite fighters ❤

  • he was just eating them leg kicks to get him down...not the best plan by gaethje in my opinion

  • Not to be rude but Justin has respect but that fight sucked. He had no chance.

  • By the way Justin, khabib is not really limping :)

  • Good dude. Wish he stayed out of his emotions which I personally feel he allow to overwhelm him and gas him extra. Khabib was cutting the ring of throwing power. Khabib should have honestly been fighting super welterweight or middleweight.
