Justin Gaethje Pays Off Lunch Debts For Denver School Students

Former WSOF Lightweight Champion Justin Gaethje was last seen in action in the main event of UFC Fight Night Vancouver, defeating Donald Cerrone by first round TKO.

The fighter, who isn’t booked for a bout at the moment, recently paid off over $1,500 in school lunch debts for a bunch of students in the Denver area according to 9News. Those lunch debts paid off by Gaethje were acquired in the first semester of the school year by the students.

“It was just kind of a speechless moment," said Executive Principle Ana Mendoza. "It was just very emotional for me to know that our families don’t have to worry.”

West Early College High School & Middle School posted the following on their Facebook page:

“West Early College families received a wonderful holiday gift today. Shout out to Justin "The Highlight" Gaethje who is a champion UFC fighter and friend to our Cowboys.

Gaethje trains out of the Grudge Training Center in Arvada, Colorado and is currently ranked #4 in the UFC Lightweight Division. Gaethje is reportedly friends with a teacher at the school, which was one of the reasons the fighter helped with the students lunch debt.
