Justin Gaethje Vs Rafael Fiziev Set To Take Place At UFC 286 In London

A huge UFC lightweight bout is on the verge of being finalized.

Justin Gaethje and Rafael Fiziev have been rumored to be fighting each other next for the last few weeks and those rumors have been proven to be true as Brett Okamoto has confirmed that the bout is close to being finalized and will take place at the huge UFC 286 card which will take place in London in March.

When it was announced by Dana White that the UFC were bringing a pay-per-view to the UK, he promised UK fans that he would make it an insane card.

So far the card isn't looking that great as it is mainly filled with UK talent but Gaethje vs Fiziev being added to the card is a huge boost as there currently aren't many major names announced to be fighting on the show and the main event hasn't been announced either.

This is a huge fight for both men but particularly Fiziev who has been on a tear as of late at 155 and nobody has come close to beating him.

Will Gaethje be able to derail the Fiziev hype train and work his way towards another title shot or will Fiziev make a statement by defeating one of the toughest men the lightweight division has ever seen?
