Fiziev started to slow at the mid-way point allowing Gaethje to establish his jab. The lead hand set up a variety of boxing combinations that snapped back Fiziev’s head, finding particular success with a jab-right uppercut string. Right at the death Gaethje landed a takedown to undoubtedly secure himself the round.
Post-fight, the all-American wrestler, who rarely uses his grappling joked: “I got my takedown, everybody can shut the f*** up now,” in reference to his last gasp double leg.
