Justin Gaethje Explains Weakness In Conor McGregor's Game

Justin Gaethje has set his sights on becoming the UFC lightweight champion.

The undefeated powerhouse has earned championship gold with every promotion he's competed in before arriving to the Octagon earlier this year, which puts the UFC strap as the ultimate prize lingering in the distance. Granted, there are fights to win and a few scenarios that need to play out before Gaethje would earn a championship opportunity, but the good news for fans of the former World Series of Fighting king is the hard-hitting Arizona native has no qualms with slugging and smashing his way through any obstacles standing in his way.

The 28-year-old is currently slated to face former lightweight titleholder Eddie Alvarez following their coaching stints on The Ultimate Fighter, and should the knockout artist topple "The Underground King" when they collide later this year, Gaethje wants a showdown with reigning champion Conor McGregor. Gaethje believes he has what it takes to defeat McGregor, and sees one particular area of the "Notorious" one's game that has been exploited before and will be again if they should meet inside the Octagon.

Gaethje provided insight on McGregor's cardio issues and his belief as to why the Irishman's gas tank is suspect during a recent interview with MMAFighting.com.

"The reason he can't fight through when he gets super tired is he's never grappled," Gaethje said. "You have to learn how to fight through when it sucks and it's really hard. You have to be in that position over and over and over, to be able to perform in that mindset. The fact that he's never wrestled or grappled, it doesn't help when he gets super tired and starts questioning himself."
