Great fighters produce great fights, and that’s exactly what happened with much of the UFC 218 card last night – and in particular, the match-up between former champ Eddie Alvarez and total badass Justin Gaethje.
For nearly three full rounds, the duo battered each other as if there was nothing but hatred in the cage (there wasn’t – the two TUF coaches share nothing but respect). And though it was ultimately Gaethje who fell to a well-placed knee thrown by Alvarez, it’s hard to say any man truly lost in that fight.
Especially since they won a $50,000 bonus for “Fight of the Night”.
Here’s Alvarez showing Gaethje some love.
Your the toughest son of bitch I ever fought @Justin_Gaethje , takes two to tango brother .. We Won !!!
