At UFC 218, Eddie Alvarez and Justin Gaethje went to battle as many predicted they would.
An unbelievable three round war, both men didn’t take their foot off the gas even once, before Alvarez landed a huge knee in the third to send Gaethje to the canvas, and end the fight.
As usual, many of the fighters watching were as excited as the fans. Here’s a few of their reactions to a brilliant contest.
Justin is having trouble hurting Eddie so he can’t stop him from pressuring him. Unreal fight
