There was no brutal back and forth war for Justin Gaethje this time. In fact, it was a short nights work for the man known for his involvement in drag-‘em out wars.
In the main event of UFC Lincoln, Gaethje met fierce rival James Vick, on the back of months of trash talk. But while Vick has accused Gaethje of possessing a style designed to absorb damage, it was Vick himself who was left completely out of his senses come fight night. About two minutes into the first round, Gaethje hit Vick with a brutal punch, completely finishing the fight.
Indeed, it took several minutes for Vick to appear normal again.
