Justin Gaethje’s first-round knockout win over Edson Barboza earlier tonight (Sat., Mar. 30, 2019) at UFC on ESPN 2 from inside Wells Fargo Heart in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, impressed the MMA group as an entire. Struggle followers had been fortunately delighted to see the anticipated light-weight showdown finish in fireworks and different fighters had been amazed with the dominant efficiency by “Spotlight.”
Whereas he’s now not a fellow UFC fighter to Gaethje, the newly-retired Conor McGregor was a kind of to weigh in on Gaethje’s scintillating knockout blow over Barboza. “Infamous” took to Twitter following the conclusion of the ESPN predominant occasion to ship the next message:
That was properly completed all over.

“That was properly completed all over,” wrote McGregor. “Congratulations Justin.”
Together with his UFC profession now on ice, McGregor has a bit of extra free time to chime in on the significant occurrences in MMA and to even throw some shade at Mark Wahlberg. It’s good to see “Infamous” pay respect when it’s due. Gaethje regarded completely wonderful tonight after coming off one other first-round knockout over the gifted James Vick final August.
Contemplating the kind of performances that Gaethje continues to placed on it will have been enjoyable to see “Spotlight” and McGregor sq. off within the Octagon. That was a matchup that might have come to fruition someday sooner or later had McGregor not determined to name it quits earlier this week.
One other spectacular win for Gaethje might line him up for a possible title shot, which might imply a matchup with McGregor’s greatest rival, present UFC light-weight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
I ponder what McGregor must say about that one.
