The sequel to WSOF lightweight champion Justin Gaethje (15-0) and Luis Palomino’s WSOF 19 war inside of Phoenix, Arizona’s Comerica Theatre took place in the very same setting and produced the same amount of fireworks.
Palomino (23-11) appeared to have Gaethje in trouble early but as we learned in their first fight, the undefeated lightweight (is he the most famous fighter in the world without a Wiki page?) appears to have a chin made of granite. Gaethje would take everything Palomino had to offer once again and he’d counter with his own brand of offense – neither man would use anything resembling defense on the night.
In the end, it would be Gaethje emerging victorious via strikes; this time a round earlier, leaving no question that he’s the man to beat at 155 lbs.
