Recently Justin Gaethje addressed who he want's next

Justin Gaethje has been winning and losing; he speaks to TMZ Sports about his future plans and the next ideal opponent.

"I think that's the obvious choice, Dustin. He's sitting at number 2 right now, I gave the new guys a chance, and I proved that I am elite, and I need to fight elite fighters to fight for a belt," said Gaethje, as quoted by tmz.com.

"I think Dustin's the obvious choice. I think the loser of Dariush and Oliveira is also an option, but outside of those two, I do not see an option". A champion never stops trying, gaethje most certainly wants a title shot again, but to reach that stage, he must prove himself on several occasions.

Justin Gaethje speaks about fighting Islam Makhachev. "I think (Islam is) a hard fight for anybody. Just create damage. I'd have to fight the perfect fight; I think I can knock him out. I think I can knock anybody out with the power that I possess".

Fight fans can expect Justin Gaethje to return again anytime this year, and it will be very interesting to see who he fights next.
