BMF title holder Justin Gaethje is ready to give everything and more in his fight against Max Holloway.

“I do not look too far ahead. Honestly, I have no clue what the future holds. I don’t usually plan on being alive the day after my fights, so hopefully I’m there on Sunday.”

Even though the fight against Holloway has the BMF title on the line, there is a bigger prize on the horizon for “The Highlight”.

“I know with a win here, I fight for the (lightweight) belt,” Gaethje said. “I know with a loss here, that all goes away. That’s what I’m fighting for.”

Justin Gaethje: “A traumatic life experience”

Lightweight champion Islam Makhachev wants to defend his strap in June, however, that might be a bit too soon for Gaethje.

“I do think June would probably be impossible for me, as every time I fight is a traumatic life experience. I need to go home and unwind, take care of my body, take care of my head. But I have coaches and a manager who ultimately make those decisions, so if they say, ‘Go,’ I go.”
