Justin Gaethje vs Luis Palomino I & II, WSOF 19 & WSOF 23, 28 March & 18 September 2015
Two of the best and most exhilarating fights in MMA, Justin Gaethje and Luis Palomino put on two fights of a lifetime. MMAJunkie recently recently ranked the WSOF 19 fight as one of the best fights of 2015. Justin and Luis likely took a few years off each others lives with this eye popping, jaw dropping, unbelievable amount of action.
The world of MMA is live and kicking outside the UFC and full of talented fighters full of heart, focus, and determination. Considered one of the most under-rated and under-watched fighters, Justin Gaethje won the WSOF Lightweight Championship in 2014. Training out of the Grudge Training Center lead by coach Trevor Wittman, Justin Gaethje has been able to leverage his wrestling background to find the right combination between skill, heart, and power.
Since winning the title in January 2014, he has defended it 4 times in less than two years. No UFC Lightweight Champion has ever been able to defend his title more than 3 times! In 2015, he defended it twice against Luis Palomino in two fights that have put WSOF on the MMA world map.
Luis Palomino is a very experienced fighter with wins over Jorge Masvidal, Daron Cruickshank, and Gesias Cavalcante. He trains out of the MMA Masters team based in Florida alongside Ricardo Lamas and Junior Assuncao. What makes Luis Palomino especially interesting to watch is his accomplishments in Capoeira. Fights that have a background in Capoeira not only have a more interesting method of movement and fluidity, they also have a touch of fearlessness. Perhaps developed from training Capoeira flips and tumbles on concrete…
Justin Gaethje vs Luis Palomino is one of the most action packed fights I have ever watched in MMA. Each fighter almost knocks each other out in every single round. Back and forth flying high paced fighting with no rest, no filters, no holding back. It is amazing the amount of significant strikes each fighter can take, then recover, then dish it right back! An absolute fight fans delight!
