“I am aggressive,” he said. “My style looks sloppy especially if people don’t know what they are watching and that’s a lot of people. I hit hard and am able to move forward. The critics are the critics.”

The champion defeated Melvin Guillard in a non-title catch weight fight. Guillard didn’t end up making weight so it became a non-title fight where Gaethje won by split decision.

“It was a bit disrespectful but in those circumstances I get more money, so I can’t complain,” he said.

He said he is ready for the fight against Palomino who he just started to hear about when he got to the WSOF.

“Luis Palomino is a different Luis Palomino than he was three years ago,” he said. “He has fought with major confidence. He comes to brawl. He swings to the fences. I love watching him fighting. He thinks I don’t hit hard but wait till I hit.”
