Justin Gaethje recently shocked the MMA world as he defeated Tony Ferguson at UFC 249. It was believed that Ferguson would easily win the fight and that he would go on to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov for the title. Well, the plans have completely changed and now, Gaethje is in the driver's seat.

Over the last week, Conor McGregor has been harassing Gaethje for a fight but as he explained to TMZ, he is only looking to fight Khabib right now. However, Gaethje noted that he would like to fight McGregor and that it's cool to see the Irishman beg him for a fight as opposed to the other way around.

Cleary, Gaethje is just grateful to be in this position right now. However, he would be an underdog against Khabib so there is a whole lot of training ahead of him.
