Justin Gaethje vs James Vick staredown video from UFC Fight Night 135 weigh ins

#UFCLincoln fighter face-offs live from Nebraska.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) human “Highlight,” Justin Gaethje (No. 7), will look to climb the 155-pound ladder against fellow Top 10-ranked contender (and ultra confident) James Vick (No. 10) in the upcoming UFC Fight Night 135 FOX Sports 1-televised main event, scheduled for this Saturday night (Aug. 25, 2018) inside Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Gaethje — a former World Series of Fighting (WSOF) Lightweight champion — took UFC by storm in his Octagon debut, scoring a thrilling technical knockout over Michael Johnson on his Octagon debut little more than one year ago. He has dropped back-to-back bouts since, though, making his performance this weekend all the more important. Vick, meanwhile, is in the midst of a four-fight win streak and is motivated to use Gaethje as a springboard for bigger fights down the road.

Check out their UFC Fight Night 135 staredowns above, which also features an apparently heated co-main between 145-pound standouts, Michael Johnson and Andre Fili, who got a little, well, “Touchy.”

Hasta mañana! will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC Fight Night 135 fight card this weekend, starting with the Fight Pass “Prelims” undercard bout at 6:30 p.m. ET, followed by the FOX Sports 2 “Prelims” undercard bouts at 8 p.m. ET, before the main card start time at 10 p.m. ET, also on FOX Sports 1.
