Courtesy of Sherdog.com Nick Newell thought he had what it took to unseat Justin Gaethje. Their brief, one-sided encounter proved otherwise. Gaethje kept his perfect professional record intact and retained the World Series of Fighting lightweight championship with a second-round knockout against Newell in the WSOF 11 headliner on Saturday at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Fla. Buried by an accumulation of blows, Newell (11-1, 2-1 WSOF) wilted on the end of one last right hook 3:09 into round two. The unbeaten Gaethje (12-0, 5-0 WSOF) withstood an early standup surge from the Fighting Arts Academy representative, sprawled out of takedowns and ripped into his challenger with high-velocity power punches. By the time the first round was over, it became clear that the battered, bloodied and exhausted Newell was on borrowed time. Less than two minutes into round two, Gaethje fired a right hook to the body and another to [...]

CINCINNATI – A right hand over the top of Ben Wall’s (7-2-1 MMA, 0-2 UFC) defenses put him in trouble, and a follow-up left by Justin Salas (12-5 MMA, 3-2 UFC) put him down. From there, it was a short trip to a knockout victory for Salas at the 2:41 mark of Round 1. The lightweight bout was part of the preliminary card of today’s UFC Fight Night 40 event at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. It streamed on UFC Fight Pass ahead of additional bouts FOX Sports 2 and FOX Sports 1. Salas seemed to be focused on securing the takedown early, though when Wall defended well, he quickly transitioned to a close-range striking attack in the clinch. That’s where Salas landed the right hand that turned the tide of the fight, looping it in over Wall’s defenses and putting some rubber in his legs with the punch. Wall tried to recover, [...]

Lewis Gonzalez has replaced the injured Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante to face Justin Gaethje at WSOF 8, MMAWeekly.com learned on Friday. Company matchmaker Ali Abdel-Aziz and President Ray Sefo confirmed the bout. The two fighters will seek to become the first World Series of Fighting lightweight champion. Gonzalez (9-0) is fresh of a WSOF win over Antonio McKee at WSOF 4 back in August. The unanimous decision over McKee kept Gonzalez’s professional record perfect, and he will look to continue the trend on the Jan. 10 card. Gaethje (10-0) will also look to continue his undefeated trend. Eight of his 10 wins have come by knockout or TKO. WSOF 8 takes place in Hollywood, Fla. at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Bleacher Report Number 1, Justin Gaethje Record: 10-0 Age: 25 Promotion: World Series of Fighting World Series of Fighting should feel lucky that it has Justin Gaethje under contract. The leg-kicking, face-bashing Arizonian has been perfect as a professional and has proved to be the best lightweight prospect in the sport right now. In all 10 of his outings, he has dominated, finishing nine of his opponents. With wins over Marcus Edwards, Drew Fickett, JZ Cavalcante, Brian Cobb and Dan Lauzon, there is no doubt Gaethje has the credibility as a future champion and star. He is likely in line for the WSOF lightweight strap, but as of right now, he doesn’t have his next opponent lined up.
