Justin Gaethje vs. Rafael Fiziev is being finalized for a big-time matchup to add to UFC 286 from London, England.

This fight takes place in the Lightweight (155 Ibs) Division.

Justin Gaethje holds a professional record of 23-4-0 and is currently ranked #3. His notable wins include Michael Chandler, Tony Ferguson, and Donald Cerrone.

Rafael Fiziev holds a professional record of 12-1-0 and is currently ranked #6. His notable wins include Rafael dos Anjos, Brad Riddell, and Marc Diakiese.

Justin Gaethje is known for being a crowd-pleasing fighter with multiple fight of the year winners against Michael Chandler and Michael Johnson, both of which he won by knockout. He is coming off a wild back-and-forth title fight with Charles Oliveira, and although he lost that fight, the expectation for his fights remains the same, chaos.

Rafael Fiziev has taken the division by storm in recent years with his world-class Muay Thai. His last showing was a main event knockout win over Rafael dos Anjos, which came in the final round. He has been calling for this matchup for a while and now gets this opportunity on a huge stage in London.
