Justin Gaethje & James Vick Continue Trash Talk

With the UFC Lincoln card less than two weeks away, Justin Gaethje and James Vick have continued their trash talk right back where it started: over Twitter.

Speaking to Submission Radio last week, Vick said that following their face-to-face verbal exchange at the UFC’s 25th Anniversary, he felt bad for Gaethje due to how “dumb” Gaethje looked:

“I kind of felt bad for him after going back and watching the press conference,” Vick said. “He just didn’t have anything in the arsenal. I guess he felt dumb after getting clowned on that first question, so then he comes back at me, tries to ask me another one and then I clown him again. So, I feel like I killed the dude in the press conference, to be honest with you. I felt like there was nothing else he could really say.”

Less than a week after these comments, Gaethje has returned with more to say:

“@JamesVickMMA will never think of himself the same when I am done with him August 25th in Lincoln, NE. I will put him to sleep and he will wake up a humbled turd,” Gaethje wrote.

Before long, James Vick offered his rebuttal:

“Yeah and when I’m done with you, you’ll still be a punch drunk meat head on a 3 fight losing streak. But hey, at least you’ll still have money in your bank account #homersimpsonofmma,”

It won’t be too long before we see which side gets the last word in this ongoing argument.
