Justin Gaethje interrupts this UFC on FOX 29 interview to blast ‘turd’ James Vick

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Justin Gaethje’s pre-fight interview for UFC on FOX 29 was trucking along for roughly five minutes before suddenly it veered away from his headlining bout with Dustin Poirier and turned into a tirade on James Vick.

Asked about the chance to fight Poirier while coming off a loss, Gaethje told MMAjunkie, “I’m very thankful for this opportunity. I could be fighting some turd like James Vick – f-cking crybaby that never shuts up.”

Gaethje (18-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC), who faces Poirier (22-5 MMA, 14-4 UFC) in the FOX-televised main event of Saturday’s fight card at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz., said his problem with Vick stems from a callout on social media.

“That dude needs to get slapped,” Gaethje said. “He called me a b-tch on the Internet, so when I do see him, I’m going to slap the f-ck out of him. I am not happy with him.

“It’s like seeing a little kid that just won’t shut up because their parents won’t spank him. It gets old.”

Vick didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment when contacted by MMAjunkie.

“I wish it was not invented so that we could not hear anything from anybody,” he said.
