But a clip of the undefeated Russian absorbing stinging leg kicks like they're nothing from Edson Barboza has convinced some fans that Gaethje won't be a match for him.

"They won't effect him at all," one social media user wrote.

A second tweeted: "Barboza is one hell of a kicker."

A third added: "I know calf kicks are a lot worse than thigh kicks. But there a lot easier to grab singles with."

"I'll do it the same exact way that I have done it for every single fight. I will work to be my best self. I'm so athletic," he told ESPN.

"The first thing to go when you get tired is your legs. So, from now on till then, I'm gonna be running a lot, jump roping a lot, lot of airdyne, lot of step-ups, a lot of squats. If my legs are in shape, I don't get tired.

"And if I don't get tired then I can get back up. And if I can get back up, I can hit him. If I can hit him, I hit like a truck. I only gotta kick him 8 times in the calves before he is compromised."
