WSOF’s lightweight champion and lover of violence, Justin Gaethje (17-0) appears to have signed with the UFC.
WSOF head honcho, Ray Sefo tweeted the news earlier, wishing Gaethje luck in his new endeavour.

Though MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani has since tweeted that it’s not a done deal just yet, Gaethje’s twitter (and numerous RTs) would suggest the unbeaten prospect is UFC bound.
Gaethje would be leaving WSOF just as the promotion undertakes some major changes, rebranding itself as the Professional Fighters League.
