After the fight, both men were taken to the hospital and weren’t allowed to talk to the media.

They will undergo a medical evaluation, and that also makes sense after the war those two went through. Justin Gaethje almost entered Chandler’s ambulance before being escorted to his own.

On his way to the hospital, in the ambulance, Chandler was live on his Instagram.

In the video, he said, “Trying not to release what my face looks like. So, I look superhuman to you guys. Just gonna do an alien in an ambulance… Hope you guys enjoyed that, I appreciate you guys. I don’t know what you guys are doing on Instagram right now. The fights are live right now. I love you guys. I’ll see you at the top.”
