Interim lightweight champion Gaethje and unbeaten title-holder Khabib meet at UFC 254 on October 24 at an as-yet unannounced location, which is widely expected to be 'Fight Island' in Abu Dhabi.
Khabib recently fired an ominous warning to Gaethje, saying he would "take him to the deepest ocean and drown him" when they clash.
But the American – who set up his shot at Khabib by dismantling Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 in May – has now laid out his own plans for the Russian, vowing he would counter his oppressive grappling game and "create carnage."
“We’re not wrestling anymore. There’s going to be a zone in front of me, it’s not very big. It’s going to be a zone of death, and I have to represent death every time he enters this zone," Gaethje told Michael Bisping on his Believe You Me podcast.
"That’s what I’m the best at, creating carnage, creating car crashes. My goal when I step in there is to create as many car crashes as possible.
