Some folks just don't know how to have fun.

When Justin Gaethje made his UFC debut with a victory over Michael Johnson last July, he celebrated with his highlight reel flip that he has done many times before. Apparently, the Nevada State Athletic Commission was not pleased about it and has barred fighters from climbing the cage in future events in Las Vegas according to Fox Sports.

Any fan of Gaethje's knows this is how the celebrates a win. But this is not the first time it has gotten him in trouble. Back in March of 2016 at WSOF 29 in Colorado, Gaethje got in trouble for the signature flip too from the CSBC. 

Whether it is for climbing the cage or the potential of landing on one of the many people that fill it after a win, they are taking the fun out of winning according to the current Ultimate Fighter coach. 

They’re taking all the fun away from me. I guess I’ll just go sit in the corner. Like a baby in the corner.
— Justin Gaethje

So if he happens to beat Alavarez when the current season of The Ultimate Fighter is over, he'll have to settle for raising his hands.
