After being crowned the new Bantamweight champion in the UFC, Petr Yan will be measured against Aljamain Sterling. Dana White who confirmed it a few hours ago, announcing the date, the place and that they will be in the co-star of the night. This being the case, the president made it official that the Russian will defend the belt for the first time against the first-placed 135-pounder. This will be at UFC 256, on December 12, in Las Vegas.
The higher powers definitely had a plan and I think that was the icing on the cake to solidify that there are no more escapes, dancing around the fact that I should be boy number one and I am boy number one. I think I was number one last year when Pedro Munhoz knocked out Cody Garbrandt and then I beat Pedro Munhoz. That should have put me back at number one. It was not like that, “he began by saying.
Continuing on the same line, Aljamain He stressed: “Then I fight Cory Sandhagen, I get the victory there. They told me this was a No. 1 contender fight, it didn’t happen. Then Dominick Cruz comes in, they throw him there. ‘Oh Dominick Cruz, how could you not give it to him, he’s a legend? Bla bla bla. Henry Cejudo wants to fight him. He wants to fight the toughest guys. ‘ For real? You want to fight the toughest guy who’s coming off a loss and is on the couch for four years?
“He has to fight Marlon Moraes. Close fight, divided decision, but loses. Dana White treats it as a win for José Aldo, gets a title shot and fights Petr Yan, after Henry Cejudo retires. Vacant title, I thought it was definitely a shoo-in for that. Not, Petr Yan is the shoo-in. It’s okay, Dana, it’s okay. I see what you’re doing, “he said angrily.
To finish, and continue heating the previous one, Aljamain Sterling dictated: «You give to Petr Yan a title shot by beating Urijah Faber. Who did he beat before that? After that, Aldo loses the fight, Petr Yan is the champion, I have to be next. ‘Oh wait, we won’t announce it yet. We are waiting for this. Frankie Edgar is fighting Pedro Munhoz. ‘ Another obstacle! Do you see all the obstacles that I had to overcome, all the emotional stress that I was dealing with? It was just a roller coaster.
