Petr Yan was disqualified at his crossing with Aljamain Sterling, hence Dana White spoke about it. The UFC President gave his opinion on the brutal and unusual illegal blow by the Russian, for which he lost the belt at UFC 259. It was left in the hands of the Jamaican, who was very affected by the unauthorized knee. Undoubtedly, this ended the illusion of the Russian, who only had the Bantamweight title in his possession for a short time.
After the fight, Dana White he acknowledged: ‘It sucked. It was a good fight. That was a fight that got everyone excited. Everyone knew it was going to be good. That was a bad one. Before the fight, the referee was paying close attention to the position of the hand when the fighter is punished or not. I was too focused on his hands and forgot about his legs. Obviously, I didn’t want to make an illegal shot.
The sayings of the protagonists
According to what was known, from the corner they warned him to hit his rival, he obeyed, but the Jamaican had three points of contact on the canvas and everything was invalidated at UFC 259. “You saw everything. I don’t even know what to say. Before the fight, the referee was paying close attention to the position of the hand when the fighter is punished or not. I was too focused on his hands and I forgot about his legs, ”said the former champion.
For its part, Petr Yan he was very affected by this defeat: “Obviously, I did not want to make an illegal shot. No, I didn’t realize that. For a while, I thought I did everything right and I didn’t think I was down. It sucks, and I think he, as a fighter, doesn’t want to accept the belt this way either. And if he’s going to be healthy, I hope we’ll have a rematch soon.
“I’m very sorry that this really ended up like this, but it was totally illegal and I was in no condition to continue. A pity that everything has happened like this. We spent many weeks preparing to beat him in another way and everything happens that way. I can’t really believe it, but that’s it. Now I don’t know what will happen, I will have to wait », he also explained Aljamain Sterling, who now leads the Bantamweight.
