Last updated

Petr Yan has reacted to Aljamain Sterling’s recent comments on a potential rematch. Aljamain Sterling won the UFC Bantamweight Championship back at UFC 259; Sterling defeated Petr Yan after an illegal knee was hit by the former Champion Yan. When Sterling was unable to further compete, the fight was ruled as finished due to the illegal knee to a downed opponent.

Since the event, there have been questions regarding Aljamain Sterling’s conduct post fight. There’s absolutely no question that the knee hit Sterling and caused at the very least a concussion, it was an illegal knee and rightly Petr Yan was disqualified. Several fans, critics and even fighters have questioned Aljamain Sterling and have said that he was ’˜acting’ to get the disqualification.
