Former UFC lightweight champion Petr Yan once again expressed dissatisfaction with the behavior of the current title holder Aljamain Sterling after their fight.
Aljamain Sterling left a message on Twitter, expressing the opinion that former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley should not have a rematch with video blogger Jake Paul, to whom he lost the day before by a split decision of the judges in a boxing match.
Maybe I’m crazy, but I just feel “MY” dignity is worth more than the payday for a rematch like this. Maybe it’s bc I’m not in that situation but it’s like will things really be different? Woodley has all tools in the world, and has been on top with those…
Peter Yan responded by saying that Sterling had lost his dignity during their fight.
“You lost your dignity when you cried to get the belt idiot” said Peter Yan.
Recall that the fight between Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling took place in March this year at UFC 259. The fight was stopped in the fourth round, when the Russian inflicted a prohibited knee blow, after which his opponent could not continue the fight. As a result, Yan was disqualified, and Sterling became the champion.
The fighters will have a rematch at the UFC 267, which will be held on October 30 in Abu Dhabi.
