    Petr Yan claims UFC doesn’t want Aljamain Sterling headlining an event


    The feud between the two men holding pieces of the UFC bantamweight title continues to rage on.

    On Tuesday, the new date of the highly-anticipated rematch between champion Aljamain Sterling and interim champion Petr Yan was confirmed to be set for UFC 273 in April, a change from a previously settled date at UFC 272 in March.

    Sterling (20-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) recently stated the delay was due to Yan’s personal reasons and not being vaccinated for COVID-19. However, Yan (16-2 MMA, 8-1 UFC) claimed that is not true as he is vaccinated and ready to fight now, while citing a completely different reason for the change in date, which prompted a back-and-forth exchange on social media Tuesday evening.
