UFC bantamweight champion Petr Yan is set to defend his bantamweight title against the no.1 contender Aljamain Sterling at UFC 259, and ahead of their fight, he sent Sterling a video of what is about to go down in their fight.
Both these fighters were exchanging some heated words on social media and this banter was really interesting to watch for the fans. “Funk Master” was having fun while infuriating Yan and now Yan has fired back.
Yan is in excellent condition and the fight is just two weeks away. He posted a video of heavy ground and pound and he clearly plans to do the same to his opponent when the octagon door closes.
This is also a direct taunt to Sterling’s fighting style, he is a jiu-jitsu expert and likes to take the fight to the ground, now the message is loud and clear for what’s about to happen once the fight hits the canvas.
Petr Yan opens as the betting favorite
The Russian Petr Yan has been opened as the slight betting favorite in the fight, and the line has been steady thus far but once we hit the fight week we might see some major changes in the betting odds as well.
No one can be counted out in this fight and to think anyone would have an advantage would be a wrong assumption, it is a very exciting matchup and fans are excited to watch these two have at it.
