Former UFC bantamweight champion Petr Yan just wants to fight and now he is ready to battle against someone even outside of the top 10 rankings. Yan last lost a split decision fight in a rematch against current champion Aljamain Sterling back in April at UFC 273. Yan is a very seasoned striker with some great wrestling from an offensive point of view. Yan has victories over the likes of Jose Aldo, Urijah Faber, Cory Sandhagen and many more.

Yan has been on a callout spree over the last few times and he even called out current UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo. Yan’s beef on Twitter has been against the likes of Henry Cejudo, TJ Dillashaw, Sterling and more. But Cejudo is eyeing his return in the form of a title shot and Sterling is probably going to make his second title defence against Dillashaw.

Petr Yan also urges Sean O’Malley to stop talking about him if he wants to make “useless noise for hype”

Sean O’Malley- Petr Yan

Another name Yan has gone back and forth with on Twitter is the potential UFC megastar, Sean O’Malley. O’Malley is fighting this weekend facing the toughest test of his career against Pedro Munhoz at UFC 276. In one of the interviews during his pre-fight media scrum, O’Malley expressed his frustration with top-ranked fighters overlooking him and not willing to compete against him. In return, Yan had to say something on Twitter.

He tweeted: “Hey pink poodle @SugaSeanMMA , if you win on Saturday and really wanna fight me I dare you to call me out and I will accept it. But if you just wanna make useless noise for hype, stop talking about me, coward [dog emoji].”

What do you make of Yan’s reaction to O’Malley’s frustration in the form of a callout? Do you think O’Malley will be able to get past Munhoz this weekend at UFC 276? If so, should he call out Yan or someone else? How do you think that fight will go if it ever happens?
