Sterling and gold? UFC confirm Russian bantamweight champion Petr Yan to face Aljamain Sterling in first title defense

1 month ago   |   By RT

A recent run of impressive performances has earned Aljamain Sterling the world title shot he craves against Russian bantamweight champion Petr Yan, UFC president Dana White confirmed on Wednesday.
The 19-3 Sterling has been in exceptional form in the cage recently, earning significant plaudits in June for an impressive 88-second rear-naked choke submission win against the highly-regarded Cory Sandhagen as well as the highlight-reel 'Suloev Stretch' which coaxed a tap from Cody Stamann a year ago.
