Petr Yan vs Aljamain Sterling


  • Preview

Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling are facing off for the Bantamweight title on the main card of UFC 259: Blachowicz vs Adesanya. Petr Yan is the current champion with a 15-1 record and is currently undefeated at 7-0 in the UFC, with his only loss coming prior to the UFC in a match against Magomedov who is also with the UFC. Aljamain Sterling is currently the number 1 ranked contender with a 19-3 record with an 11-3 record within the UFC.

Petr Yan will have the advantage as long as they can stay on the feet with his boxing and Muay Thai. Aljamain Sterling's best path to victory would either involve a decision victory or a submission victory, with his wrestling and jiu-jitsu background. This fight should be very entertaining. Aljamain Sterling's ground game will take this fight later into the fight but when Sterling does get his hands on Yan, Yan may get submitted. Overall Yan will try to keep Sterling off of him but Yan does also have a ground game of his own so I don't expect a quick submission leading me to take over 2.5 rounds.
