Sterling expressed bewilderment at the UFC’s desire to give Ian an immediate rematch with him


Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight champion Aljamein Sterling wonders why ex-league champion Peter Jan should get immediate revenge with him.

“When you deliberately do something prohibited, in other sports you are suspended, fined and excluded from the game. Jan is awarded with revenge. It turns out that you can just break the rules and nothing will happen. I can easily jump out of the octagon and nothing will happen to me, I can go up to push my opponent after the gong, and nothing will happen. I think that if the rules exist, then for some reason, they must be followed. If not, then let’s forget about them altogether, ”BJ Penn quotes Sterling.

Peter Jan and Aljamein Sterling met at UFC 259. The Russian in the fourth round dealt an illegal knee blow to an opponent on the ground. As a result, Ian was disqualified, he was stripped of the title, and the victory and the champion’s belt went to the American. After the fight, the head of the UFC, Dana White, said that the league would soon organize a rematch between these fighters.

Earlier, Magomedsharipov expressed the opinion that Ian was unfairly deprived of the UFC champion belt.
