Former mixed fighter Oleg Taktarov spoke about a possible rematch between Russian Peter Yan and American Aljemain Sterling for the UFC bantamweight title.
Ian and Sterling met at UFC 259. In the fourth round, the Russian delivered 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.
Sterling has previously expressed bewilderment about the UFC’s desire to give Ian an immediate rematch with him.
