Taktarov thinks Jan and Sterling’s rematch could lead UFC tournament


Former mixed fighter Oleg Taktarov spoke about a possible rematch between Russian Peter Yan and American Aljemain Sterling for the UFC bantamweight title.

“The viewer got interested, this fight can already lead the tournament. I thought there were no other options but to try to get Henry Segudo back from retirement. And then he substituted himself. But this is not the story with Conor, when he and the bus attacked, when they jumped out of the ring. Such a performance, I think, will not allow the UFC to do any more, “Sport-Express quotes Taktarov.

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.
