After receiving a fair amount of hate after claiming yet another injury, reigning UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling revealed that he was misunderstood and that he could return to the octagon soon.
“They hear what they want to hear,” Sterling wrote on the social media. “The king hasn’t gone anywhere – now we will find out everything with the doctor, and then we will talk with the UFC and decide on the date”
The UFC champion also turned to his rival Henry Cejudo, who a day earlier agreed to the challenge of Sean O’Malley.
“Henry Cejudo, why are you trying to escape? I never said the fight was cancelled. I train my biceps with the UFC team and doctors. You can wait a month and I’ll give you a beating. Because if you lose to Sean O’Malley, you can say goodbye to your chance to meet the real King.”
A few days earlier, Aljamain Sterling announced that he would not be able to defend his title against Henry Cejudo, whom he was scheduled to face on March 4 at UFC 285 in Las Vegas, due to a bicep injury.
