Jean-Claude Van Damme turned to Peter Yan

Cult actor of the 80’s and 90’s, Jean-Claude Van Damme, has sent his regards to former UFC flyweight champion, Petr Jan, after meeting Archangel Michael Club coach Martin Wodecki in the Czech Republic.

“Hi Petr Jan! You are a great champion with good speed, great technique and high endurance. Martin is a great coach and champion, as is Jean-Claude Van Damme. A big hug!”, Van Damme said in a video posted on the club’s social media accounts.

In March of this year, 30-year-old Peter Yan suffered his third straight defeat, losing by unanimous decision to Merab Dvalishvili over five rounds, and is currently ranked fifth in the UFC’s lightweight division rankings.

At the moment, the Russian fighter is undergoing rehabilitation to heal his troublesome injuries and plans to return to the octagon early next year.
