Boxer Kudryashov believes that Peter Yan morally broke Aljamain Sterling before the title fight in the UFC
Russian boxer Dmitry Kudryashov reacted to the news about the postponement of the fight between Peter Yan and Aljamain Sterling from March to April.
“I know Peter, I saw that he was ready for battle. Peter could hardly cancel the fight. Sterling throws words, but Peter has already broken him mentally. Everyone grabs attention as best they can. Sterling stirs up interest with his behavior. Confidence in the result is on the side of Peter Yan. I don’t know who can beat him now. Peter in his head had already defeated him. Last time was just a mistake. I believe he is stronger now. It is simply impossible for Sterling to change in such a short time. What can he offer Peter Yan? Unclear. But what Peter can offer him is just clear, ”REN TV quotes Kudryashov as saying.
The fight between Jan and Sterling was supposed to take place on March 5 at the UFC 272 tournament. On the night of January 11-12, it became known that the fight was rescheduled for the UFC 273 tournament, which will take place on April 9.
Yan lost to Sterling in March 2021 due to a foul – kneeing an opponent in the ground position. Because of this defeat, the Russian lost the UFC bantamweight title. Yan later defeated Corey Sandhagen by decision for the interim UFC bantamweight title.
