Merab Dvalishvili lay in wait for Peter Yan - what came of it

Merab Dvalishvili’s attempt to publicly sort things out with Peter Yan failed miserably after the Russian refused to enter into a verbal skirmish with his rival.

The meeting, initiated by the Georgian fighter, took place in the lobby of the hotel, where the participants of the UFC Fight Night 221 tournament live.

“Let’s do an interview, you and me. Because we won’t have a press conference, and I want to ask you questions. Let’s talk!” Dvalishvili said, stopping Jan.

It is not known what exactly and in what language the Georgian, who does not speak Russian, was going to speak with the Russian, who with great difficulty speaks English, but when Ian understood what his opponent wanted from him, his answer was short.

“After the battle!” the Russian fighter replied and left without continuing the dialogue.

Previously, the Georgian fighter has repeatedly expressed personal dislike for the Russian, including trying to give the upcoming fight a political overtone, however, the former UFC champion has not yet reacted to the opponent’s provocations, preferring to remain silent and not waste energy on the pre-match trash talk.

Recall that the fight between Petr Yan and Merab Dvalishvili will be the main event of the next event of the world’s strongest league, which will be held on March 11 in Las Vegas.
