The date of the duel of the Russian MMA fighter Petr Yan against the American Aljaimein Sterling has become known.
According to ESPN journalist Brett Okamoto, the fight will take place on March 5 at the UFC 272 tournament. The tournament will take place in Las Vegas (Nevada, USA).
Last March at UFC 259, Sterling defeated Yan via disqualification for an illegal knee to the head in the fourth round. Their rematch was scheduled to take place in October at UFC 267 in Abu Dhabi, but Sterling was injured and pulled out of the fight. Corey Sandhagen came on as a substitute, and the result of the confrontation was Jan’s victory by unanimous decision.
