“Where does Aljo rank in the P4P rankings? He should be in the top five, ”the American fighter said in the next episode of his podcast. “Wolf and Izzy are definitely there. Like John Jones with Islam Makhachev. Aljo defended his title. Who else has defended his championship belt so many times? Leon Edwards did it once, and Jamal Hill hasn’t had that opportunity yet.”
“I will beat Aljo and top the rankings of the best fighters in the UFC. I will jump over everyone and be in first place. You have already seen how I, being outside the top ten, become the first number, and I am ready to repeat it”
At the moment, Aljamain Sterling is ranked sixth in the P4P UFC rankings, while Sean O’Malley is not yet among the best fighters in the organization, regardless of weight.
Recall that the bantamweight title fight between Sterling and O’Malley will be the main event of the UFC 292 tournament, which will be held August 19 in Boston.
