Yang Responds to UFC Decision to Postpone Sterling Fight to April

Russian Petr Yan commented on the UFC decision to postpone the fight with American Aljamain Sterling to April.

“The postponement of the fight is the decision of the UFC,” the press service quotes Yan. “Archangel Michael”. — Let’s spend a little more time at the training camp, it’s not a problem for me.”

The fighter also spoke about the venue of the fight.

“I’m not sure that Aljamaina there will be some advantage that the fight will take place in the USA. There are many more people supporting me there than him,” he said.

Previously it was reported that the second fight between Jan and Sterling could be rescheduled from March 5 to April 9. The first duel between the fighters took place in March 2021. Then the Russian lost to the American due to a violation of the rules – a knee strike to an opponent in the “parterre” position. He later defeated Corey Sandhagen by decision for the interim UFC title.
