Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Petr Yan’s quick time in UFC has been remarkably spectacular.
In lower than two years’ time, Yan has gained six bouts contained in the Octagon. Greater than that, the Russian Grasp of Sport in each boxing and MMA has largely dominated his competitors, choosing up three knockout wins within the course of. At 27 years of age, Yan has the potential to be a Bantamweight title menace for a very long time to come back.
Maybe that’s why he’s opened as such a big favourite reverse Jose Aldo at -240 per BestFightOdds.
A bout between the 2 is presently focused for the vacant Bantamweight title later within the 12 months, probably over Summer season. Jose Aldo is technically winless at 135-pounds, however the Brazilian legend arguably gained his Bantamweight debut towards former title challenger Marlon Moraes. No matter your opinion on the choice itself, Aldo proved that he was a viable menace at Bantamweight and nonetheless had one thing left within the tank.
Briefly, the bout is a particular step up for Yan, however odds makers seem assured it’s one he’ll deal with effectively.

The Reebok deal could also be coming to an finish, nevertheless it doesn’t appear to be fighters will have the ability to symbolize sponsors contained in the Octagon any time quickly. Personally, I had been hoping for a PFL-esque compromise: permitting one small sponsorship per athlete.
When requested if fighters can be allowed to have sponsors within the cage once more, his response was, “The fighters receives a commission. The fighters receives a commission for no matter sponsor we’ve, they get a chunk of that. They usually can have no matter sponsors they need outdoors the cage.”
