Garbrandt, a former UFC 135-pound champ, snapped a three-fight dropping skid with a spectacular knockout over Raphael Assuncao final month at UFC 250. Yan (15-1 MMA, 7-Zero UFC) claimed the vacant bantamweight title with a fifth-round stoppage win over Jose Aldo earlier this month at UFC 251.
Garbrandt wasn’t impressed, poking on the champion’s efficiency by calling him too sluggish. “No Love” then responded to a fan suggestion that he ought to combat Yan subsequent, saying that the 2 have “unfinished enterprise” in reference to a backstage altercation at UFC 245.
However it seems that Garbrandt (12-Three MMA, 7-Three UFC) has diverted his consideration again to the thought of dropping all the way down to flyweight, displaying curiosity in a possible combat with newly topped UFC 125-pound champ Deiveson Figueiredo.
The best way Yan sees it, Garbrandt is dodging him and ripped him for eager to compete for the flyweight title as a substitute.
That second when No Chin was strolling to take a piss however ended peeing himself. You solely bark however don’t chunk and now you operating away to flyweight division. Shut up whereas I’ll combat contenders who’ve balls to problem me.
All indicators are pointing to Aljamain Sterling being subsequent in line for Yan, however UFC president Dana White hasn’t confirmed that Sterling is subsequent. There was hypothesis that Garbrandt may have been the rationale why the UFC was tentative to dub Sterling the No. 1 contender, however with Garbrandt seeking to transfer all the way down to 125, Yan may find yourself dealing with Sterling in any case.
