Effectively, now we know why Dana White was so eager to get Deiveson Figueiredo to defend his title all over again in 21 times at UFC 256.
The pay-per-check out occasion was initially established to be headlined by bantamweight winner Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling. But now ESPN is reporting that the 135 pound title combat is off the card for ‘undisclosed factors.’ All that’s being stated is that ‘Yan is not injured.’ Hmm.
Yan has not occur out on social media to demonstrate the circumstance … which isn’t astonishing considering that his final tweet came again on November 3rd. But his opponent Aljamain Sterling is a great deal a lot more energetic on Twitter and basically stay blogged the predicament from rumor to confirmation.
Anything happens for a cause. I hope every little thing is excellent with you and your family members .@PetrYanUFC We will settle our business enterprise when you can be 100% centered and all set to give the fans the very best show we can.
See you shortly.
