What is next for Aljamain Sterling, Petr Yan, and Sean O’Malley?

The three men in question are arguably three of the biggest names at 135-pounds in the UFC. After an unexpected loss against Marlon Vera, ‘Sugar’ bounced back to the win column with a stunning knockout win over Thomas Almeida. This further cemented his claim as one of the best in the division. ‘Sugar’ will take on Louis Smolka in a few weeks’ time at UFC 264 on the same card as Conor McGregor.

Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan will without a doubt face each other in their next fight given the way the first fight ended. Following his title win, Sterling underwent surgery which will keep him out of action for a long time. ‘Funkmaster’ stated that he expects himself to fight around August, September, or October. However, at this point in time, nothing is confirmed.
