Recently, Yan retweeted the tweet of Sterling where the latter said he can’t wait to slap the s**t out of him. The former champion said, “When? In 2023? Just admit you are terrified to enter the octagon with me again. Your a** is getting stripped, p***y”.

This isn’t all, it is expected that they will have a rematch later this year. Their fight left an unpleasant taste on everyone’s part, be it with fighters or the audience.

Sterling would be eager to add legitimacy to his title hold after the DQ, and Yan would want to claim back his championship. He was dominating before the unfortunate thing happened.

The match had several questionable moments. Yan and his team landed in hot waters when several people accused him of intentionally landing the knee. Some questions were raised for Sterling as well for possibly faking his injury and celebrating his DQ victory.

Although, it seems Sterling will be out for a while as possible neck surgery looms around him. But would probably return against Yan, as they have some unfinished business to settle. Only time will tell when possibly they would fight again. Who do you think would come out victorious when they fight again?
