Petr Yan: Record, Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Petr Yan became the bantamweight champion within two years of joining UFC. The Russian fighter has dominated his competition throughout his career.  Yan started his journey through boxing.

At a very young age, he would secretly follow his elder brother to a boxing gym. After completing eight years in boxing, he achieved the rank of ‘Master of Sport’ in Boxing at 141 lbs or 64 kg. He also holds a degree in degree in Physical Culture and Sport from Siberian Federal University.

In 2013, Yan made a spectacular MMA debut. He knocked out his opponent, Murad Bakiev, in the third round. He continued his win streak until he met Magomed Magomedov. Magomedov handed Yan his first and only pro MMA defeat. Nevertheless, Yan avenged his loss one fight later.

‘No Mercy’ made his UFC debut in 2018. He made his presence felt as soon as he entered the octagon. Yan disposed of Teruto Ishihara in one round via a brutal knockout. He continued racking up wins over top contenders like Douglas Silva de Andrade, John Dodson, and Jimmy Riviera.

Fans got to know Yan at UFC 245. The young and hungry lion was matched up against an aging Urijah Faber.  Yan used this opportunity to put himself on the map. The Russian dominated Faber and eventually finished him with a head kick in the third round.

Petr Yan: UFC Champion

In his next fight, the UFC matched Petr Yan against former featherweight champion Jose Aldo for the vacant bantamweight title. The bout was surrounded by controversy, as many believed that Aldo did not belong in the same cage as Yan.

Yan started slow but eventually took over the fight and pummeled Jose Aldo into oblivion, claiming the vacant UFC bantamweight championship. However, many critics believed that it was a late stoppage.

Petr Yan: Achievements

Besides being the reigning UFC bantamweight champion, Yan has won one Fight of the Night bonus against Jin Soo Son, and one Performance of the Night bonus against Urijah Faber. He was also the Absolute Championship Berkut bantamweight champion and Grand Prix winner.

Petr Yan: Fighting Style

Yan starts slow and increases his pace as the fight progresses. He tries to get a read on his opponent in the opening rounds. And once he has the range down, he increases the volume from the second half of the second round. Yan commits to most of his strikes with ill intentions.

As far as the ground game is concerned, Yan is a blue belt in BJJ.

Yan may have never wrestled professionally, but he has a solid wrestling game. His wrestling coach, Frank Hickman, said that Yan is a fast learner and has incredible athleticism.

Petr Yan is probably one of the best boxers in the bantamweight division. However, since he fights in a boxing stance, he leaves himself vulnerable to leg kicks.

Petr Yan: Net Worth and Salary

Petr Yan has earned around $871,500 from his UFC career. He earned $230,000 for his championship bout against Jose Aldo. It is noteworthy that this does not include undisclosed bonuses.

Yan’s estimated net worth is around $1 million.
