“Not My Fault That He Got His Knee Ripped Off”- Aljamain Sterling Rips Into Petr Yan for Calling TJ Dillashaw Out

Petr Yan and Cory Sandhagen went toe-to-toe over five rounds at UFC 267. ‘No Mercy’ and ‘Sandman’ are considered two of the very best strikers at 135-pounds and they proved exactly why at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. At the end of the five rounds, it was Yan who had done enough to secure a win over Sandhagen to set up a title unification bout against his long-time rival Aljamain Sterling. 

Sterling has been out for a while as he recovers from neck surgery. In a recent interview, Ariel Helwani asked Sterling if he was worried about TJ Dillashaw getting a title shot ahead of him if he is able to make a comeback before him. 

‘Funkmaster’ replied saying, “F**k TJ. F**k TJ. Let TJ wait. That b**ch a** motherf***er can wait. Just like that. The guy is a f***ing cheater. He had a close fight, a lot of people still don’t think he won the fight. Hugging another man by the waist, at least I actually go for submissions. I think there are people that deserve to unify the belts that have the belts right? Am I crazy?.”

Sterling continued, “Let TJ wait. It is not my fault that he got his knee ripped off in that fight with Sandhagen that is on him. So it is what it is, he’s gotta wait just like everybody else has to wait their turn. He waited two years already right? He can wait a couple more months”

Aljamain Sterling vs Petr Yan- the fight to make?

The rematch between Sterling and Yan was set to take place at UFC 267. However, ‘Funkmaster’ had not fully recovered from his surgery and pulled out of the fight, which is why the UFC set up an interim title fight between Sandhagen and Yan. 

TJ Dillashaw will be out for a few months following his knee injury and Sterling stated that he would be ready to fight again early next year. Therefore, a rematch between Yan and Sterling is the most viable option at this point in time.
