According to UFC president Dana White, the promotion is targeting the Sterling (20-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) vs. Yan (15-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) rematch for October, which would line up with UFC 267 on Oct. 30, which is expected for Abu Dhabi.

Making that type of travel isn’t attractive to Sterling, especially when the organization has events targeted for his home state of New York in November, as well as a December show in Las Vegas, where he currently lives.

The Pendulum That Never Swung Back

  The Pendulum That Never Swung Back America’s post-9/11 national-security overreach remains in effect to this day.This story is comforting; it makes sense of America’s reactions to crises throughout the country’s history. Indeed, I’ve repeatedly used this story to explain America’s post-9/11 policies even as I’ve played a small part in it. From 2013 to 2017, I was an adviser to the special envoy in the State Department’s Guantánamo-closure office. Since 2017, I have served as an attorney in the Department of Defense’s Military Commissions Defense Organization, on the team that represents Ammar al Baluchi—one of the men at Guantánamo facing the death penalty before the 9/11 military commission.

Aljamain Sterling thinks Petr Yan intentionally cheated in their bout and shouldn’ t get an immediate rematch . Sterling (20-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) captured the bantamweight title from Yan at UFC 259 after he was struck with an illegal knee which rendered him unable to continue. Yan (15-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) Sterling has been accused of acting following the knee, and received criticism for posing with his belt on his teammates’ social media posts. Prior to the fight ending in Round 4, two judges had Yan up two rounds to one, whereas one judge had Sterling up, but the momentum was unquestionably starting to

A rematch between Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan is in the works “as soon as possible” after Yan was disqualified at UFC 259. That’s according to UFC President Dana White , who could do little other than call for a do- over following the unfortunate ending to the bantamweight title fight on Saturday Yan had taken control of momentum as the fight went into deep waters and Sterling visibly tired. As the challenger rested on one knee after an exchange, the Russian paused for a moment before unloading a blatantly illegal knee to the head. Sterling immediately hit the canvas, badly hurt, and the fight was

“To be 100 percent honest with you, I love the date, but I don’t love the location,” Sterling told MMA Junkie Radio on Thursday. “Mainly because of the hours we would have to fight at. I just had one of my worst performances – maybe not the worst – but I had some hiccups on fight day because I didn’t realize how much into the day I fought. … It would’ve been nice to fight in New York or Vegas again. But Oct. 30, I’m good with that.”

Although Sterling vocalized his opposition to the location, he said he’s not willing to make a hard stance. He admitted he’s had his spats with the UFC brass before but doesn’t want to start another one with White over his lack of desire to travel to the Middle East.

“I think you guys know how it goes with telling Dana White no, so I don’t think there’s much negotiation here,” Sterling said. “If I’m being 100 percent honest and transparent, I don’t think they’re going to give me an opportunity to negotiate that. I’m not looking to get in a pissing war with Dana again. So if that’s what they want, that’s what they want.”

England penalty controversy: Did Sterling dive? Why no VAR? Laser pointer on Schmeichel?

  England penalty controversy: Did Sterling dive? Why no VAR? Laser pointer on Schmeichel? England's game-winning goal that sent it to the Euro 2021 final was the subject of fierce debate: Was it a dive by Raheem Sterling? How about the laser pointed at Kasper Schmeichel? And the second ball on the field?A penalty kick called by Dutch referee Danny Makkelie in the 104th minute of stoppage time ultimately proved the difference in a 2-1 England victory over Denmark at Wembley Stadium. He judged Raheem Sterling to have been fouled in the box by Denmark's Joakim Maehle, but there were a few issues with the play (cued up in the video below).

Nearly two weeks from their controversial fight at UFC 259, there is no sign that the war of words between newly-crowned bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan is set to slow down. UFC president Dana White indicated in the post-fight press conference that he intends to rebook the Yan vs. Sterling fight as soon as possible to bring some closure to the keenly contested finish of their first meeting - and something tell us that we may have to get used to further Twitter bickering from the two elite bantamweight for a few more months.

An entertaining fight between UFC bantamweight champion Petr Yan and challenger Aljamain Sterling was brought to a screeching halt when Yan inexplicably did this: This content is not available due to your privacy preferences. The aftermath: Sterling being unable to stand, doctors examining the Jamaican American fighter in a silent arena, a crying Sterling receiving Yan 's belt and tossing it to the ground. It's probably not hyperbole to call it the least satisfying UFC title win in history, and the situation stunned just about everyone watching.

Regardless of where it happens, though, Sterling said he’s looking forward to getting his hands on Yan again. The pair had a highly controversial first meeting, with Yan getting disqualified for an illegal knee and thus giving up the belt to Sterling.

Sterling underwent neck surgery in the aftermath of the fight but said he’s days away from getting clearance to get back into training, and will be ready to fight in the fall.

“I don’t keep grudges, but when someone is a sh*tty person, I just don’t want to be around you,” Sterling said. “So, I’m all about good energy, good vibrations. At the end of the day we’re going to have a fight. We’re going to go out there and settle the score, and we’ll be able to figure it out. If we’re meant to be friends or meant to be cordial, then we’ll do that. But at the end of the day I have no respect for this guy right now. The guy talks so much sh*t for something that he did, and I get the backlash for it, which is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”
