Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling may be nixed from the UFC 256 card.
This should be considered to be a RUMOR for now, but TASS is reporting that the bantamweight title fight is off the card.
This could explain why flyweight champ Deiveson Figueiredo has already verbally agreed to face top contender Brandon Moreno next month at UFC 256.
Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling Could Be Off UFC 256 Card
“Per Russian outlet TASS, the bantamweight title bout between Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling may be getting rescheduled. That would explain the urgency to book Figueiredo vs. Moreno despite the addition of a perfectly suitable co-main in Ferguson/Oliveira.”
The UFC has yet to confirm this fight is off, but the event takes place on December 12th.
