Aljo has to defend the belt against Yan to make the belt "legitimate" (whatever that means). That being said people who are saying that you shouldnt be able to win a belt off a DQ are WWE fans.

Honestly I find it hard to believe that a UFC Champion "forgets" the rules ( to be fair he was concused and people make all kind of weird choices than but still it seems odd). Besides that I´m very happy the gave the strap to Sterling simply because if a champion can´t follow the rules he isn´t a champion. I mean one could argue that it is lucky for sterling to win the belt cause he just happend to be in the cage with Yan when he fouled him. But first of all he had to endure that foul and secondly if a champion does something else that is stupid (like trying to box against a kickboxer when you basically only ever won by arm bar ), the Titel still is passed although it is "lucky" the champ wasn´t as good as normal that given day.

Americans who are on the side of Sterling, you amaze me. You think and speak as if Peter the Great had done something terrible. And if Sterling had raised his knees from the floor by 3 centimeters and Ian would have hit him with the same knee and knocked him out. You Americans would probably admire this sight and shout wow wow. Greetings from Russia) I write through a translator

Lost all respect for petr for how he is handling this. It’s HIS fault that he’s not the champ. As a champion he should know better and he made the mistake. Aljo IS the champ whether you idiots accept it or not.

Too many people focusing on Sterling and not the fact that the Bantamweight Champ threw one of the most obvious and illegal knees in UFC history. Talk about bad fight IQ. Lost the belt by stupidity

@Enemy he may have been physically able to continue but he also may have been seriously compromised, why on earth would he choose to continue a world championship fight if he can't fight to the best of his abilities. I don't get why Sterling is the one getting hate when Yan is the one who threw a blatant and intentional foul.
Enemy Месяц назад
@DiscoGypsyFish Aljo was definitely playing it up. It was the smart move to take the belt and money but still he could have continued after a 5 minute break. He didn't want any more abuse.

Sterling sold out. he took a chapter form WWE. Sterling could have shook that off and continued to fight. he found away out and took it. The brotha is trash in my book for pulling a marks move.

Win, lose or DQ, his tone is equally emotionless. Fedor kind of thing. Petr is a stone cold killer, he was on the rise and about to obliterate Aljo before that silly mistake. Aljo did very respectable efforts though.
