UFC bantamweight contenders Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan are fired up.
After UFC bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo announcing his retirement at UFC 249, Sterling (18-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) and Yan (14-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) voiced their enthusiasm in an exchange on Twitter.
“Dana White you have two beasts, ready to put on (a) show for the vacant 135lb title,” Sterling wrote. “Petr Yan I know you want this just as much as I do. I am ready whenever!”
Within minutes, Yan responded, declaring his agreement in the terms Sterling laid out. “You know I’m in! Let’s do it,” Yan responded.
