Aljamain Sterling, Petr Yan call for vacant UFC title fight


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.
