According to the recent report of MMA Island and famous MMA host Ariel Helwani, Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling’s 135 title fight is canceled without a proper explanation.
According to the tweet of Helwani, there is not an injury or anything like that and Petr Yan has decided to pull off from the fight for his personal issues. Yan and Sterlin would have been fighting in the 135 title fight in UFC 256 but unfortunately, UFC did not reveal any new date yet either.
Here is what Helwani wrote:
“The 12/12 Petr Yan x Aljamain Sterling 135 title fight is off, per sources. No new date yet. Undisclosed reasons for Yan, sources say. Not an injury, though. So, 256 is back to only having 1 title fight on the card: Figueiredo x Moreno. First reported by MMA Island.”
