Abu Dhabi is currently treating one of the greatest UFC competitions – UFC 267. Petr Yan had a tense battle with Cory Sandhagen, but by the judgment of the judges, he won. We can recognize that this competitor is doing great in the super lightweight division, and for sure now there is no stronger fighter than him. This confirms his title. As a result of this confrontation, Petr Yan was able to receive the UFC interim bantamweight title.
2021 is a great and rewarding year for this fighter. It was during this year that he was able to prove that he is undoubtedly the super lightweight champion. The only thing that separates him from this title is the title itself. He was never able to take that title back in March against Aljamain Sterling. Due to one wrong kick, the judges disqualified him.
Even now, with all his speeches and looks, he shows that who is a real champion. In a recent press commentary, he stated that he is not afraid of anyone and is ready to compete against any challenger, even against former UFC super lightweight champions.
We can see his readiness from the recent fight. All of Petr Yan’s movements were smooth and calm. He stuck to the strategy constantly and didn’t panic at all.
