Dana White Rips Aljamain Sterling Vs Petr Yan DecisionAfter reviewing the Aljamain Sterling vs Petr-Yan fight‚ UFC president Dana White ripped into the judges. He also took issue with Khamzat Chimaev's jab and Teruto Ishihara's performance. But perhaps most importantly‚ White wants to put the Sterling-Yan trilogy on hold. In his article‚ White blasts the judging decisions in the Aljamain Sterling vs. Petr Yan fight.
Dana White criticises judging in Aljamain Sterling vs Petr Yan fightUFC president Dana White has criticized the judging in the Aljamain Sterling vs Petr Yán fight. Yan was disqualified for using his knee. Despite this‚ Sterling won the title. Two judges scored the fight 48-47 for Sterling and one judge scored it 48-49 for Yan. White thinks the judges got it wrong and criticized the scoring after the bout. After hearing the results‚ Yan requested a rematch. The UFC president agreed to the rematch. Yan's lone victory in the first fight was not justified and has called for a review. But he's not the only one to criticise the judging. TJ Dillashaw also spoke out after the fight. The former UFC champion believes that the match-up will be a third chance for the two fighters to face off again. White believes the fight was arbitrated too politically and both judges were biased. So while Yan will likely be able to fight for the title in a rematch‚ White is not backing it up. He wants Yan to fight a rival who's been his main competitor for years.
Khamzat Chimaev's jabThe pound-for-pound rise of Khamzat Chimaev has caught the attention of UFC boss Dana White. Chimaev's name means wolf in Chechnyan‚ the country's native language. He refers to himself as Borz in the UFC‚ a name he adopted from a childhood nickname. The Russian-born Swede is one of Dana White's favorite employees. Khamzat Chimaev is the latest fighter to make headlines. After beating Gilbert Burns last month‚ Khamzat Chimaev was expected to face either Kamaru Usman or Gilbert Burns on Saturday night. However‚ White publicly acknowledged Magny's interest in a fight with Khamzat Chimaev. Though neither man is a world champion‚ both men have plenty of experience in the ring. Khamzat's jab at White has earned him a place on Dana White's watch list. He's undefeated‚ and has won three straight fights. While he has not won a title fight‚ he's won all of his previous bouts. And he's only got better‚ as he continues to improve with every fight. Despite his young age‚ Khamzat Chimaev is already one of the most respected athletes in the UFC. He won UFC 273 over Gilbert Burns on the main card. Although he lost the fight in the second round‚ his win was unanimous and he improved to 11-0. Chimaev's career continues to rise‚ and he'll face former world welterweight champion Gilbert Burns at UFC 274 this Saturday.
Teruto Ishihara fightAfter a highly-debated first round‚ Dana White has railed against the controversial Aljamain Sterling vs Petre Yan decision. The decision seemed to go in Sterling's favor‚ as the two appeared to be evenly matched throughout. Sterling did‚ however‚ dominate the fight on the ground‚ and the judges were clearly not impressed by his performance. The fight between Yan and Sterling caused a huge stir on Twitter‚ as many UFC fighters questioned the legitimacy of the decision. In a post-fight press conference‚ Sterling and Yan's team shared a crude meme about Yan. Others included Cody Garbrandt‚ Henry Cejudo‚ Josh Thomson‚ Darren Till‚ and T.J. Dillashaw. While it was an incredibly controversial decision‚ it was still a tough one to call. Sterling is the interim lightweight belt holder‚ while Yan is the hot favorite. Yan won the last match between the two fighters‚ but was disqualified due to an illegal knee to Sterling's head. After winning the interim belt‚ Sterling sent a message to Yan‚ and White's rant about the controversial decision is an excellent sign. This fight was a rematch of the UFC's infamous Aljamain Sterling vs Petr Yán decision‚ which saw Yan lose the bantamweight title to the Russian. Sterling‚ meanwhile‚ won the fight via submission and will now face TJ Dillashaw in the next event. And if the fight isn't the one you're waiting for‚ don't worry. Sterling's recent comments on Twitter are all the proof you need.
Mark Madsen undefeatedThe controversy over the Aljamain Sterling vs Petr Yán decision is a big reason why the UFC has been under fire lately. Not only did Yan lose his bantamweight title in an incredibly controversial manner‚ but other fighters were quick to question his honor.

UFC President Dana White ripped the controversial Aljamain Sterling vs Pett Yan decision. The fight was a rematch of the Aljamain Sterling vs Petr Yan bout‚ and the winner of that fight was Aljamain Sterling. Yan will now face TJ Dillashaw next. However‚ Yan has yet to respond to the controversy by saying that he needs to wait until he gets another shot at the bantamweight title. The 'paper champion' vs'real' champion fight is a case in point. Yan felt like he was the loser because the fight was unfair. Sterling‚ on the other hand‚ wanted to prove that he was not just a 'paper champion.' He had an outstanding ground game and landed solid shots during the championship rounds.
Josh Fremd vs Anthony 'Fluffy' HernandezDana White has taken a swipe at the UFC's controversial decision in the Aljamain Sterling vs. Petr Yan fight. The decision was controversial because Yan was accused of acting out his heel injury during the fight. Yan even went on Twitter to apologize for the knee injury. Sterling also seemed bothered by Yan's upright posture during the fight. After the three-minute discussion‚ the fight was stopped. Yan‚ however‚ lost his belt. UFC president Dana White is upset by the decision. While the official scorecards show that Yan won‚ he doesn't agree with the decision. In fact‚ he thinks that the judges blew it. Yan‚ 29‚ won the first two rounds‚ but Sterling won the second and third rounds. After the fight ended‚ White said Yan must wait for another title shot at 135lbs before he can make another title defense. Jon Jones sent his congratulations to the new champ‚ while Dana White ripped the judging in the main event of UFC 273. The fight between Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan was controversial because of the judging. One judge awarded Sterling a 48-47 victory while the other gave Yan a 49-49 decision. The rematch was then decided by disqualification.
TJ Dillashaw testing positive for erythropoietinAfter watching the controversial UFC lightweight belt bout‚ the interim champion Aljamain Sterling has come out a much better fighter. He is on a six-fight winning streak‚ and is in great shape. However‚ his last bout with Yan ended prematurely due to an illegal knee to Sterling's head. During the press conference for the UFC 264 event‚ Sterling spoke about the fight and it was during that press conference that Sterling's microphone cut out. After the fight‚ Dana White ripped the judges for blowing the decision. The American fighter won the second and third rounds with the help of an illegal knee in the fourth round‚ but Yan was able to respond and win the fight. The 29-year-old Yan called the decision a blown opportunity‚ claiming that Sterling was robbed of a win. The fight has been delayed until UFC 273‚ and the two men are likely to meet again. While social media and the media were divided on the decision‚ many agreed that Yan should have won‚ based on the first round. The decision was widely criticized on Twitter‚ and even the UFC company president‚ Bill White‚ said Yan should have been awarded a hand raise. White's comments came as a surprise‚ and they were aimed at clarifying the controversial fight.
