Aljamain Sterling recently reclaimed the bantamweight throne after winning his fight against Petr Yan in the main event of UFC 274. He’s now taking a well-deserved break from the fighting game.
Speaking about this week’s main fighter, he tweeted that Vicente Luque and Pedro Munhoz have similar fighting styles. Pedro Munhoz is a bantamweight contender who recently lost to Jose Aldo. Vicente suffered a decision loss to Belal Muhammad in the UFC Vegas Main Event. Belal Muhammad controlled the fight from start to finish. Belal Muhammad defied the odds against Vicente as he was a strong underdog.

“This is a sick, sick man” – Aljamain Sterling claims he feels fat and gross after weighing 176lbs exactly one week after his fight with Petr Yan
Aljamain Sterling silenced his critics and several MMA fans after taking home the bantamweight belt following his decision win over Petr Yan. It is a well known fact that almost every fighter goes through a weight loss process prior to their fight. Aljamain had to drop his weight to 135 pounds to take on Petr in the UFC 274 main event.
In a video posted by Sterling, he claims he feels gross after weighing over 170 pounds, which happens to be the welterweight limit. He wrote “I feel fat and gross. My cheeks are so big. I don’t recognize myself. The diet starts tomorrow.” Aljamain is now preparing for the second title defense. He was most willing to admit that he plans to interview TJ Dillashaw next MMAFightingonSBN. It will be interesting to see how TJ handles Aljamain’s grappling-heavy style when this fight takes place in the future.
