    Regardless its like clockwork that everytime a fighter wins the title they start finding injuries restricting them from fighting

    He's planning to fight in the fall. Fighters get injured and need time to recover. It's normal. Sherdog needs to relax in regards to Aljo.

    I hate it when this happens with new champs. And it looks a little fishy given the circumstances. But, there’s nothing anybody can do, unless the UFC wants to schedule an interim title fight.

    Lol. He said he'll fight in August, september, or October.

    Hell, some champs take more time off than that when they're not injured

    Fuck Aljo about to get more white space and return a knee straight to Yan's face.

    That neck is going to snap due to the whiplash caused by Yan’s fist nuking Sterling’s face

    Neck, shoulder and knee injuries are brutal.

    He might not be the same ever again.

    Which is bad because he wasnt doing so hot again Yan.

    Actually he said
    So what if he doesn't heal real quick and there's a setback? Those 5 months can easily become 6-7-8 or more months.

    I doubt we'll see the rematch this year.
