    Don't think people can say he ducked the fight, looks like the UFC is at fault for trying to rush the fight before Arjo has recovered enough from his surgery.

    Update: official statement from Arjo:

    Yan shouldn’t have to fight someone else to get his rematch for the belt

    strip Aljo, and he can have an immediate title shot when he’s ready

    But Sherdog keyboard warriors already convinced me that he is a duck and only pulled out because he’s scared.

    Just mob mentality.

    He wasn't loved or hated before the Yan fight. It's also like people forget that YAN THREW A DISGUSTINGLY ILLEGAL BLOW AND KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING.

    They had a weird fight with a weird ending, Aljo got the belt on a technicality, and people hate him for feeding his family that championship money.

    I would have done the same thing to feed my family, regardless of what anyone thinks.

    Dana is gonna pull another interim belt outta his ass but either way whoever Yan is fighting should be for a belt. Call it interim if you want, we know who the champ really is.

    Lol I'm not defending the duck but you realize their is a MASSIVE difference between some light hearted sparring helping a teammate warm up before a fight and fighting Petr Yan for 5 rounds in a title fight.

    Suuuuuure,
    why schedule the fight if he was’t cleared? On top of light sparring with Merab, this is all just a bad look.

    He was warming a guy up before a fight. Not exactly very demanding.
    Some of you should be put on concussion protocol.

    Creating an interim belt to hold off for the guy, that won the belt by DQ with no title defenses....ya that seems a little off.
