    Just wondering , has Dana said anything about the sterling situation ?

    Surely hes aware the guy is the most hated man on the roster , and a paper champ that will never be a fan favorite nor defend the strap .

    Wonder if stripping him is on his mind ? Dana seems like the type that would pressure him into fighting sooner then later or strip him ...

    Or he knows the rematch will do big numbers , due to all the hate for sterling .....

    Has he commented at all ?

    Sterling is so angry about this situation. He pretends like he doesnt care but im sure all the hate he gets daily is crushing him inside.

    Honestly if Aljo is going to sit out for 6 months, they should just make an interim title fight between Moraes/Yan, winner fights Sterling.

    There is no need to hold up a division like when Conor won the belt from Eddie and trained for Mayweather, especially at a time when we have 5 T10 Bantamweights in their prime.

    EDIT: Just saw Font beat Moraes so he should fight Yan, Sandhagen is fighting TJ in May.

    UFC can't set a precedent of stripping champions who win by DQ. Aljo carefully has said he'll fight Yan when he's done with this little surgery.

    I actually like Sterling.

    He's a winner and everyone else are just haters.

    Should an interim title fight not be between Cory and Petr? Why Moraes?

    Dude Moraes has been knocked out I'm 3 of his last 4 fights. Sandhagen is next up so I'm guessing you mean Sandhagen vs Yan for the interim

    Dana usually gives champs a year to defend. And the controversy between Aljo/Yan has brought massive interest to the rematch. I doubt he will be in a rush to stripe anyone

    there is 2 important facts here. 1. sterling was clearly losing. 2. sterling 100 pct won that fight. so the fact that he wants to be able to work on some shit and come in at 100 pct health wise should not be frowned on.

    Sandhagen is fighting TJ, but yes he should be the #1 contender
    Just saw Rob Font has a 3 fight win steak and beat Moraes, so Font could fight Yan

    Dana only cares about $$, not honor. I bet Dana wants this shit to fester for as long as it takes to get peak interest in the rematch. They've even been giving Sterling commentary gigs after this shit started, probably to shine more attention on the situation and milk it for all it's worth.

    Sterling is going to be remembered as a rat for all eternity. The money matters more right now, but as he ages he's going to realize what a mistake he's made.

    Aljos next fight will be a fight will be a fight night card to ensure no ppv points. And I'm sure as hell certain if his injury last longer than a year he will be stripped of the title and will have to run off at least 3-5 fight win streak against top competition to get another shot

    Having a surgery is enough for them to make an interim.
