    Let's cut to the chase. I don't even wanna discuss the whole Sterling thing. He's gonna decapitate Aljo is a violent, merciless and timely manner.

    That said, who the hell has anything for Petr Yan right now? And I say this as the ultimate Aldo fan. The guy is DAMN GOOD. BW is actually starting to feel a bit shallow when I think about it.

    Idk homies. The man looks unfuckwithable right now..

    Aljo is a really good fighter. I expect Yan to beat him but it isn't a given. Let's have this discussion in a few months?

    Well, you might be counting Aljo out, but I'm not.

    I do think that Font, Sandhagen, and TJ have solid chances of beating him.

    TJ and/or Sandhagen could possibly beat him.

    Prime TJ could give him a run for his money, but I think Yan’s toughest match is Volkanovski at FW

    Sterling embarrassed himself in that fight on several levels.

    At 135 there isn't anyone that can beat Yan in a straight up fight barring some kind of fluke KO or injury

    I think Yan at 145 would struggle though. There are guys at 145 who would have a size and strength advantage. Hell, Holloway would laugh at Yan's aggressiveness.

    I think he wipes out Sterling and then sits on top of his division for several years.

    He will get old and competition is tight. He is a fighter that takes a lot of damage even though he dishes out beautiful violence as well

    I mean yes that's true but if we look at the matchup objectively, there really isn't a path to victory for Aljo.

    Yan is the better striker.
    Yan tooled Aljo in any grappling attempts Aljo made.
    Aljo also gassed.

    There are no guarantees in MMA, buddy.
