    Got his fucking ass whooped, spent half the fight panic wrestling and throwing wild strikes. As soon as he found a way out because he was going to get killed in there he did some very bad acting saying that he's "dizzy" while he was just lying down panting on the canvas like a bitch. Absolutely pathetic and disgraceful and terrible decision of the UFC.

    How is that even a downed strike? He was clearly standing up. Fucking stupid.

    Worst champion in history. He has displaced Serra now for me, and that’s quite an achievement.

    Lol 'clearly standing up'. Delusional.

    I do agree Sterling was acting though. But who gives a fuck? Throwing a knee like that you 100% deserve to get DQ'd.

    I don't care about a minor technicality. That man is standing up. Why the fuck is throwing a knee on a man that's literally standing up illegal?

    The referee asked him if he wanted a free win in a fight he was obviously gonna lose. How can you blame him for making the easy choice? He's gonna get a rematch, he's gonna go into the fight as champion meaning a much bigger payday and he's gonna get the win bonus, which knowing the UFC pay structure, is a lot. No shame in his choice - he would have been a fool not to take it actually.

    Because this is a sport. Not some street fight on the streets of Moscow.

    Yan was beginning to dominate, there was no need to throw the knee. He had time to think and still threw it. I wanted Yan to win but by no means is this Sterling’s fault. He doesn’t owe the guy that kneed him whilst he was down anything.

    That said I don’t like when fighters sit in dangerous positions like this to play to the rules, almost baited him into it but Yan should know better.

    Yes. Because in whatever way fans try to twist it they won it in the cage and wasn’t handed to them after being beaten from post to post. Same goes for any fluke or one off wins like.

    He had a serious nervous energy to him. Falling over himself, not pacing himself properly, throwing wild flashy shit when he was already slowing down etc etc. He was very lucky that Yan gave him that out.

    I didnt even know Yan has this many fans before he decided to lose his belt by illegally kneeing his opponent

    It must really suck to be as dumb as the guy who started this thread

    Maybe if Yan hadn't cheated none of this wouldn't have happened. Losing the title seems like a good punishment, clearly Aljo was rocked and if it continued he would have got KO'd.
