Petr Yan and Alzamine Sterling engage in a Twitter tussle ahead of their fight

On Sunday, UFC bantamweight champion Petr Yan and No. 1 division fighter Alzman Sterling traded shots on social media. It began with Yan posting a clip of his training act with the caption, “Aljo Foo Hai *** D”, which apparently caught the funk master’s attention, and therefore an argument. The exchange was in relation to their upcoming fight and some final warnings were issued from both sides.

Both fighters have an impressive record to perform and both are major forces in the 135-pound division, indicating that this is an equally contested battle.
