Petr Yan has once again called out Henry Cejudo.
Yan (14-1) defeated Urijah Faber by knockout at UFC 245, after which “Triple C” called out Jose Aldo (who lost to Marlon Moraes the same night, by split decision). Yan responded on social media, saying: “Don’t allow triple clown [to] turn our sport into [a] circus.”
Yan, in turn, suggested that him and Cejudo fight on the Khabib vs. Ferguson card:
Yan has had an impressive run, scoring five knockdowns in 2019 (second only to Israel Adesanya), and earning the praise of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, who listed him among the most impressive Russian fighters of 2019.
