UFC bantamweight champion Petr Yan and Cody Garbrandt continue to chirp at each other.
Garbrandt, a former UFC 135-pound champ, snapped a three-fight losing skid with a spectacular knockout over Raphael Assuncao last month at UFC 250. Yan (15-1 MMA, 7-0 UFC) claimed the vacant bantamweight title with a fifth-round stoppage win over Jose Aldo earlier this month at UFC 251.
Garbrandt wasn’t impressed, poking at the champion’s performance by calling him too slow. “No Love” then responded to a fan suggestion that he should fight Yan next, saying that the two have “unfinished business” in reference to a backstage altercation at UFC 245.
But it appears that Garbrandt (12-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) has diverted his attention back to the idea of dropping down to flyweight, showing interest in a potential fight with newly crowned UFC 125-pound champ Deiveson Figueiredo....
