The feud between the two men holding pieces of the UFC bantamweight title continues to rage on.

On Tuesday, the new date of the highly-anticipated rematch between champion Aljamain Sterling and interim champion Petr Yan was confirmed to be set for UFC 273 in April, a change from a previously settled date at UFC 272 in March.

Sterling (20-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) recently stated the delay was due to Yan’s personal reasons and not being vaccinated for COVID-19. However, Yan (16-2 MMA, 8-1 UFC) claimed that is not true as he is vaccinated and ready to fight now, while citing a completely different reason for the change in date, which prompted a back-and-forth exchange on social media Tuesday evening.
