Dana White Doesn’t Know If Aljamain Sterling Gets The Next Bantamweight Title Shot

Petr Yan scored a fifth round TKO victory over former UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo at UFC 251 to win the vacant UFC Bantamweight Title.

Aljamain Sterling seems like the logical top contender to face Yan for the bantamweight title and the fighter recently revealed his feelings on the matter through Twitter:

While Sterling seems like the logical top contender to the UFC Bantamweight Title, one person who isn’t sure of who should be next is UFC President Dana White.

“I don’t know,” White said at the UFC Fight Night: Figueiredo vs. Benavidez II post-fight press conference (via Tristen Critchfield of Sherdog). “He’s in there. He’s up there. He’s one of them.”

There is only one fighter ranked ahead of Sterling in the bantamweight division and that is Marlon Moraes, who failed at an attempt to capture bantamweight gold at UFC 238.
