Midnight Mania! Petr Yan requires Bantamweight bout in opposition to … Deiveson Figueiredo?

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Petr Yan needs again in to the 135-pound title combine. So lengthy as Aljamain Sterling holds the belt, nonetheless, it’s a little bit of a clumsy highway for the Russian kickboxer. The solely actual resolution is to get lively and begin selecting up wins, which is why Yan has been vocal a few fall return to motion.

In explicit, Yan has been jawing at Henry Cejudo on-line fairly a bit. Despite the trash discuss, Yan has lately moved on from that potential match up with the previous champion. Instead, he’s concentrating on a present UFC kingpin and workforce mate of Cejudo, Flyweight champ Deiveson Figueiredo.

Earlier right now, he took to Twitter to name out “Daico.”

Why is a Bantamweight contender calling out the Flyweight champ? It all stems from the upcoming interim title combat between Brandon Moreno and Kai Kara-France. Figueiredo, who’s recovering from a damaged hand, is understandably upset in regards to the creation of an interim strap shortly after he received the undisputed title. As a end result, he’s threatened to desert the belt and soar into the Bantamweight waters as a substitute.

There’s at the least one shark there ready for him.

What say you Maniacs? Would you prefer to see Yan vs. Figueiredo, or would you favor the Flyweight king stay at 125 lbs?
