Petr Yan Lights up Cody Garbrandt Over Plan to Fight For Flyweight Title

Petr Yan

By FCF Staff

Recently Cody Garbrandt reported that he wants to drop down to flyweight to challenge new champ Deiveson Figueiredo, and new bantamweight champ Petr Yan has responded.

Following Figueiredo’s championship win earlier this month, when he choked out Joseph Benavidez, Garbrandt’s announced he hopes to fight the rising star. Since then, however, Yan responded with this.

Yan (15-1) secured the vacant bantamweight belt at UFC 251 earlier this month, by stopping Jose Aldo. Garbrandt (12-3) recently ended a three-fight losing skid, by knocking out Raphael Assuncao in June.
