By FCF Staff
Following the news that Aljamain Sterling will no longer compete at UFC Fight Night 102, the bantamweight contender has assured his fans he’s “alright”.
On Wednesday it was reported that Sterling will no longer fight Raphael Assuncao at the December 9th event, due to an injury. Since then, the 27 year-old fighter has posted the following comments on Facebook:
Ok, thanks for the genuine concerns, but I want to assure you all that I’m alright! Trying to do everything I can, to get on the closest card I can fight on. Things happen and my health was being looked after first. Thank you to the NYSAC and to the UFC for making sure I was safe and healthy first. Very disappoint to not fight in NY, but I expect things to be sorted out sooner than later. I’m in tremendous shape and mentally in a great place. I should have an update after the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the family you have, as everyone isn’t fortunate to have some of their loved ones around.
Sterling, who is currently ranked #8 in the UFC’s 135 division, is coming off a split decision to Bryan Caraway in May.
