Petr Yan Lights up Cody Garbrandt Over Plan to Fight For Flyweight Title
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.
That moment when No Chin was walking to take a piss but ended peeing himself. You only bark but don’t bite and now you running away to flyweight division. Shut up while I will fight contenders who have balls to challenge me. https://t.co/aV0YkKOJJw pic.twitter.com/yvp1ompIxq
