Aljamain Sterling, Petr Yan make weight for rematch –

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The UFC 273 bantamweight title unification fight between Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan is official after both men made weight Friday morning.

After Yan (16-2 MMA, 8-1 UFC) gave up the title to Sterling (20-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) by disqualification in the initial clash 13 months ago, the pair are set to run it back in Saturday’s co-main event at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.

Reigning champion Sterling stepped on the scale early in the two-hour window and was 134.5 pounds. Interim titleholder Yan came to the scale a few fighters later and weighed in at 134 pounds.
