Petr Yan Wiki Update Wiki

Petr Evgenyevich Yan was born in the town of Dudinka on the 11th of February 1993. At age 6 Yan would start training Taekwon-do and during his youth Yan would get into various altercations in the streets and at his school in his area leading to his parents moving multiple times in order to prevent these conflicts. Yan would start training in boxing after being inspired by his older brother who was initially hesitant to let Yan join him in training boxing, Yan would often sneak and follow his brother in order to learn boxing. Yan would continue to train boxing for 8 years eventually earning the rank of Master of Sport in boxing in his weight class (64kg). Besides Yan's athletic achievements Yan would also graduate from the Siberian Federal University located in Omsk with a degree in Physical Culture and Sport. 

Yan would make his professional MMA debut in December 2014, defeating Murad Bakiev by KO in the third round of the contest. After this fight Yan signed with a Russian promotion called Absolute Championship Berkut, in his debut for ACB Yan would beat Renato Velame by unanimous decision. Yan would go on and build an impressive 5-0 record with 2 KO/TKO finishes, 1 submission and 2 decision victories against opponent such as Kharon Orzumiev and Murad Kalamov. Yan's impressive performances would earn him a title shot at the vacant ACB Bantamweight Championship in 2016, in this fight Yan would suffer his first career loss by split decision against Magomed Magomedov. It would not take long for Yan to earn his second title shot as on the 15th of April 2017 Yan would get a rematch with Magomedov after beating Ed Arthur by unanimous decision in 2016. Yan would win his rematch with Magomedov by decision before defending it once against Matheus Mattos, a fight that Yan would win by TKO in the first round. 

Yan's impressive performances in Russia did not go unnoticed, on the 23th of June 2018 Yan (now 8-1) would make his UFC debut against Teruto Ishihara, a bout that would not last long as Yan finished Ishihara by KO in the first round. Following his UFC debut Yan would go on one of the most remarkable UFC Bantamweight win streaks by defeating 6 opponents (including Ishihara) between June 2018 and December 2019 before earning his first UFC title shot. During this win streak leading up to his first UFC title shot Yan would defeat big names such as Urijah Faber, John Dodson and Jimmie Rivera. In July 2020 Yan would get his first chance at UFC gold against UFC legend Jose Aldo at UFC 251, Yan would secure the UFC Bantamweight Championship by defeating Aldo by TKO in the 5th round.  

Yan, now 15-1 (7-0 in the UFC) and an undefeated UFC champion would face Aljamain Sterling next in a controversial title fight that (at the time of writing this wiki) is still is a part of the daily conversation months after the bout. Yan is widely regarded to have had the upper hand during his first UFC title defense against Aljamain Sterling but got disqualified due to an illegal knee thrown in the fourth round of the fight. Sterling has been heavily critiqued for the way he acted after being hit with the knee and the way he has behaved himself after "winning" the UFC Bantamweight title on various media platforms. Petr Yan will have the chance to redeem himself against Sterling in a highly coveted rematch at UFC 267 later this year that will have the world watching.
