A string of controversial decisions for Petr Yan

All was going great for Petr Yan at UFC. ‘No Mercy’ had won the vacant Bantamweight title after defeating Jose Aldo. Just in the next fight, he faced Aljamain Sterling at UFC 259. The fight ended with disqualification after some alleged ‘illegal knees’ by Yan. Some fans and pundits believe that the knee strikes did not deserve disqualification.
