Aljamain Sterling wants to become the No.1 contender for the Bantamweight Title, but the president isn’t convinced yet.
Ever since the speculations about who is going to face Petr Yan, the new UFC Bantamweight Champion, have come forward. Aljamain Sterling is the name that has appeared in the mainstream to become the No.1 contender for the Bantamweight title.
The 30-year-old has been vocal about the vacant spot, and has been using social media to a good effect in reverberating his objective, and also showcasing that it is only him in the title picture. In the process, he even called-out Petr Yan a few times.
Paper Yan is a paper champion. His resume is single ply, too thin to even wipe my ass with it 🧻 Hasn’t beaten a single guy in the top five. So you know I’m coming on that 🍑 no tissues.☝🏾🎒

The Funk Master has won 7 out of his last 8 fights, and with his recent activities might have convinced almost everyone, even his naysayers about his contention, however the main man whose say matters the most is still reluctant to name him as the top contender for the Bantamweight title.
Why is Dana White Reluctant to name Aljamain Sterling the N0.1 Contender?
The particular question has had many experts scratching their heads. While it is clear on certain level that Sterling may eventually become the No.1 contender, yet Dana White hasn’t zeroed down upon him, simply because (conjecture) he is either waiting for Henry Cejudo to come out of retirement (Note, Cejudo announced retirement at UFC 249, and vacated his title there, which he also won at the same event), or maybe there is a chance that Cody Garbrandt is in the race too.
Whatever is the case one thing is sure, that Dana White sees things differently. The UFC president might as well have something larger in store.
