Aljamain Sterling wasn’t when he said that cutting weight to stay in the UFC’s bantamweight division has been extremely difficult.
Last week, Sterling looked healthy while cutting down to 135 pounds.
A week after his loss, Sterling posted a video on his YouTube page showing how much weight he’s gained since his fight vs. O’Malley.
After stepping on the scale, Sterling weighed 175 pounds, 40 pounds more than he weighed last week for UFC 292.
After losing to O’Malley, Sterling said he felt that he deserved an immediate rematch but wanted to take some time off to recover.
In a recent tweet, Sterling alluded to wanting to fight again in 2024.
Rematch 2024. Game of inches. I’ll be back.
