He stated that fighters still received a fair amount even when the promotion wasn’t as well-liked. Chandler, on the other hand, is a fan of Dana White and the UFC. Aljamain Sterling, though, obviously disagrees with all of this.

The light heavyweight stated:

“Come on Michael Chandler, you constantly criticise Dana and act as though Dana should have built the UFC fighter compensation structure. You’re full of it, Michael Chandler, defending fighter pay when it’s evident that we should be getting paid more.”
Michael Chandler has come under fire for his position in the on-going discussion over UFC fighter compensation. Chandler has stated that he is happy with the promotion’s current pay structure despite the criticism.

Aljamain Sterling claims he’ll face Henry Cejudo in May

Aljamain “Funkmaster” Sterling states that Henry Cejudo will be his next opponent, but it won’t happen right away.

For a number of months, rumours have been swirling that Aljamain Sterling will face Cejudo to defend his bantamweight championship. The fight was initially scheduled to happen in early 2023, with the UFC aiming for April’s UFC 287 event. Sterling just stated that these plans have been moved until May in an interview with The Schmo. Sterling’s new treatment regimen for a bicep strain is the cause of the delay.

The champion bantamweight said:

“Triple Zero will follow. He follows at 110 percent. But April won’t be the month. We’re going to give myself a little bit more time after consulting with my medical team and the doctors. May is going to arrive. How everything eventually comes full circle is kind of crazy. I was aware of my ailments before the bout, before the rematch with [Petr] Yan, and before the T.J.”

The African-candor American’s on his injury in the run-up to the fight with Cejudo might work against him. He offers Cejudo an edge by disclosing the ailment because Cejudo now has a target to concentrate on. To keep the element of surprise in such circumstances, combatants typically steer clear of divulging the specifics of their wounds.

Sterling, however, is certain that his injury won’t have an impact on how the fight turns out. When it comes time for the fight, he is sure that he will be fully recovered, and the outcome will be determined by how well they perform in the octagon.
