  • Aljamain Sterling is under-fire for posting photos of him and former kikcboxer  Andrew Tate in a party
  • “Funk Master” defended Tate against random fans over the controversies surrounding the internet star

To this day, some MMA fans are still fuming over how Aljamain Sterling copped the UFC bantamweight title at UFC 259 through to Petr Yan’s disqualification due to illegal knee. He officially tried to put an end to all the drama by outpointing Yan at UFC 273. However, just when “Funk Master” thinks the critics are gone, he seemingly gained new ones after he posted a photo of him alongside controversial internet star Andrew Tate ahead of UFC 280.

Massive backlash

While in Abu Dhabi for his title defense bout against T.J. Dillashaw, Sterling was “chopping it up” with Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan. They appeared to be chilling and having some good time socializing in an event. But based on the comments from the post, MMA fans weren’t happy about it, per MMA Mania

“Top G’s never die!” Sterling wrote on Twitter. “Good chopping it up with you fellas.”

Making it worse

Clearly, some fans already did not appreciate Sterling hanging around the Tate brothers. But the reigning bantamweight champ made things worse when he expressed support on Andrew’s disputable take on women being “responsible” for making “safe decisions” to avoid getting raped or sexually abused.

See Sterling’s exchanges with fans below:

One of the sensitive issues Andrew is linked with is the videos showing the influencer beating women. As expected, Sterling touched the subject as well.

In a video he uploaded on his YouTube channel, Sterling let everybody see what went down in the party with Andrew and Tristan Tate.

“All right so we just pulled up to the billionaire yacht. About to hang out with the boys. With the crew. Should be a great time. Mr. Tate is gonna be here. Top G! you already know,” Sterling said in the video that shows Andrew discussing certain things about combat sports.

UFC 280 is set to take place on Oct. 22 at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. Sterling will face Dillashaw for the UFC bantamweight title in the co-main event.
