The UFC pay-per-view is just around the corner, but the real excitement has already started. Aljamain Sterling and Henry Cejudo are already eyeing each other up, even before the official fight week festivities have begun. These two are going to bring some serious heat to the octagon, and I can’t wait to see how it all goes down!

The bantamweight fighters had an unexpected encounter at the hotel on Sunday before their highly-anticipated championship match in the main event of UFC 288. This epic event is scheduled to go down on Saturday at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Fans can catch the main card live on pay-per-view, while the prelims will be broadcasted on ESPN/ESPN+. It’s going to be a wild night of fights!

When Sterling and Cejudo bumped into each other at the host hotel, it was a pretty calm and respectful interaction. They didn’t engage in any unnecessary showboating or drama, and simply exchanged a few words before going their separate ways.

Aljamain Sterling has faced plenty of criticism during his two-year stint as the UFC bantamweight champion. It’s part and parcel of being in a high-profile job, but the 33-year-old New Yorker has had to put up with a lot of negativity, most of which isn’t his fault. Sterling’s ascent to the UFC title was due to Petr Yan’s disqualification for an illegal knee during their fight in 2021. Despite the initial backlash, Sterling has developed a thick skin, and has learned to embrace his role as the bad guy. As a result, he’s been able to tune out most of the negative comments directed towards him.
