UFC bantamweight champion Pyotr Yan spoke about his meeting with former UFC heavyweight champion Andrey Orlovsky in the ATT hall. In 2020, an absentee conflict began between them, which was widely discussed in the media.
“Yes, we crossed paths in the hall, shook hands. Andrei and I crossed paths back in Moscow, when the first UFC tournament was held, we somehow greeted, but I never really knew him and never was a fan of him either.
Then we crossed paths with him at the UFC, and he began to say that I did not want to communicate with him. I thought it was on the day of the fight, but we already talked to him, it turns out that it was at the weigh-in, we were waiting for the weigh-in, I was wearing headphones. We said hello, but what’s next … I was on my own wave, wearing headphones, focused, and he took it a little differently. Then I responded to some of his statements, he answered something, and it turned out to be a dissonance, « Yang said in an interview posted on Dmitry Smolyakov’s YouTube channel.
