Ahead of his much anticipated UFC 273 bantamweight title rematch against Aljamain Sterling, we take a look at Petr Yan’s wife, his family and more
You would think that for a fighter whose nickname is ‘no mercy’ his demeanor outside the octagon will be that of an authoritarian and uptight personality. However former bantamweight champion Petr Yan is a true-blue family man as much as he is a savage inside the cage.
In today’s MMA landscape, Yan has emerged as one of the most complete fighters the world has ever seen. A Master of Sports in boxing, Yan transitioned into MMA almost effortlessly. Although his fighting style is based on the rudimentary fundamentals of boxing, he has induced crisp kickboxing and domineering grappling abilities into his arsenal.
Yan’s boxing skills inside the octagon are second to none. His attacks are based on a high guard Mexican stance, but he also parries shots and loads counters almost effortlessly. He never wastes any movement in the cage, and is always thinking two steps ahead of his opponents. In addition to his peerless skills, he also has ice in his veins when it comes to fighting, thanks to his championing mindset and infrangible will.
A lot of this credit goes to his wife Julia Yan, who has been a rock-solid and unshakable support for Petr. The pair have been together for years and started out as childhood sweethearts in high school. Julia has seen his growth not only as a fighter, but also as a person, and the pair enjoy their position as one of the power couple in the game.
