UFC Fight Night 88 is this Sunday, and though the main event pits two hard-hitting bantamweights against each other in Thomas Almeida and Cody Garbrandt, the “main event” of the Fight Pass prelims has 135-pound stud Aljamain Sterling taking on top-ranked Bryan Caraway.
If you’ll recall, it wasn’t too long ago that Sterling was sticking his toe in the waters of free agency. But the undefeated fighter worked out a deal with the UFC, and now he’s getting the fights he wants (he’s been antagonizing Caraway on social media forever) and the push he wants (Sterling has been doing heavy media all week). It’s hard not to imagine a scenario where “Aljo” challenges for the belt soon if he smokes Caraway.
Below is Sterling taking on Hugo Viana. Watch it, then make a guess as to how he’ll do on Sunday.
