And Sterling is already making his prediction for battle evening time.
“If I wanted to make a prediction, I’d say there’s positively little query in my ideas that that man’s discovering some kind of doctor or little microdosing or irrespective of, however that shit works,” Sterling suggested Submission Radio. “I guarantee you he’s discovering some kind of method to get an edge as quickly as as soon as extra, as he’s accomplished his full UFC career. So, I already made peace with it. So, on the end of the day, it’s what it’s. Like, I made the acknowledgement that I’m gonna step into there with this man, understanding that there’s a extreme chance of this happening. And it’s what it’s, man. I actually really feel like this isn’t gonna be the first man I fought that’s been on some supps, some extra supps. So, I really feel my onerous work and skillset is adequate to get the job accomplished sooner than, and I really feel it’ll most likely get the job accomplished as soon as extra.”
Dillashaw, 36, spent better than two years on the sidelines after failing a drug test for recombinant human erythropoietin (EPO) inside the wake of his Henry Cejudo loss at UFC Brooklyn once more in 2019.

“On the end of the day, his utilization of PEDs obtained’t make his battle IQ greater,” Sterling continued. “And I don’t assume he’s fought anyone with my kind of style. He could say irrespective of he wants by the use of it’s a easy battle, ‘hanging is embarrassing’, all these things he’s saying. Like I said, the trash focus on, any individual’s gotta eat their phrases and any individual’s gonna look very, very foolish. And I merely truly don’t assume it’s gonna be me. I view TJ as, I don’t wanna say legend, nonetheless he’s one among many better of all time inside the bantamweight division. I suggest, that’s data merely based on the numbers of wins that he’s had, him worthwhile the belt. Nonetheless I do know firsthand that he has not accomplished that the clear means like you could. I really feel my technique of viewing TJ is, he’s good, nonetheless he’s on no account accomplished one thing reliable. And that lets me know he’s acquired some kind of psychological weak level in there.”
