Aljamain Sterling is assuring his fans that he’s okay, after it was revealed yesterday that he’ll no longer fight Raphael Assuncao.
The bantamweight contenders were supposed to fight at UFC Fight Night 102, December 9th in Albany, New York. But, yesterday it was reported he’s been forced to withdraw from the card due to injury. Recently the 12-1 fighter posted these comments on Facebook:
Ok, thanks for the genuine concerns, but I want to assure you all that I’m alright! Trying to do everything I can, to get on the closest card I can fight on. Things happen and my health was being looked after first. Thank you to the NYSAC and to the UFC for making sure I was safe and healthy first. Very disappoint to not fight in NY, but I expect things to be sorted out sooner than later. I’m in tremendous shape and mentally in a great place. I should have an update after the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the family you have, as everyone isn’t fortunate to have some of their loved ones around.
Sterling is looking to get back on track after he lost via split decision to Bryan Caraway in May.
