UFC champ believes everybody competing on a PPV card deserves PPV points

UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling has recently said that all the competitors on the main card of a pay-per-view card should get PPV points.

This means that they all should receive cuts from the number of sales a UFC card does.

Aljo was on The MMA Hour, where he discussed a bunch of topics, such as his injuries and his next opponents.

Sterling is currently on a break due to a bicep injury. When healed, he could be taking on former Bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo, or rising star Sean O’Malley.

He made it clear to the host, Ariel Helwani, that he’ll be going up against one one of them.

However, he said that if Cejudo didn’t want to wait for the “Funk Master” to recover, he can take it up with O’Malley for an interim bantamweight title.


“If he [Cejudo] wants to beat up Sean, go beat up Sean.”

Sterling said that an interim title fight benefits all the parties involved.

“I’m not mad at the interim. At the end of the day, an interim means that both guys get paid, right? Cause they’re going to now have a belt, and they’re entitled to pay-per-view points.”

The champ further said that he supports PPV points for all the people on the main card.

“I’m in favor for anyone on pay-per-view, on the main card, to get pay-per-view points. Even if it is 25 cents or 50 cents per buy.”

“I think, there’s a reason why you’re on the pay-per-view card. So, like, why not?”

Sterling also said that he wants to compete later in the year. Meanwhile, the company wants him to compete on March 4th, at UFC 285. He’ll be in the co-main event in this case, with the ‘Jones vs Gane’ being the headliner.

Regarding an interim title, he said that if he stays out of action beyond May, he’ll “probably end up getting the surgery,”. In that case, a bout for the interim belt could happen.
