Petr Yan Class T Shirt Saturday's stacked UFC 259 card features a superfight between champions in the main event with the greatest female fighter in the history of the spot putting her skills on display in the co-main event. The first of the three title fights on the card, however, may be the best of all with bantamweight champion Petr Yan defending his title against top contender Aljamain Sterling -- a throwback fight, stylistically, highlighting a battle between striker and grappler. 

Yan blasted his way to the championship with four knockouts in his seven UFC fights. He capped off his run to the title by stopping former featherweight champion Jose Aldo with punches in the fifth round of their UFC 251 war to capture the vacant bantamweight championship.

Sterling is on the far opposite end of the spectrum with eight submission victories and only two knockout finishes in his pro career. Sterling's entire gameplan nearly every fight revolves around control and grappling. At UFC 250, Sterling faced Cory Sandhagen with fan and media expectations of a grueling fight where Sterling would be in danger throughout. Instead, it took Sterling less than 90 seconds to take Sandhagen down and secure a rear-naked choke to secure his title shot.

The approach each man has taken to even speaking about the fight speaks to the clear differences in approach. While Yan has promised "a very violent finish," Sterling has spoken to his more methodical approach.
