The current UFC bantamweight champion, Petr Yan, spoke in detail about the background of the conflict with Andrei Orlovsky, explaining what exactly made him publicly insult the Belarusian heavyweight.
“I went live to describe the situation a little about Andrei Orlovsky and why I called him woolfell,” Yang said on Instagram. "A lot of people write about this situation, so I wanted to clarify."
“When I had a fight in America, in Chicago, they let us down to a certain room to take us to the arena. When we were brought into this room, I was wearing headphones, Leha and Sayat were with me. Orlovsky was sitting opposite. I was already on my way to the battle, getting ready for a fight, and in principle at such moments I try not to talk to anyone from outside, because I am already focused. It so happened that we sat down, and Orlovsky was sitting next to me, or on the contrary, I don't remember anymore, he greeted me, hi-hi, and he started asking some questions, I answered him once or twice, after which I put on headphones and was already in my wave "
“After that, he was already interviewed, asked what you can say about Petr Yan, to which he replied - he somehow wanted to talk to me in America, and I twisted my face, behaved arrogantly. You see, I did not want to communicate with him at the moment when I was being taken to a duel. Well, okay - this is one situation, but then I wound it up for myself for information. And then, before the fight against Jose Aldo, they ask him who you will root for in this fight, who has what chances, to which he answers - I want to fight for Archangel Michael, said something about me again that I was then arrogant. Okay, I think the old one is already driving mad, I decided not to pay attention. And then the third time he was asked about me, how do you like the fight of Peter Yan, and he starts again - I want to congratulate Igor Alekseevich, Kolya, Anya, Anton ... Well, pure nonsense. The man is 50 years old, and he is looking for some benefits for himself. I appreciated him in such a way, because in his statements it looked exactly like that "
“Now I watched his interview, where Lyutikov asked him about this situation, and he again says - he feeds from his hand, and so on. I can't say anything about this. I do not refuse my words. I always adhere to my point of view. Something like this"
