At UFC 300, Aljamain Sterling made a winning start to life at featherweight. He defeated Calvin Kattar, and he did so convincingly. Now, the attention has turned to the future and what could be next for the former bantamweight king.

One name that ‘Funk Master’ has mentioned is Movsar Evloev. Sterling has made it crystal clear that he’d be interested in a meeting with him, and even noted that he’d be excited to see how their grappling exchanges play out in the Octagon.

As you can imagine, Evloev took note of this. In a recent post on X, Movsar officially responded and called for a collision with Aljamain.

“@funkmastermma brave for you to talk about me. I like it! Call UFC and fight me. I’m ready.”

This certainly feels like an interesting step forward for Sterling. After all, he’s made no secret about the fact that he wants to pursue the featherweight championship. On the flip side, Evloev appears to be ready and raring to go in the title conversation. The two men have similar styles in some respects, but perhaps the biggest difference would be in the striking.

For the most part, we have no idea how their striking would match up with one another. It could be a case of cancelling each other out, or perhaps, one of them has a trick up their sleeve. Either way, it’s an important fight at 145 pounds.
