A month out from his highly anticipated rematch with Aljamain Sterling, Petr Yan continues to show no mercy.

The promotion released the official poster of UFC 273, which features the co-headlining title-unification bout between champion Sterling (20-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) and interim champ Yan (16-2 MMA, 8-1 UFC).

But of course, Yan decided to put his own touches on the poster.

Sterling, who captured the title at UFC 259 via disqualification due to an illegal knee, reminded Yan of the outcome of their first fight.

“Bro, you lost! ”

Since losing his belt to Sterling, Yan was given an opportunity to get a piece of his title back when he faced Cory Sandhagen for the interim title at UFC 267 this past October. Yan won the contest in a thrilling Fight of the Night battle and will look to unify the belts when he squares off with Sterling on April 9.
