O'Malley hasn't ruled out Sterling being Yevloev's next opponent

Sean O'Malley, UFC lightweight champion, doesn't rule out that undefeated welterweight Movsar Yevloev could be the next opponent for Aljamain Sterling, the promotion's former featherweight champion.

"Aljo won by a boring decision, so who will be his opponent in the welterweight division now? How about Diego Lopez? Although I think they'll give him Movsar Yevloev," O'Malley said on his YouTube channel.

It's worth noting that Sterling made his debut in the welterweight division on April 14 at the UFC 300th anniversary event, beating Kelvin Kattar by judge's decision. Yevloev had time to react to that win by challenging Aljamain. According to Movsar, he and Sterling, being two grapplers, will show a great fight.
