Sterling was afraid of Kattar before the fight

Aljamain Sterling, former UFC lightweight champion, admitted he was afraid of Kelvin Kattar before their fight.

"Zabit knocked me out in training in 2017 when I was even smaller than I am now and had no idea who he was. The fight with Kelvin scared me because I saw how good Kattar was in the fight with Zabit. So before the fight itself, I had a lot of insecurity. It wasn't clear to me what was going to happen. So for the performance in this fight I can put myself "excellent", - wrote in his social networks Sterling.

Recall, Sterling beat Kattar by decision at the anniversary UFC 300.
