Petr Yan has lost Henry Cejudo and Sean O’Malley as managers for UFC 273.
Yan took to social media to ask other famous UFC fighters corner him since news broke that his Russian trainers were denied entry to the US because of his bantamweight title fight with Aljamain Sterling. Both Cejudo and O’Malley initially agreed to help Yan out, but Recent comments the word ‘No Mercy’ turned them off.
On the latest episode of Time MMAYan says:
“They just need to make sure they don’t give me their advice. Just give me ice and I’ll be fine.”
In a new episode of O’Malley’s TimboSugaShowO’Malley says:
“I won’t corner that f**king… I don’t care if he wins.”
O’Malley went on to say:
“I like Peter, you know? He’s a funny little poodle. I just want to get to know him.”
Henry Cejudo also saw the same saying and declared he was not a drinker of anyone’s water.
For now, it remains unclear who Yan will be in his corner situation as he tries to claim his undisputed bantamweight title from Aljamain Sterling. He can go out alone. He could go out with members of America’s Top Team he was training in Florida during fight week.
Only one thing is certain now: he won’t have Henry Cejudo or Sean O’Malley by his side.

Sean O’Malley fans are still waiting to know when he will fight next
Sean O’Malley’s last match was a TKO win in the first round via Raulian Paiva at UFC 269 back in December 2021. It’s been almost four months since and O’Malley still hasn’t had another fight announced.
Back in March, O’Malley revealed in a Twitch stream that he was hoping to compete at UFC 274 on May 7 because it took place in his backyard in Phoenix, Arizona.
That didn’t end all together, and it’s unclear if it was a decision from the UFC or due to a lingering hand injury O’Malley sustained in his fight with Paiva.
