UFC star Aljamain Sterling has revealed he is feeling “sick and gross” after turning from Funk Master to Chunk Master following his win against Petr Yan.
The 32-year-old bantamweight champ has taken to social media to show he has put on almost THREE STONE within ten days of his UFC 273 weigh-in.
Sterling weighed in at 134.5lbs and tipped the scales on fight night at 152lbs for the fight with Yan, which he won via a split decision to defend and unify the bantamweight title.
He then shared to his fans his weight gain where he was tipping the scales at 176lbs.
In a video he posted to his 410,000 Instagram followers, Sterling said: “That’s a sick man. Oh my god.”
Captioning the clip, he quipped: “I am a bacon right now! Enjoying the fruits of my labour, but this is getting ridiculous.”
Uploading the same footage on his Twitter account, he stated: “Look at this bantamweight! That’s a sick, sick, man! Exactly 1 week after my fight. Wow…
“I feel fat and gross. My cheeks are so big. I don’t recognise myself. Diet starts [tomorrow].”
And in a recent video posted on Instagram, the New York native has shown that he has cut an incredible 12 pounds as he now weighs 164lbs.
Speaking in the clip, he commented: “Alright, guys didn’t believe my weight, I was 176, but my weight is now firmly back under control.
“Dang baby, losing weight. No more fat Aljo.”
Captioning the post, he joked: “No more Chunk Master! Time to get back to Funk Master!”
His fans were baffled by his rapid weight loss, as one user said: “How did you lose so much in such a short time?”
Another messaged: “Hw tf did you lose that much so quick lol.”
A third added: “Bro took a 10 pound s*** lmao.”
Meanwhile one simply said: “You’re the man!”
