SUNY Cortland graduate Aljamain Sterling (21-3 record) is slated to fight T.J. Dillashaw (17-4) as part of the main card for UFC 280 this Saturday at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The fight between Sterling and Dillashaw is one of two bantamweight division fights in the main card. The matchup between Petr Yan and Sean O’Malley is the other bantamweight fight.

In April, Sterling went five rounds with Yan for the bantamweight division title. Sterling won the fight by decision, which crowned him the current championship of the bantamweight division.
