Petr Yan arguably got the biggest win of his career when he defeated Urijah Faber at UFC 245 on Saturday night — and one perosn who wasn’t happy about it was Cody Garbrandt.

Yan knocked down a resilient Faber three times on his way to a third-round knockout victory on the main card.

Afterwards, footage was posted showing Garbrandt — teammate and friend of Faber — confronting Yan backstage. The two exchanged words before they had to be separated.

You can watch the video below:

Garbrandt tweeted afterwards that he would love to face Yan in Russia when a fan brought up the idea. That is, if he gets past Raphael Assuncao who he faces next at UFC Columbus:

“After I’m done with Raphael. I’ll come to Moscow ???????? to fight Peter!!! I love the Russians ❤️????????????????” Garbrandt tweeted.

Yan would tweet as well stating that Garbrandt got emotional again:

However, Yan did not mention the possibility of fighting Garbrandt anytime soon. That’s because he has his eyes on a title shot against current champion Henry Cejudo who he called out following his win over Faber.

Regardless, a fight with Garbrandt would certainly be fireworks.

Do you want to see Yan and Garbrandt face each other soon? Who takes it?
