As UFC 300 draws near, many MMA fans are equally focused on an equally stacked UFC 299 card. The PPV event goes down on March 9 from Kaseya Center in Miami and is headlined by a bantamweight championship fight with Sean O’Malley defending his title against Marlon Vera.

O’Malley will be making the first defense of the belt he won when he scored a TKO win over Aljamain Sterling at UFC 292. He is riding a five-fight winning streak since suffering his lone professional loss, an August 2020 TKO defeat at the hands of Vera.

Vera has run up a 5-2 record since defeating O’Malley. His most recent win was a decision over Pedro Munhoz on the undercard of O’Malley’s win over Sterling. The win over Munhoz was a rebound victory for Vera, who was coming off a split decision loss to Cory Sandhagen.
