The jury is out on whether Sean O’Malley can be a crossover superstar. Avenging the only loss of his MMA career would certainly help his cause. O’Malley makes the first defense of his UFC bantamweight title against Marlon Vera at UFC 299 on Saturday in Miami.

O’Malley vs. Vera 2 is a sequel to their fight at UFC 252 in August 2020. “Chito” landed a leg kick that immobilized O’Malley, setting up a ground-and-pound finish later in Round 1. O’Malley maintains that he never lost the fight and is eager to right a wrong on Saturday. Some critics argue that “Chito” did not deserve the title shot but interest in him is at an all-time high. Drawing from the support of his home nation of Ecuador, Vera looks to go 2-0 against the champ.
