Sean O’Malley vs. Marlon Vera Summary

In this clash for the Bantamweight championship belt, viewers will be treated to a real heavyweight bout between a striker and a grappler. Each of the fighters comes into this contest as a strong, effective counter to the other, with a real possibility of the other being the man who succeeds. In contrast to O’Malley’s punching power and ability to fight standing up, Vera has a better ground game and wrestling skills. Hence, he might face a challenge if the fight goes to the ground and O’Malley maneuvers himself correctly to take advantage of his longer reach. However, Vera saw that this was to his benefit as he could turn the tide around with a ground and pound game, which is where the fight should be taken to the ground if he succeeded. This would be where his superior takedown and submission game could be used.

Considering what both fighters are made of in addition to the skills they possess, our free UFC betting today is in favour of Sean O’Malley ever so slightly. With his outstanding accuracy and his skilled ability to hyper-control distance and the rhythm, he could win the battle for Vera. Nonetheless, Vera should not be neglected due to his effectiveness on the ground and the possibility of securing them as he closes the distance to his opponent. However, the contusion will be a battle of tactical styles which already has been clearly defined by both fighters. The contest is likely going to be very intense and close that the rest of UFC 299 lineup will probably not surpass it in quality.
