Sean O'Malley doesn't think 'Chito' Vera rematch at UFC 299 will last long


Bantamweight champion Sean O’Malley faces rival Marlon “Chito” Vera in the UFC 299 main event on March 9th in Miami, Florida.  O’Malley’s title will be defended for the first time in this rematch.  

Vera (23-8-1), handed O’Malley’s (17-1, 0 NC) only loss of his career when they first fought in August 2020 at UFC 252.  Vera ended O’Malley’s fight with elbows and punches in the first round.  O’Malley seeks to avenge the loss and expects to stop Vera at Kaseya Center.  He even predicted how the round would end.  

“I’m a better dude than this guy.”  O’Malley replied: “I’m gonna go out there and do the same thing I was going to do to him, and put his light out.” The MMA Hour.  “He’s good.  He’s tough.  He is very durable but that won’t help me.  You can’t simply be strong.  You can’t only be tough.  “I believe I’m faster, more precise, and more skilled. And I just feel confident standing in front of him.”  

O’Malley said, “Mentally and physically, I’m prepared for 25 minutes.”  “I am preparing to walk out of there with a limp, and leave it sore. Leave there with his hand hurting.  “I’m going to put this guy’s lights out in three minutes.”
