Tonight’s UFC 292 card is set to be a thrilling event, headlined by a highly anticipated matchup between Sean O’Malley and Aljamain Sterling. O’Malley, known as the ‘Suga Show’, will be competing for his first-ever major title shot. This fight marks the culmination of a long journey for O’Malley, who joined the UFC in 2017 and quickly became a breakout star on Dana White’s Contender Series.

After appearing four times in the Octagon between 2017 and 2020, O’Malley suffered a finish loss to Marlon Vera at UFC 252. However, he bounced back with three consecutive wins, including a split decision victory over former bantamweight champion Petr Yan, which put him in the position for a title shot.

Standing in O’Malley’s way is Aljamain Sterling, the reigning UFC Bantamweight Champion. Sterling has been on a roll, successfully defending his title three times, most recently against Henry Cejudo. Tonight, he aims to continue his momentum and secure another victory in Boston.

In the co-main event, Zhang Weili, the reigning strawweight champion, will defend her belt for the first time in this reign. Weili regained the throne last year with a dominant performance against Carla Esparza. Her opponent, Amanda Lemos, is a rising talent in the division, known for her quick finishes. This matchup promises to be an exciting clash between two skilled fighters.

Before the main card begins, the finale of The Ultimate Fighter season will take place on the prelims. Bantamweight finalists Cody Gibson and Brad Katona will face off, as well as lightweight talents Kurt Holobaugh and Austin Hubbard.
