UFC 292: Sterling vs O’Malley – Clash of Champions

Get ready for UFC 292: Sterling vs O’Malley, where Aljamain Sterling defends his bantamweight championship against Sean O’Malley. Also, Zhang Weili defends her strawweight title against Amanda Lemos. Don’t miss this clash of champions!

The UFC bantamweight championship is set to take center stage at UFC 292 in Boston on Saturday, Aug. 19. Aljamain Sterling, the most underappreciated world champion in the UFC, will face off against Sean O’Malley, one of the promotion’s most marketable crossover stars.

Sterling’s reign as the bantamweight champion has been filled with unique outcomes that have limited his popularity as a leading figure. Despite his recent dominance in grappling, including a decisive victory over TJ Dillashaw, Sterling’s skill hasn’t translated into the level of recognition he deserves.

On the other hand, O’Malley is known for his colorful personality and cocky striking style. He prioritizes business savvy over fighting the absolute best every time. However, his narrow but thrilling Fight of the Night against former champion Petr Yan proved that he is a legitimate challenger and worthy of a title shot.

But the bantamweight championship is not the only title up for grabs at UFC 292. The women’s strawweight title fight between China’s Zhang Weili and Brazil’s Amanda Lemos promises an international flair. Zhang, who regained the 115-pound title in November, has been on a tear since her close decision loss to Rose Namajunas. Lemos, on the other hand, bounced back from a submission loss to Jessica Andrade and earned her title shot with two impressive stoppage victories.
