Sean O’Malley is another rising star and put his name on the map after his performance on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. Earning a spot on the show with a thrilling fighting style and unbeaten record, he starched Alfred Khashakyan with one blistering right hand. He went on to win his first UFC fight with a decision with over Terrion Ware and although this wasn’t a convincing win, he still carries a lot of expectation.

Andre Soukhamthath also arrived to the UFC with a lot of expectation as the CES MMA bantamweight champion but struggled, losing his first two UFC fights. They were both close decisions which he put to bed with an exceptional knockout over Luke Sanders in his last fight.


Both youngsters don’t quite have the profile as other fighters on the card but will hope to make up for that by putting on a show. They are both very aggressive strikers and will look for the finish.

O’Malley decides to keep his hands down to lure his opponents into range and counter but this will be a dangerous tactic against Soukhamthath who will oblige with venom. Their striking will surely be the key to victory with little grappling to offer.

Winner: O’Malley via KO/TKO
