Two exciting bantamweights will meet at UFC 222 on March 3rd in Las Vegas.
Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series standout, “Sugar” Sean O’ Malley (1-0 in UFC, 9-0 in MMA), has been scheduled to take on the dangerous Andre Soukhamthath.
O’Malley electrified crowds with his striking style when he knocked out Alfred Khashakyan over the summer on the Fight Pass’ aforementioned series in which Dana White himself would watch young prospects do battle and then hand out contracts to who he deemed the most deserving fighters each week.
O’Malley made his official UFC debut earlier this month where he took on Terrion Ware in a bout that would see O’Malley take a decision over a game opponent.
Soukhamthath just picked up his first win with the promotion earlier this month knocking out the highly-touted Luke Sanders on short notice. Prior to the win over Sanders, Soukhamthath had lost two close fights in a row via split-decision.
