Update 10:20 p.m. O’Malley has completed his fight walkout to an appreciate crowd, and we’re a few minutes from being underway at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
One of the more popular new fighters in the UFC looks to take another step in the bantamweight rankings as Sean O’Malley takes on Pedro Munhoz at UFC 276 on Saturday from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The No. 13-ranked O’Malley (15-1, 11 KO’s, 1 submission) is an electric finisher who has won three straight after falling to Marlon Vera almost two years ago in Abu Dhabi. The 27-year-old is now 7-1 in the UFC, with five straight wins by stoppage.
Munhoz (19-7, 8 submissions, 5 KO’s) checks in at No. 9 in the rankings, but the 35-year-old is playing the role of gatekeeper here as the underdog. He’s lost his last two bouts by decision to a pair of legends in Jose Aldo and Dominick Cruz.
Here are the latest odds from DraftKings Sportsbook from the bout, and we’ll update this article with a brief summary of what happened after we have a winner.
