UFC 292 Aljamain Sterling vs Sean O’Malley Prediction and Analysis
The UFC’s next numbered tournament will take place in Boston this weekend. Its undercard may be less than the previous one at UFC 291, but the main fight of the night definitely deserves attention. Aljamain Sterling’s fourth belt defense, which could be his last. The American wanted to move up to the next weight class. He said that he wanted to fight this fight and then go after Volkanovski.

If the Master of Funk is really going to go, then he needs to not only take down Sean O’Malley, but do it with confidence so that no one has any doubts about the legitimacy of his championship. We all remember how Sterling got the belt. Forbidden blow by Petr Yan with his subsequent disqualification.

Revenge also stayed with Aljamain. I’d like to see a trilogy, but it’s unlikely to happen. The second fight with Jan was followed by a fight with TJ Dillashaw. The athlete who served the disqualification claimed that he had an injury. Therefore, defeating him leaves doubts about Master Funk’s real strength.
In his last fight, Sterling faced former champion Henry Cejudo, who returned after a three-year layoff. Another tough split decision win. Despite three title defenses, Aljamain’s dominance is out of the question. This is partly the reason why he is not liked by management and fans.

The Yan fight was indeed a lucky ticket for Sean O’Malley. Sugar caught the former champion in a declining form and, thanks to the victory over him, fights for the title. But the fight with the Russian is the only high-profile victory for Sean in the UFC. He approached her outside of the top 10 rankings.
Volkanovski is ready to fight Sterling.
Sean’s trump cards are well known to everyone. He is a very talented striker who has outstanding anthropometry for the bantamweight division. 11 of Sugarka’s 16 MMA victories came by knockout, four more fights came to a decision and only one early in his career was won by submission.
Sean is good on the stand, but mediocre at wrestling. On the ground with Sterling, he has absolutely nothing to do. If the champion quickly takes the keys from Sugar, then this fight could be the surest win Aljamain is so sorely lacking. Surely O’Malley had time to work on tackle defense.
In his last fight, Sterling successfully transferred Olympic wrestler Henry Cejudo. Repeating this trick with a basic drummer won’t be a problem for him. Yes, Sean moves very well, in the first rounds it will be difficult to catch him, from a distance he can damage Sterling and create problems, but this will not last long.
Eddie Howe is capable of surprising:

We can assume that Aljamain will not take risks and force things, but closer to half the distance he will start to control the course of the match. On the ground, he is capable of doing anything with Sean and will try not to take the fight to the judges’ decision. Betting on an early win for Sterling in the second half of the fight suggests.
