Aljamain Sterling (-200) and Sean O’Malley (+169) are set to face off in an exciting bantamweight UFC bout at UFC 292. Both fighters possess unique styles that could be the difference-maker on fight night, but only one will come away with the victory. While this matchup isn’t yet officially a number one contender fight, there is a great deal of anticipation surrounding the clash between two of the top names in the division.
Sterling is undoubtedly one of the best grapplers in MMA today. He’s had tremendous success since joining the UFC, winning six out of seven fights while earning three Performance of The Night bonuses for his submissions. His grappling prowess gives him a distinct edge against most opponents as he can control where and how long each exchange lasts by taking them to ground or immobilizing them against cage walls if necessary. What makes him truly dangerous is his ability to deliver strikes from almost any position; when combined with his crafty grappling skills it makes him an extremely well rounded fighter.
On paper, O’Malley looks like Sterling’s biggest challenge yet due to his athleticism and striking technique which allows him move around opponents quickly while delivering powerful shots from unpredictable angles – something many lesser experienced fighters struggle with when facing Sterling’s style. However, O’Malley hasn’t faced much stiff competition during his three year stint inside the octagon so far and has yet to be tested against top level opposition like Aljamain Sterling before heading into their upcoming fight.. This could make all the difference in this match up as experience gained from tougher matchups often translates into better composure under pressure which may tip scales heavily toward either side depending on who can keep their cool first during exchanges..
When analyzing both fighters records and techniques, it appears that Aljamain Sterling will likely emerge victorious at UFC 292 due to his superior experience coupled with outstanding grappling skillset which gives him several advantages over Sean O’Malley during exchanges on both feet and ground levels alike! If o Neill shows too much respect for sterling’s top control capabilities then he’ll also put himself at risk for instant loss via submission or other major damage inflicted via strikes from dominant positions such as mount or crucifixes – something we’ve seen happen quite frequently throughout MMA history! All things considered though it looks like Aljamain should have enough tricks up his sleeve plus enough stamina left after exhausting those tricks defensively before finally landing some kind killer blows that will eventually end up getting Sean out cold sometime mid-late rounds – making Sterlings chances very high indeed for winning by KO/TKO if not submission outright!
