” Say something now,” Vera stated after he was apparently counted out heading into Saturday night. “A lot of individuals have a comment, have an opinion, it does not matter. The dog I have within is larger than all these men.”
As client as ever on the feet, OMalley was systematic with his attacks as the battle got underway as he began trying Vera with a series of stiff kicks to the leg. In return, Vera looked to close the distance while trying to trap OMalley versus the cage.
Midway through the opening round, OMalley started preferring his ideal leg after it appeared that he either rolled his ankle or suffered some type of injury to his foot. Whatever occurred, OMalley was obstructed as he began stepping gingerly on his ideal leg and Vera squandered no time at all leaping on the opportunity to complete the fight.
After another exchange on the feet, OMalley slipped to the ground and Vera followed him to the mat where he unloaded a huge punch followed by a disastrous elbow. When the 2nd shot landed, referee Herb Dean made the choice to rescue OMalley from additional punishment as he stopped the fight.
As soon as the fight ended, OMalley remained in misery on the canvas as he clutched his leg prior to being wheeled out of the APEX center on a gurney. It was an unfortunate end to OMalleys undefeated streak but Vera did whatever essential to make the blockage win.
Following a questionable loss in his last fight, Vera recuperated in emphatic fashion with the finish in the UFC 252 co-headliner. As for OMalley, he will now look for medical treatment for his hurt leg after suffering the first defeat of his career.
Marlon Vera got arguably the most significant win of his profession at UFC 252 with a first round interruption over Sean OMalley after the extremely touted bantamweight suffered a leg injury early in the fight.
While it was a back-and-forth striking fight throughout, OMalley eventually started hopping visibly and Vera seized on his challengers injury after the battle hit the flooring. The former Ultimate Fighter: Latin America contender blasted OMalley with some serious ground and pound prior to making the stoppage with completion coming at 4:40 in the preliminary.
