UFC 292 LIVE: Brad Katona vs Cody Gibson

Round 1

Nice variety of punch from Gibson, who slides an uppercut through Katona’s guard then wings a hook around it.

Better activity and accuracy from Katona as the round draws to a close.

UFC 292 LIVE: Brad Katona vs Cody Gibson

Round 1

Clean, straight punch from Gibson early on, while Katona kicks low. The bantamweights then clinch, with Katona firing off a good uppercut to the body.

They separate, and again Katona kicks low. Now the fighters trade body kicks. Clean one-two from Gibson!

That certainly got Katona’s attention. Another clean right. And a hook! Great head movement from Gibson, too, to avoid Katona’s counters.

UFC 292 LIVE: O’Malley vs Sterling

Rising star Sean O’Malley will challenge Aljamain Sterling for the UFC bantamweight title in the main event of UFC 292 tonight.

O’Malley’s crisp and flashy striking has seen him win over a lot of fans, though his personality has proven divisive. In any case, the American has managed to set up a title shot without going through the wringer that many fighters do, in large part due to his profile.

“Sugar Sean” did, however, take on ex-champion Petr Yan last year, edging past the Russian with a controversial decision win.

Sterling also divides fans but is crafting an impressive resume, which features successful title defences against Yan, TJ Dillashaw and Henry Cejudo – all former champions.

The Jamaican-American’s grappling skills are expected to be the difference tonight, though he must beware O’Malley’s ability to produce a one-punch knockout.
