Merab Dvalishvili (17-4 MMA) is an apparent favourite, who has gained his final 10 bouts within the cage. ‘The Machine’ has defeated the likes of Jose Aldo (32-8 MMA), Henry Cejudo (16-4 MMA) and Petr Yan (17-5 MMA) to call just a few.

Urijah Faber, talking with ‘LowKick MMA‘ shared his perception into how Sean O’Malley would deal with the offensive wrestling stress of Merab Dvalishvili:

Persevering with ‘The California Child’ Urijah Faber stated:

“Truthfully, that’s a nasty matchup for O’Malley. Merab is so sturdy. That dude is sturdy. He’s gone in opposition to some killers, and simply sort of walked by their greatest offence. The one time he’s actually been damage is when he knocked himself out, slamming himself, ya know.”

Concluding, the UFC Corridor of Famer believes it may go both method:

“However, O’Malley has acquired that It issue. He’s acquired a finesse about him, he’s acquired like a matador kind of favor. Merab is certainly a bull, and If O’Malley can have his good combat, he’ll simply be tagging him with clear pictures and staying on the surface. O’Malley’s grappling is basically good. I’ve educated with a few of his coaching companions, and they’re actually high-level coaching companions… It may go both method.”
