O’Malley became the new UFC bantamweight king with an incredible counter right that dropped Aljamain Sterling in the second round of their main event at UFC 292 at TD Garden in Boston on Saturday night.
The UFC posted a clearer angle of O’Malley’s decisive shots early Sunday morning.
O’Malley also earned one of the two “Performance of the Night” bonuses for his efforts. He has now five of his past six fights and improved to 17-1 with one no-contest for his career.
In a rare instance of the UFC immediately posting the finish of a pay-per-view main event, the promotion uploaded the climactic second round and the aftermath to YouTube.
Just hours after the conclusion of the event, the clip has well over 1.5 million views. If this is a sign of O’Malley’s popularity, even bigger things could be ahead for the UFC’s new 135-pound champion.
