Suga does it again! Monster Energy congratulates Sean O’Malley on his knockout victory over Kris Moutinho at UFC 264 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday night. In the Main Card fight in the bantamweight division, the 26-year-old from Helena, Montana stopped his opponent via TKO at 4:33 minutes of Round 3 and earned the UFC’s ‘Fight of the Night’ award worth $75,000.
UFC 264: Poirier vs McGregor 3 took place on Saturday night in front of 20,000 fans at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and a global audience of PPV viewers. The fight was attended by several celebrities including singer Sia, actor Miles Teller, and former President Donald Trump.
O’Malley (14-1) was initially scheduled to face Louis Smolka at UFC 264. But Smolka was forced to pull out of the event due to injury in late June. On short notice, UFC newcomer Moutinho (9-5) from New England came in as the replacement. After previously knocking out Thomas Almeida at UFC 260 in March, O’Malley stepped into the Octagon as the betting odds favorite.
