Recap: ‘Sugar’ Sean O’Malley Walk Off KO’s Eddie Wineland in Round One

The first fight on the main card of UFC 250, featured former WEC Bantamweight Champion Eddie Wineland (24-13-1) taking on rising star ‘Sugar’ Sean O’Malley (11-0). Wineland made another walk to the octagon with his signature handlebar mustache. Despite being a veteran of the sport, Wineland is only 35 years old an impressive win could vault him into the rankings for one more run at a title, Wineland’s mustache fits his fighting style.

O’Malley came out in round one firing a sidekick, using his length to manage the distance. Wineland worked to get in range connecting with a nice overhand right. That would be as good as it got for the former WEC champ, who dropped his hands from a beautiful fake uppercut by, O’Malley which left him wide open for a missile-like straight right sending Wineland to the canvas.


Wineland fell straight back into dreamland he could be heard snoring while, O’Malley walked off the victor running his record to (12-0) with eight knockouts. Kudos to O’Malley for not following Wineland to the canvas inflicting more damage on the defenseless fighter.
