Marcus McGhee — teammate and one of Sean O’Malley’s sparring partners — scored an impressive technical knockout win this weekend (Fri., Jan. 6, 2023) at LFA 149 in Chandler, Arizona. McGhee was one of O’Malley’s main UFC 280 training partners for his fight against Petr Yan and has become close with the UFC superstar over the years.
The fight itself wasn’t competitive, and for the most part, McGhee used his opponent, Luciano Ramos, as his punching bag while working on his takedown defense.
“Maniac” McGhee is the latest Bantamweight standout from The MMA Lab, which is located in Glendale, Arizona. It’s been producing high-quality Bantamweight prospects for years, with a current roster that features Mario Bautista, Kyler Phillips, Casey Kenney and O’Malley, all of whom are making waves in UFC.
McGhee is 6-1 in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career and holds a 100 percent finish rate with six knockouts. He is currently riding a two-fight win streak. The 32-year-old hopes to be the latest addition from The MMA Lab to make it to UFC in 2023.
