“Aljamain’s grabbing ahold of him and beating him up, Sean keeping him away with good footwork, good positioning and pinpoint striking,” UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya said on his YouTube channel. “Also, Sean’s slick on the ground. Scramble for your life. Do not let him get settled because the more he settles, the stronger he gets. If it goes the distance, I think he can do it. O’Malley’s locked in. I think he can do five rounds. I’m going to go Sean, official pick. I’m going to go Sean with this one. Sometimes you just feel like it’s time, it’s destiny.”
