Sean O'Malley vs Marlon Vera will be featured as the co-main event and should be an exciting one with two hot prospects in O'Malley and Vera. Since his injury, O'Malley has drastically improved and is now putting his opponents away with ease with 1st round knockout after 1st round knockout. Marlon Vera is unlike anyone O'Malley has ever fought, Vera was on a 5 fight winstreak before losing via decision in a fight many will say he won. Vera brings high level jiu-jitsu to the table so it'll be interesting to see how O'Malley responds should he end up on the mat since we haven't seen O'Malley on the mat wrestling because he has just been knocking everyone out. As long as this fight stays on the feet its O'Malley should put on a beautiful display of striking and win either late KO or via decision, I would avoid 1st round KO bet for O'Malley here since Vera has a strong chin and has never been finished. Marlon Vera has a huge hole in his game for being a jiu jitsu fighter and that is the lack of takedowns, if it wasn't for that I would look at Vera for the upset.
