Yan vs O’Malley Prediction
UFC 280 Yan-O'Malley prediction is from Tapology Fight Predictions.
Winner: Petr Yan (68%)
Method of Victory: KO/TKO (56%)
After winning 10 fights in a row, Petr Yan has picked up two losses in his last three outings. However, Yan still showed promise in both losses as one came by disqualification and the other by split decision — both against Aljamain Sterling. Needless to say, he's more than capable of bouncing back.
On the other hand, Sean O'Malley is as tough as they come. He's 5-1 in his last six fights with a no-contest mixed in there, scoring each of those wins by knockout. Unfortunately for O'Malley, Yan has never been knocked out in his eight-year MMA career.
As solid as O'Malley is, he still has a lot of learning to do. He might have the size advantage, but a lack of reliable takedown defense could spell out trouble here. I'm expecting this fight to be a close one that sees Yan win by decision (-105).
