A bantamweight bout between Sean O’Malley and Thomas Almeida took place on the main card of tonight’s UFC 260: ‘Miocic vs. Ngannou 2’ event.

O’Malley (13-1 MMA) was returning to the Octagon for the first time since suffering a first round TKO loss to Marlon Vera at UFC 252. That setback had served as the first of O’Malley’s career, but he really never accepted it as such.

Meanwhile, Thomas Almeida (22-5 MMA) was looking to play spoiler at UFC 260, this while attempting to snap his three-fight losing skid. The Brazilian has last tasted victory in November of 2016, when he earned a TKO victory over Albert Morales.
