The UFC bantamweight number one, Sean O’Malley, shared his opinion on the upcoming fight between Peter Yan and Merab Dvalishvili, who will headline UFC Fight Night 221 in Las Vegas on March 11.
“A very interesting fight awaits us, Peter vs. Merab,” said the American in a video posted on his Youtube channel. “It’s five rounds and I’m leaning towards Petr to win. I don’t know if he can do a lot of damage to Merab if he hangs on him all the time. I think we were all surprised by Peter’s struggle in the first fight against Aljo, but in the rematch Aljo was able to transfer him and take his back.”
“The question is that Aljo first thinks of wrestling, then of jiu-jitsu, and Merab has only wrestling, wrestling, wrestling, wrestling in his head. Position control, hold, fight, fight, fight. Can he do it against Petr Yan? I’m not sure. In any case, all this is extremely interesting and we will soon find out the answers to these questions.
