4. Sean O’Malley vs. Rob Font
O’Malley won a fight he was dominating despite severely injuring his leg in the third round. The young bantamweight has shown promise since being featured on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series.
Once that leg heals, however, O’Malley will likely be fast-tracked, and Rob Font is the perfect person for his next fight. Font isn’t necessarily the highest-ranked bantamweight, but he is a great test to see whether or not O’Malley is the real deal or not.
There are some serious killers at the top of the bantamweight division, and if O’Malley can’t get past Font, then fight fans will have a better idea of where he stands in the division, all hype from Dana White aside.
At 23 years old, the undefeated O’Malley (10-0) is still young and has time to grow as a fighter.
