Check out the ‘UFC 292 Countdown’ video to delve into the detailed analyses of three major battles lined up for the upcoming pay-per-view event on Saturday at TD Garden, Boston. The main event features a bantamweight championship clash between Aljamain Sterling and Sean O’Malley.
Sterling marked his third divisional title defense, tying the record, by overcoming Henry Cejudo at UFC 288 in May. O’Malley, on the other hand, will be stepping into the octagon for the first time in 2023. He secured this championship chance by vanquishing the former champion, Petr Yan, at UFC 280 last October.
The evening’s co-main event will see Zhang Weili, the freshly recrowned strawweight champion, defending her title against the rapidly rising contender Amanda Lemos. Weili earned her second championship title after a commanding victory over Carla Esparza in UFC 281 this past November. Lemos’s title shot comes on the heels of her third-round stoppage of Marina Rodriguez at the main event of UFC Vegas 64 in November.
Additionally, the comprehensive preview of the event heralds the eagerly anticipated return of ex-middleweight champion Chris Weidman. Weidman is set to reenter the fray for the first time since enduring a terrible leg injury at UFC 261 in April 2021, taking on Brad Tavares.
