Sean O’Malley knocks out Thomas Almeida in the third round at UFC 260 (video)

Bantamweight Sean O’Malley put on a spectacular performance when he faced and stopped Thomas Almeida at UFC 260 live on PPV on March 27 (March 28 AEDT) in Las Vegas.


In the first round O’Malley landed a solid head kick to the face followed by left hand, which dropped Almeida to the canvas. “Sugar” believed it was a “walk-off” KO, but his Brazilian opponent got back on his feet, yet, was immediately greeted with a spinning back kick.

The fight ultimately ended at 3 minutes and 52 seconds into the third round, when O’Malley tagged Almeida with left hand, and delivered one more powerful shot, when the latter was laying down on his back.
