O’Malley has a kickboxing background and he is going to look to put another impressive knockout on the highlight reel. Look for O’Malley to throw punches early and try to finish it early.
Wineland is a decent fighter, but there is no doubt that O’Malley is better than him, and he is going to show it early on in this fight. Look for Wineland to take no time to finish this fight. Take him to win this by TKO, but if you are looking for even more value, take him to win this fight in the first round.
