Bantamweight prospect Sean O’Malley will make his first Octagon foray against Terrion Ware at “The Ultimate Fighter 26” finale.
The promotion recently announced the pairing. “The TUF 26” finale takes place at Park Theatre in Las Vegas on Dec. 1. The inaugural UFC women’s flyweight champion will be crowned at the event.
O’Malley, 22, earned a UFC contract with a first-round knockout of Alfred Khashakyan at Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series 2. The MMA Lab representative is 8-0 as a professional and has won his last four fights by knockout.
Ware, meanwhile, saw a four-bout winning streak come to an end in his promotional debut at UFC 213, when he dropped a unanimous decision to Cody Stamann. The 31-year-old Californian owns a 17-6 career mark and has finished nine of his wins inside the distance.
