Petr Yan vs. Sean O’Malley announced for massive UFC 280 card

It seems that UFC 280 might be the “it” card of the year. With two title fights already confirmed for the event, a three-rounder with title implications has just joined the card.

According to Sean O’Malley, who appeared on DC & RC on Wednesday, he’ll be fighting former champion Petr Yan, joining the reigning champion Aljamain Sterling who will look to defend the title he took from Yan when he fights TJ Dillashaw.

The fight will be the first non-title fight for Yan who lost his title due to a controversial DQ after illegally kneeing Sterling in the final moments of their fight. The belt went to Aljamain via default, despite Yan clearly on his way to a dominant decision win. Their rematch, another five-round affair saw Sterling defend the title via a controversial close decision.

O’Malley is coming off a controversial fight of his own. Just last month his fight with Pedro Munhoz was declared a no contest after an accidental eye poke forced the doctors to wave off the fight. Many thought the fight would be rebooked, but that turned out to not be the case.
