UFC 299 video: Sean O’Malley vs. Marlon Vera exchange words in animated faceoff

MIAMI – UFC 299 headliners Sean O'Malley and Marlon Vera came face-to-face one final time Friday prior to their clash Saturday at Kaseya Center and the tension was palpable.

With a black cap covering his cotton candy-colored hair, O’Malley (17-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) exchanged words with Vera (21-8-1 MMA, 15-7 UFC) in an animated faceoff until UFC CEO Dana White decided it was enough.

The crowd was split. O’Malley’s star power was evident, but so was the passionate Latin American fanbase that flocked to support Vera.
