UFC 292 live stream: Preview

This weekend's UFC 292 promises to be a barnstormer. The headline fight is between bantamweight champ Aljamain Sterling and challenger Sean O'Malley – and there's no love lost between them.

"I want to smash this guy's face," Sterling said at an open Q&A in New York recently. "I want to smash the ugly mole rat, the naked mole rat that he is. When I take this man down, that naked mole rat is getting smashed. Smashed.

"I want him to pay for everything that he said, all the trash talk, everything, all his [UFC president] Dana White privilege. I didn't have none of that, and I can't wait to take it out on him."

Why the beef? Sterling claims that O'Malley has had preferential treatment during his time in the UFC, while he had to work his way up the rankings the hard way. 'Funk Master', as he's known, rarely featured on UFC main cards while an up-and-comer, whereas O'Malley has been consistently promoted since earning a contract on Dana White’s Contender Series in 2017.

O'Malley is the underdog in this fight, while it will be Sterling's fourth straight title defence. Expect fireworks.

UFC 292 will see another title bout – for the women's strawweight belt, which sees defending champ Zhang Weili take on challenger Amanda Lemos.

UFC 292 takes place at the TD Garden in Boston, its first event in the city since 2019.
