Vera and O’Malley met inside the octagon at UFC 252, where ‘Chito’ won via TKO in the first round. However, O’Malley suffered drop foot early in the fight, which made it difficult for him to move. That was the first and only loss of his professional career. ‘Suga’ doesn’t consider it a loss, saying the injury hindered him.

The number 12 ranked bantamweight recently went around Walmart, giving hundred dollars to people. In return, he received a lot of love and they were excited to see him. People got pictures clicked with the UFC star, thanked him, and wished him well. He posted the video on his YouTube channel.

But the UFC bantamweight doesn’t acknowledge the defeat and, according to him, it was just a freak accident. In a recent interview, he said, “I don’t feel like I lost that fight because my skills were worse than his. I think a freak accident happened. How many thousands of leg kicks, hundred and thousands of leg kicks have landed in the UFC, and how many times has that happened? That’s probably happened three or four times.”
