Sterling is riding a nine-fight win streak with recent wins over former champions Henry Cejudo, TJ Dillashaw, and Petr Yan.

O'Malley is looking to be the second product of Dana White's Contender Series to win a title and is coming into the fight on a four fight win streak. O'Malley defeated Yan in Oct. 2022 via a widely controversial decision but hasn't fought since.
