A bantamweight bout between Sean O’Malley and Louis Smolka had been added to July’s UFC 264 lineup. MMA Junkie verified with a person close to the situation that verbal agreements between O’Malley (13-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) and Smolka (17-7 MMA, 8-7 UFC) are in place following an initial report from Fight Game Media . The person requested anonymity because UFC has yet to make an official announcement. UFC 264 takes place July 10 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims that are expected to air on ESPN and stream on ESPN+. O’Malley, 26, successfully rebounded from his first career loss against Marlon Vera with a thrilling third-round knockout of Thomas Almeida at UFC 260 in March.
