O’Malley turned professional in 2015. Earning a contract with the UFC after appearing on Dana White’s Contender Series, O’Malley has won three fights in the octagon. He beat Terrion Ware in 2017, Andre Soukhamthath at UFC 222 and Jose Alberto Quinonez at UFC 248 this past March.
A series of drug tests halted his career and the matches he wanted. O’Malley was set to compete at UFC 229 in October 2018 before initially testing positive for ostarine. Serving a six-month suspension, the supplement appeared to still be in his system as USADA flagged him for another failed test. It was determined by USADA that the second violation was a result of a tainted dietary supplement. Following that, he stated he wanted to compete more and was looking at a summer bout.
Wineland (24-13-1) is coming off of a win against Grigory Popov at UFC 238 in June. It ended a two-fight losing streak for the 35-year-old, who joined the UFC in 2011.
UFC 250 is set to take place on June 6. The UFC is hoping to get the APEX Center in Nevada for the event. The main event is scheduled to be Amanda Nunes defending her UFC Featherweight Title against Felicia Spencer.
