With one more victory, Sean O’Malley will go down in history.
“Sugar” is anticipated to be Aljamain Sterling’s next opponent for the bantamweight championship, which Sterling successfully defended at UFC 288 with a split decision victory against Henry Cejudo, who was making a comeback. O’Malley entered the cage during Sterling’s post-fight interview and engaged in a verbal duel with Sterling to promote their next fight.
When asked what he found most impressive about Sterling, O’Malley responded on The MMA Hour, “If anything, I would say his gas tank. Keeping up with Henry for five rounds, that was more impressive than anything. I understand how dangerous of an opponent Aljo is. I know his strengths, I know his weaknesses, he could be considered the greatest bantamweight of all time right now with his resume, so I know what I’m getting into. I’m very excited for the challenge and I do believe I have the ability and the skills to go out there and shock the world because I do believe I’m going to be a massive underdog.”
“I think when you look at who he’s beat and how his style is, very grappling heavy, I haven’t really fought a really, really good grappler yet inside the octagon. Obviously, I train with absolute killers. I understand where the strengths and weaknesses are and I do believe I have the skills and I think the outside perspective will be Aljo’s going go out there and do what he did to Cory [Sandhagen]. We’ve got kind of similar body types, so I’ve just got to last longer than 12 seconds, than Cory, and it’s a win. Just jokes.”
