Sean O’Malley Comments on the Potential Matchup With the Rising Star

Sean O’Malley is optimistic about the possibility of a super fight with Ilia Topuria.

Sean O’Malley is gearing up for his highly anticipated rematch against Marlon ‘Chito’ Vera, and he’s not planning on leaving the outcome to the judges. O’Malley, who accurately predicted a knockout victory in his last bout against Aljamain Sterling at UFC 292 in August 2023, is determined to continue his momentum.

Anticipation is building for UFC 299 in Miami, Florida, on March 9, where the 29-year-old superstar, Sean O’Malley, will take centre stage in a headline matchup against ‘Chito’ Vera. The rematch carries extra weight as their previous meeting at UFC 252 in August 2020 ended with Vera securing a first-round finish, marking an important moment in O’Malley’s career.

Now, with redemption on his mind, O’Malley aims to showcase his growth in the highly awaited showdown.

O’Malley vs Topuria

Sean O’Malley is setting the stage for a potential champion vs. champion showdown if both he and Topuria emerge victorious from their upcoming fights. The confident “Sugar” anticipates a clash that would see him face off against Topuria, adding an extra layer of excitement to the prospect of two champions going head-to-head in a high-stakes matchup.

“If he goes out there and beats ‘Volk’, and I go out there and beat ‘Chito,’ that fight’s happening next, That’s just what’s happening”

“Something I’ve never understood … I’m clearly, whether you guys f**king agree or not, UFC thinks so, I’m a potentially massive star already,”
“If Ilia thinks I’m an easy fight — who’s a bigger fight than me? Conor would be a bigger fight, yes. Conor’s not gonna fight Ilia. Conor literally, probably doesn’t (know who he is) maybe he does. Ilia’s f**king sick. I like watching him fight. He’s very dangerous, very skilled.”

“But if I’m an easy fight for these guys, I don’t know why- it was back in the day when I was calling out Dominick Cruz, calling out Cody Garbrandt, they were like, ‘He sucks, I’m not gonna fight him.’ Why not fight the guy who’s an easy fight with the big mouth and big name.” 
O’Malley said on the TimboSugar Show podcast.

Response to Haters

The fame that accompanies Sean O’Malley’s status in the MMA world has inevitably led to divided opinions among fans and critics. Some critics argue that O’Malley has yet to prove himself in certain aspects of the sport, pointing to supposed deficiencies in grappling and untested five-round cardio.

The ongoing discussion about these perceived weaknesses underscores the challenges and expectations that come with O’Malley’s stardom in the Octagon.

‘’Oh, but does he have enough cardio?’ It’s always something. I got it all. I can do it all. If it goes five fives, you get to see that. I don’t think it’s going to. I think I’m going to finish him, too fast, too sharp, too focused.’’ O’Malley said BroMalleyshow

As Sean O’Malley prepares for his rematch against ‘Chito’ Vera and hopes for a potential super fight with Ilia Topuria, the MMA world eagerly awaits the unfolding chapters in the “Sugar” show.
