Sean O'Malley is the current Bantamweight champion, after defeating former champion Aljamain Sterling in a great fight at UFC 292. We have to agree that O'Malley showed exceptional preparation and desire for that belt, which ultimately resulted in him becoming the champion.
Sean O'Malley claims that he does not choose opponents and is not afraid of anyone, but he has his own desires
His next wish is Marlon Vera, a familiar face to him. It would be an interesting fight, but there are more and more mentions that the Irishman is avoiding the fight with Merab Dvalishvili.
Dvalishvili is currently the first challenger according to the ranking, but Sean O'Malley said that he only wants Vera because that would sell more tickets. We are not sure about that, but whoever opposes the champion will have a very difficult job.
In addition to his well-known speed, we were convinced that he also has a knockout punch.
“I remember the first time after we fought, everyone was like, ‘Aren’t you going to ask for a rematch?’ I said, ‘No, no, no – that rematch will happen when it’s supposed to happen,'” O’Malley told The Schmo.
“And right now, it’s supposed to happen. This is the next fight. That’s what I want, and I think that’s what’s going to happen, but we’ll see”. as quoted by MMAJunkie. “I’ll fight whoever they want me to fight.
I don’t know why everyone thinks I’m scared of Merab,” O’Malley said. “I think Aljo is better than Merab and I know I’m able to knock out Aljo. It is who it is. It’s been like that. People act like I call my shots on all my fights, but I’m going to take who they give me.
I think as a business, it makes sense, me vs. ‘Chito,’ to make the most money. He’s coming off a win over Pedro (Munhoz), who I beat in two rounds, but we’ll see”.
