Sean O'Malley is one of the UFC fighters who has been attracting a lot of attention for years. He is currently the bantamweight champion. Many wonder if O'Malley can continue at the same pace as he has been doing so far. Up-and-coming UFC fighter, Raul Rosas Jr., gave his opinion on O'Malley and the fact that he is the current champion.

Raul believes that there are pros and cons. “I think it’s good for the division because it brings more attention to the division,” Rosas told MMA Junkie. “I know that he’s someone that, if we ever fight in the future, it’s a fight that would be huge in the division.

I don’t know if it will ever happen because I think he’s looking for – like I don’t know if he’s going to defend his title much because I saw he was trying to fight Gervonta Davis and stuff like that, so I don’t know if he’s going to want to do other things."

Rosas Jr. believes that there are many dangerous opponents for O'Malley at this time. “Also, the truth is that there are a lot of tough styles for him that are in title contention in my opinion: Merab being one of them.

So let’s see what happens. … Him being champion, in a way it’s bad for the division, for the guys that truly deserve to fight for the title. But at the same time, it’s also good for the division because he brings a lot of attention”.

Sean O'Malley will have an interesting rematch in March next year. His opponent will be Marlon Vera. Raul believes that it will be an interesting match, in which both have good chances. “I think that ‘Chito’ can beat him, but the truth is that the way I saw Sean O’Malley in his last fight, I think his is his best moment, so I think he’s more dangerous than when ‘Chito’ fought him the first time,” Rosas said.

“However, I also feel ‘Chito’ broke him a bit, and having that is good. ‘Chito’ knows he broke him once, so entering a second fight, that’s going to help him”.
