Recently on The MMA Hour, Cory Sandhagen shared his thoughts on Sean O’Malley vs Merab Dvalishvili.

“It’s going to be a hell of a fight for the both of them, to be honest,” Sandhagen said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “I definitely know that Merab’s biggest issue in fighting is clearing that gap.

He isn’t the fastest guy in the world. He doesn’t have a build that clears the gap really well. He kind of gets people tired and then that gap becomes a lot easier to close. But O’Malley is one of the best at hitting people in that void and in that space in between me and you".

Cory Sandhagen wants Sean O’Malley to win

“We’re rooting for Sean O’Malley. We want O’Malley to win, As long as he’s not going to go off and do some stupid boxing fight with that guy, or as long as he’s not going to try to go up to 145.

Don’t do that, Sean. Just stay in the division, try to clear us all out if you can. But don’t start doing all that stuff, man. To me, again, I’ll be real candid, I think that there’s a tactic with some people that they take where they go high-risk, high-reward fights.

No one wants to take high-risk, low-reward fights".
