Recently on La Seur, Ilia Topuria shared his thoughts on fighting Sean O’Malley.

“However I want”. Topuria said, as quoted by “To be honest, however I want – I can do with him whatever I want. I can just play with him. Like, how you want me to finish him? It’s like the same question I ask to all the guys that I’m facing: Just tell me how you want me to finish you.

I can do that. He’s a world champion, and I respect him. But he has nothing to do with me”.

“I just have a clear message for him, which is I want to fight him no matter the belts, no matter what, He’s been talking a lot, so he has to be the next one.

He has to be. Hopefully he signs the contract and he will be able to show up whatever the date is, but that’s the fight”.
