In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Sean O’Malley shared his thoughts on Conor McGregor’s outburst.

“I jokingly on my podcast said we talked, we’re good,” O’Malley said as quoted by “I haven’t talked to him since. I’ll forever be a massive Conor fan. The biggest fan, watched his career play out, watched every single interview possible.

I learned a ton from him. He’s a legend. That’s it. It is what it is”. “I tried [to hate him]. I was like * Conor, but it is what it isI think he realized what he said was stupid. I don’t know why he tried putting me and Ryan Garcia in the same category, saying Ryan Garcia missed weight and it made him mad about me.

It just didn’t make sense. I think he kind of realized what he said was stupid and then just backed himself into a corner.
