In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Sean O’Malley tried revealing his fight date.

“It’s going to happen. It’s going to happen this year,” O’Malley said, as quoted by “I don’t have a date for your guys, unfortunately. UFC told me at the end of the month, they’ll have a date for me.

I’m guessing, I’m hoping for the Sphere still. I’ve been pushing for that for a while but if not the Sphere, December in Vegas. Either one, I do think it will be in Vegas. It’s one of those two dates. Of course, I’d rather fight September [rather] than December, But whatever UFC says, I’m ready to go”.
