In a recent YouTube video, Sean O’Malley shared his thoughts on Ilia Topuria’s future as the UFC featherweight champion.

“Ilia’s gonna be the next Cody Garbrandt,” O’Malley said, as quoted by “He won his nice little fight he had, his little Dominick Cruz performance — he’s about to get pieced up by Max Holloway and then go downhill from there.

Not really. I feel like Ilia is one of the most skilled guys actually in the UFC, but * Ilia”.
