Sean O’Malley made an impressive comeback after suffering his first professional loss against Marlon Vera at UFC 252. Many questioned his commitment to the sport, his mindset, and his ability to assimilate losses. But his recent match wiped out all the questions regarding his future. Despite an injured ankle, O’Malley opened the scoreboard with leg kicks and heavy punches, storming his way through to win the match.
In the post-match conference, O’Malley talked about his win and expressed his disappointment at having to throw the final punch for the match to end. He said, “I was cracking him with some shots where I was like, this dude is tough before that (last shot) I saw he was out. I didn’t need to throw that. I mean I did because the ref was not gonna stop it.”
‘Sugar’ Sean O’Malley coming off an impressive win against Thomas Almeida at UFC 260, has his self-confidence over the moon and is eager to fight new opponents. The win can be considered as a benchmark to rate his abilities. Sean cannot hide his excitement and captioned his recent Instagram post “Future PPV king. Love using my weak ankles to kick people in the face.”

Sean O’Malley VS Dominick Cruz, a good co-main event fight?
Two-time UFC bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz expressed his thoughts on a potential match-up with Sean O’Malley. In a recent interview with ESPN, Dominick commented on Sean’s playing style and how both of them fight in a similar way.
He said, “Am I interested in fighting in (2021) again? Yes. I could also see how that could be a matchup that people are talking about. He feints a lot, uses his range well. He is tall, he is long. I am tall, I am long. I use feints. We have a lot of similarities.”
The potential co-headliner opening on the Conor McGregor battle card is a worthwhile chance that can launch either warrior into the bantamweight title picture. Sean O’Malley is the acclaimed new contender that has not crushed top rivalry in his UFC vocation up until now. A battle against Cruz would permit him to add another achievement to his resume.
