Sean O'Malley

Sean O’Malley is one of the brightest prospects in the Bantamweight division of the UFC. As a result, there is always a comparison between O’Malley and Conor McGregor. This is because both the fighters had started their career in this weight class and put the world on notice with their impressive knockout wins during their initial stages of the career.

Furthermore, McGregor and Sean O’Malley have increasingly identical fighting styles and approach outside the octagon. Therefore people always claim that Suga Show is just trying to copy The Notorious and will not replicate the same amount of success as McGregor when he goes on to face tougher opponents in the future.

Ahead of his fight against Kris Moutinho at UFC, Sean O’Malley responded to those claims while speaking to The Schmo in the latest UFC 264 Embedded: Vlog Series.
