UFC bantamweight star Sean O’Malley has expressed his interest in fighting fellow bantamweight contender Pedro Munhoz at UFC 274. The event will take place at Footprint Center in Phoenix on May 7. Sean is one of the most hyped fighters in UFC history and has lots of potential in him. Sean O’Malley came into the UFC after his wins at Dana White’s Contender Series 2. Now he is the future of the UFC bantamweight division and has already proven himself a certified star. In his last fight, he faced Raulian Paiva on December 11, 2021, at UFC 269. He won the fight via first-round TKO.
Sean O’Malley in his recent stream revealed his next fighting plans.
“I’m thinking Pedro (Munhoz) but we will see. I’m going to make sure I can f*****g train full time and my f*****g s**t feels good,” O’Malley said on his Twitch stream on Monday.
Sean O’Malley is 15-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC. He has been calling out serval top-level fighters but hasn’t faced any real connection of the UFC bantamweight division. He is currently the no.12 ranked UFC bantamweight fighter.
“I look at it one way: If I don’t (fight) till June or July, it just gives me time to get better and improve,” O’Malley said on his regular YouTube channel show. “I haven’t been able to train since my fight. I’ve had a fractured thumb since my fight – I haven’t been able to train. I haven’t been able to improve until now. I get my cast off soon. That’ll give me a couple of months to improve. I’m not too worried about it.”
“Ideally, I get three fights in a year. That’s kind of where my head’s at. I don’t know if it’s (because I want) more money. I think it’s a competition. I love competing. But I just want to get back in the game and improve. So if I only get two – if I get one in July and November, December … I might only get two this year. (I’ll) fight out the contract, then 2023, boom: Fat f*cking contract and go on a killing spree.”
