Sean O’Malley plans ‘fucking big contract’, ‘massacre’ in 2023

Sean O’Malley wants to fight three times a year like he did in 2020 and 2021, despite the limits of the pandemic.

But in 2022, he seems ready to admit that three fights may not happen. He may have to settle for two. But if so, he’s firmly aiming for 2023 and what that might bring him.

O’Malley (15-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) got into a fight a month ago and landed his third straight knockout at bantamweight. He knocked out Raulian Paiva at UFC 269 and won his third straight bonus of $ 50,000 after the fight. He has six bonuses in his eight UFC fights.

But he also broke his right thumb during the fight and was in a cast, which prevented him from training properly.

“I look at it a certain way: if I don’t (fight) by June or July, it just gives me time to get better and better,” O’Malley said on his show. regular on YouTube. “I haven’t been able to train since my fight. I have had a broken thumb since my fight – I haven’t been able to train. I haven’t been able to improve so far. I will be removing my plaster soon. It will give me a few months to improve myself. I’m not too worried about it.

“Ideally, I get three fights in a year. It’s kind of where I think. I don’t know if it’s (because I want) more money. I think it’s competition. I love the competition. But I just want to get back into the game and improve myself. So if I only have two – if I have one in July and November, December… I might only have two this year. (I) will fight for the contract, then 2023, boom: big fucking contract and go for a killing spree.

O’Malley started his career with a perfect 12-0. After a resounding victory in Dana White’s second event in Dana White’s Contender Series in 2017, he was in the UFC a few months later and suffered a first round knockout on his official debut.

After a decisive victory over Terrion Ware, he earned three more wins, all of which earned him $ 50,000 in post-fight bonuses.

But at UFC 252, O’Malley suffered a leg injury against Marlon Vera and was ultimately sidelined for his first professional loss. Once he came back there were only bonus knockouts. And perhaps just as impressive, O’Malley appears to be a pretty big draw for the UFC that after his promotional debut, every one of his fights since then has been on a pay-per-view, with five in a row on the card. main.

Thus, his mention of a “big fucking contract” could be justified.
