“You wonder if it’s CTE”


Sean O’Malley is no longer interested in fighting Cody Garbrandt.

Following his knockout loss to Kai Kara-France on his flyweight debut at UFC 269, Garbrandt (12-5 MMA, 7-5 UFC) announced a potential return to bantamweight and called out O’Malley .

But with Garbrandt 1-5 in his last six fights, O’Malley (15-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC), now ranked in the UFC’s top 15 bantamweight, doesn’t see much to gain in beating the former 135-pound champion. .

“Dude, Cody won’t have this fight,” O’Malley said on his YouTube channel. “When he said it, it showed in his voice. He was like ‘Oh, I want to.’ But that fight doesn’t happen.… It doesn’t make sense for him to say that. You wonder if it’s CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy). He’s been eliminated five times in the past two years. . This fight isn’t happening – at least not the next one … … that just doesn’t make sense, man. It literally doesn’t make any sense.

“I go over there and KO Cody, it’s like he’s 1-8. I lose to Cody, I lose to someone who is considered a little bit bad now.

O’Malley, who scored a first-round TKO from Garbrandt’s teammate Raulian Paiva on the same night, continued to rekindle the flame with Garbrandt when he faced him in the pre-fight press conference of UFC 269. But with Garbrandt’s recent struggles, O’Malley won’t be entertaining this fight – at least not yet.
