What lies in future for Sean O’Malley?
Though he has just returned, Sean O’Malley is likely to take some time off from Octagon. However, there has been no official announcement from the UFC yet. So, we can expect to see him back inside the Octagon after getting healed. There is possibility that he could be even booked for a rematch against Marlon Vera.
Further, looking at the events of their last fight at UFC 252 yesternight, it seems more probable. ‘Sugar’ would definitely want a revenge but ‘Chito’ wouldn’t think it quite good to wait for a rematch. He might loom to fight some bigger opponent right now.
