The Bantamweight division seems to be getting spicier as former champion Cody Garbrandt disrespects Sean O’Malley on Twitter after his spectacular performance at UFC 264 against Kris Moutinho.
Sean O’Malley took on Kris Moutinho and dropped a striking clinic in the main card. The fighter’s striking absolutely stunned everyone in the world but Cody Garbrandt apparently. The former champion is not impressed and lets his thoughts out on Twitter. O’Malley might be looking to get his shot at a matchup against Rob Font who seems to be making his name more prominent every time he fights. He beat Cody UFC Fight Night: Font vs. Garbrandt on 23rd May 2021. Sean has his eyes on Rob after performing last weekend. O’Malley has also previously taken shots at Garbrandt in the past.
After Sean’s performance, Cody went on Twitter to rile things up. “There are levels to this kid,” Cody wrote suggesting he and Sean weren’t in the same class. Sean today found that tweet on his radar and responded saying, “Did Rob teach you that?”

After Sean replied to Cody’s remarks on his performance. Garbrandt responded pointing out the one-loss O’Malley has in his career which the Suga Show does not claim to be a defeat. “If you say you are undefeated why don’t you rematch the guy that made you get carried out on a stretcher again?? If I go out I go out on my shield. I don’t have a bitch bone in my body, unlike you. We are not the same, you will soon find out!” he wrote.
In his last five fights, Cody has lost four of them. The fighter has a record of 12-4-0 in his professional career. Meanwhile, Sean has only one loss in his record and is on a two-fight winning streak currently. Do you think this Twitter beef could stir up something inside the octagon?
