With existing criticism about O’Malley’s path to the title, the controversial decision to Yan, and the avoidance of Dvalishvili as a title challenger, ‘Suga’ faced a lot of heat. As such, Sean O’Malley vented out his animosity towards his rivals Petr Yan, Marlon Vera, and Merab Dvalishvili all at once. Here is what he said:

Chito's a f*cking piñata. Petr Yan's one fight away from bare knuckle boxing, and Merab's nose is more crooked than Joe Biden

Sean O’Malley mocked Yan for his three-fight losing streak, insinuating he would leave for bare-knuckle boxing with more loss. Then, he turned his focus to the hottest 135lbs contender, Merab Dvalishvili. With a 10-fight win streak on Dvalishvili’s side, the champion couldn’t make fun of his losing streak and resorted to mocking his appearance. ‘The Machine’ will weigh in as the backup for the bantamweight championship.

With Marlon Vera and Petr Yan on the same stage, the situation was tense at the UFC 299 press conference. However, the crowd acknowledged the trash talk from O’Malley even though they booed him for the most part. Since the talking was all done, now it is time for action. As such, Sean O’Malley faces ‘Chito’ in the main event of UFC 299, while Petr Yan faces Song Yadong in the main card opener.
