The UFC Bantamweight fighter, Sean O Malley is going to make his comeback inside the octagon to face Raulian Paiva at the opening fight of the UFC 269 main card. Apart from O Malley, there are many other fighters who will be appearing on this card, namely, Cody Garbrandt, Dominick Cruz, and others.

Sean O Malley has been calling out Garbrandt and Cruz for a long time and ‘Suga Sean’ and ‘No Love’ got engaged with others in verbal war over Twitter as well. But now O Malley believes there is no reason to continue the beef with Cody Garbrandt as he is moving down to Flyweight.

Talking about the same in his latest interview with The Schmo, Sean O Malley says, “He’s a flyweight now, there’s no beef. You can’t pick beef with someone below your weight class. That’s just not what you do, so there should be nothing there. He’s a flyweight now, I’m a bantamweight, so I think it should be nothing.”

O Malley also got engaged in the war of words with former two times Bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz in the past and now Cruz is going to face Pedro Munhoz in the prelims of UFC 269. While Sean O Malley seems to end his beef with Garbrandt, he wasn’t that kind for Cruz.

‘Suga Sean’ added, “He messed up, I called out him and Pedro Munhoz and now they’re on the prelims. I guess it doesn’t really matter. They’re gonna get paid the same whether they’re on the main card or the prelims, I’m gonna get paid the same whether I’m opening up the main card or the prelims, so as far as making money, it doesn’t really matter but for your ego, that’s got to hurt.”

“Being talked about as one of the best bantamweights ever and you’re on the prelims. I don’t even know if he’s headlining the prelims. Prelim Pedro vs. Dominick, it just makes sense down there. I haven’t talked to anybody that’s super excited for that fight. They’re both top-10 I’m pretty sure and me and Paiva aren’t even ranked and we’re opening up the main card, so I think it just goes to show I’m the unranked champ.” {H/T MMA Fighting}

Sean O Malley already has his eyes on the next opponent, Adrian Yanez

After securing a win against Raulian Paiva, ‘Suga Sean’ is going to enter the top 15 Bantamweight rankings and he will look forward to fighting a big name next such as Dominick Cruz. But if this fight falls down, he already has a name for his next fight in his mind, i.e. Adrian Yanez.

Sean O Malley continued, “I thought Adrian Yanez had a good fight last fight, I thought that would be a good matchup. I thought that was an impressive performance, I called him out, and he kind of accepted. He said that I want ranked opponents but I don’t know where he heard that from. I’ve called out ranked guys but I’ve never specifically said I want a ranked opponent.”

“I’ve called out Dominick Cruz, Pedro Munhoz, Petr Yan, Cody, I’ve called out ranked guys but I’m not really worried about getting a ranked opponent. I think Adrian Yanez would be a good matchup next. Obviously not counting out Paiva, gotta go out there and take care of him first, but I think regardless, Yanez is a next good fight. People want it.” {H/T MMA Fighting}
