Sean O’Malley has officially announced who he would like to fight next. Coming off his bounce back KO of Thomas Almeida, O’Malley is looking at a step up in both competition and in the rankings.
O’Malley (13-1), posted a video on his Youtube channel titled “Suga Calls Out Who?” In which he lays out why Dominick Cruz should fight him.
“Sup Dom, heard you’re looking for a big fight? Who’s a bigger fight than me right now?” O’Malley asked while dribbling a basketball.
As O’Malley goes through the perspective bantamweight contenders, he explains why Cruz can’t or shouldn’t fight them. Then, he asks again, “Who’s a bigger fight?”
A potential matchup between O’Malley and Cruz became a talking point after Chael Sonnen said he had received a text from Cruz saying he wanted to fight O’Malley.
Cruz (23-3), didn’t rule out the fight completely, however he did tell ESPN’s Ariel Helwani that Sonnen “made this story up 100%.”
Now that the call out is official, we will have to wait and see Cruz’s response and whether or not the UFC is on board with this perspective matchup.
