The promising bantamweight proved them wrong by bouncing back in style with two stoppage wins. O’Malley also recently revealed why he avoids fighting top-ranked fighters in the UFC. ‘Sugar’ stated that he would get paid the same whether he fought the champion Petr Yan or someone unranked in the UFC, such as Kris Moutinho. 

After his win over Moutinho, ‘Sugar’ was slated to fight UFC veteran Frankie Edgar. However, recent reports suggest Edgar has been booked for a fight against Chito Vera.
