In a Q/A session with his fans on YouTube, O’Malley said, “Honestly I re-watched the first fight, and I completely forgot it went like that. Conor was looking good, Conor was looking sharp, Conor was looking fast, Conor was winning the boxing exchanges, in my opinion. Either one of these guys could f***in win the fight they both knocked each other out.”

Sean O’Malley continues, “Who do I got that’s the question? I got Conor, man I wanna see Conor win cause I wanna see another huge fight. I love big crazy events Conor vs Dustin 3 is a huge event.”

‘The Sugar Show’ roots for Conor McGregor and thinks he will win the decider at UFC 264. O’Malley feels the Irishman was looking promising in the rematch, which is why he will get the job done this time. Another major reason for his pick is that ‘The Sugar Show’ wants to see another mega event which is only possible when it has McGregor in it.

A win for ‘The Notorious’ will definitely fulfill his dream because McGregor would try to capture the lightweight strap again.

Sean O’Malley will also fight at UFC 264

‘The Sugar Show’ will hope for the good times to roll as he will face Kris Moutinho in his sixth UFC bout. It’s his second trip to the octagon this year after the last fight at UFC 260 against Thomas Almeida.

The bout is set to feature in the main card at UFC 264. A win over Moutinho could finally place him in the bantamweight rankings. For now, O’Malley still remains an unranked UFC fighter.
