Sean O’Malley has exploded onto the MMA scene with utmost swagger and style. In just a few years of professional fighting, the Irish-American prospect has carved himself a special place in the sport. Chiefly, it has to do with his funky style, signature hairstyles, and random tattoos. However, the primary quality is his carefree attitude.

Recently, he gave a live demonstration of his personality as he brought up the latest UFC PPV price hike. Notably, the bantamweight directly questioned the head honcho of UFC, Dana White, for raising PPV rates. He said, in the latest episode of his YouTube podcast, “Dana White raises pay-per-view by five dollars. What the hell are we doing here Dana?”

Later, he also trolled the motion as fans have the liberty to easily access UFC pay-per-view events through illegal mediums. “But, could be. It is just so easy to stream it illegally,” ‘Sugar’ said. “Not talking from experience, but just saying it.” 

Meanwhile, he also proposed a solution for the illegal streamers as he advised ‘whoever’ looks after legal streams to learn how to ‘hack’ the illegal ones.

“Whoever is in control of legal streams at the UFC, they need someone that is good enough at hacking right before the main event starts. Every single time that they just shut it boom… right before the good stuff,” O’Malley continued.

Apparently, O’Malley (15-1) won’t be facing any flak for his comments as his statement was funny and did not support or discourage the decision.

Sean O’Malley is excited about Paddy Pimblett’s return

Yet another demonstration of O’Malley’s happy-go-lucky attitude was when the Irish-American showcased his excitement about Paddy Pimblett. Notably, in one of his Twitch streams, ‘Sugar’ displayed his excitement as another young and rising prospect (Pimblett) mentioned him in a video.

O’Malley was appreciative of Pimblett for the mentions and spoke well of his UFC colleague, and even called ‘The Baddy’ his ‘Bud’.

“Oh shit! Paddy the Baddy f*cking hosted me. Paddy I feel like we’re buds. So we’re like not buds but we’re buds, you know what I mean. Appreciate with the raid dude. Congrats on all your f*cking success. And can’t wait to watch your next fight,” O’Malley said.
