Fight news around O’Malley

Apart from dabbling in things outside of the sport, Sean O’Malley was recently in the news after an update of his 8-fight contract with the UFC came to light. The Bantamweight surprisingly negotiated the contract with the promotion without any manager beside him. Although he claims he did ask for PPV points without being a champion, the UFC reportedly denied him that request. Despite not disclosing the figures involved with this new contract, O’Malley did express that he was content with the deal.
