Garbrandt went off on Sean O’Malley after the latter trolled him about his take on Jake Paul. While O’Malley kept his jabs to an economical word limit, Garbrandt was certainly fired up about their exchange. Although Cody ‘No Love’ has his sights set on regaining the title shot he was booked for, there may be a detour on its way.

Chiefly, the mere mention of Jake Paul seems to be increasingly divisive in the combat sports world. The notion that Jake Paul would beat him didn’t sit well with Garbrandt, and he launched into action.

Cody Garbrandt vs Sean O’Malley

‘No Love’ has been on record to say that he would make his octagon return no sooner than the first quarter of 2021. He was removed from his UFC 255 title fight against 125-pound king Deiveson Figueiredo after suffering a bicep tear. However, it came out that COVID-19 also played a huge part in derailing his booking.

Sean O’Malley lost his first professional outing in his last bout to Marlon Vera in the co-main event for UFC 252. ‘Chito’ was able to land a leg kick that seemingly caused a temporary nerve shutdown in O’Malley’s leg. The hindrance swiftly led to the finish and ‘Sugar’ Sean is keen to re-enter the win column.

Securing a fight against Garbrandt will be massive in regaining the heights that his star power was at before he lost. Cody Garbrandt remains a top billing athlete, and fans always tune in to see him throw heavy hands. The trend in his fights is usually that someone tends to slouch over and hit the canvas. With impressive KO’s on both their resumes, it’s unlikely that the bout will see the final horn.
