Can Sean O’Malley become as great as Conor McGregor?

Fans have often compared O’Malley to the McGregor who was on his way to becoming one of the most talked-about UFC prospects. Back then, the ‘Notorious’ was already a great MMA athlete, as he had dominated every opponent before making his UFC debut. 

The ‘Notorious’ one was the Cage Warriors’ two-division champion of the featherweight and lightweight divisions. He was just repeating history when he became the UFC two-division champion.

Meanwhile, O’Malley has not accomplished a lot at this point. However, ‘Suga’ Sean still has an impressive resume. He has a professional MMA record of 14-1 and is one of the best knockout artists in the UFC bantamweight division.
