“Shut Up and Stay Protected by UFC” – Petr Yan Rips Sean O’Malley

Petr Yan will compete for the vacant Bantamweight Championship at UFC 251 against Jose Aldo. His enthusiasm was on display ever since the UFC announced the bout. However, he has had to spend time dealing with fellow divisional fighter Sean O’Malley, who has shared his opinion on the Russian, thereby triggering an entertaining social media war. 

Petr Yan mocks Sean O’Malley’s reach 

The 3rd ranked Bantamweight contender took to social media to highlight his experience over the 25-year-old. He wrote, “I did boxing for 8 years and during that time I’ve beat up as many lanky long dudes as you have hairs on your head curly boy. Use your long arms to stick it up right into your a**hole. Your reach will be useful only for that (Sean O’Malley)”

The tweet came after days of silence from both fighters. A few days ago, Yan branded ‘Sugar’ as “Kukla Boy.” Furthermore, he said that the rising contender is trying to be Conor McGregor. 

It all began when ‘Sugar’ hit out at ‘No Mercy’ following a tweet where he said, “My time!” In response, O’Malley replied, “Calm down, you can’t even spell your name right, Peter.” 

‘Sugar’ directs his attacks to the Russian fighter’s height. Meanwhile, ‘No Mercy’ continues to mock the youngster’s eye-catching hairdo. On June 13, he commented, “You are working for me now curly boi.”

Also, earlier today, he hit back at O’Malley, claiming to make “Lil dudes snore.” In the tweet, he asked ‘Sugar’ to “shave his rainbow curls” and “shut up and stay protected by the UFC.”

O’Malley has made a comeback to the UFC after 2 years out. At UFC 250 he put in a stunning walk-off KO against Eddie Wineland. Ever since then the fighter’s stock has soared and he is expressing supreme confidence in engaging with a Championship contender

Does ‘No Mercy’ have a point in labeling him as a McGregor wannabe? The banter is undoubtedly fun for netizens and can be used if the UFC ever decides to book a fight between the two.
