Regarding controversial social media personality and former kickboxer Andrew Tate, Sean O’Malley disagrees with the general opinion. An international discussion about Tate’s opinions and his suspected criminal past has been triggered by his recent detention in Romania.
On a TimboSugarShow episode, O’Malley and his friend and instructor Tim Welch discussed his incarceration. The Tate brothers’ online behaviour was reviewed, and “Sugar” supported his fellow podcaster’s assertions that they are innocent until proven guilty.
The top-ranked bantamweight in the UFC said:
“Top G I’m not sure if it was a prison man when [Andrew Tate] and his brother Tristan entered prison. Are they on a 30-day hold or have they already been released? Man, I don’t know. [Welch: Guilty until proven innocent] Yes, that is accurate. They’re obviously smart. They probably wouldn’t spend as much time online and engage in as much conversation if they were manufacturing bread illegally.”
Tim Welch, O’Malley’s buddy and coach, and he discussed his imprisonment during a TimboSugarShow episode. The two talked about the Tate brothers’ internet behaviour while “Sugar” echoed his colleague podcaster’s remarks about their innocence unless proven guilty.
The UFC bantamweight champion said:
“Top G I’m not sure if [Andrew Tate] and his brother Tristan were sent to prison. Are they still in custody or did they just get a 30-day hold? Man, I have no idea. Until guilt is established, according to Welch That is correct, I agree. Clearly intelligent, they are. I doubt they would spend as much time online and engage in as much communication if they were manufacturing bread in violation of the law.”
Prior to UFC 280, Sean O’Malley and Tim Welch met Andrew Tate during their trip to the United Arab Emirates. Tate was a guest on O’Malley’s programme as well.
Sean O’Malley “frustrated” with UFC bantamweight title picture
Aljamain Sterling, the current UFC bantamweight champion, was rumoured to be challenging Henry Cejudo for the 135-pound title at UFC 285 on March 5, but it now looks that fight has been scrapped. Sterling has stated that he won’t be ready for Cejudo until the summer, citing an ailment.
While Sterling recovers, Sean O’Malley, who is anticipated to face the winner, recently floated the possibility of his competing against Cejudo for the interim championship at UFC 285. O’Malley has been out of the ring since his razor-thin victory over Petr Yan in October of last year, and he is obviously eager to get back in.
The latest episode of The BrOMalley Show featured “Sugar,” who said:
“For the interim belt, I’ll be competing against Henry [Cejudo] right under there [in the UFC 285 bout programme]. Tell me it’s not on fire.”
I texted Sean Shelby and Hunter… Will you at least time an idea or at the very least state yes or no to whether Henry vs. Aljo will take place? I asked. They simply are ignorant. Aljamain Sterling is kind of waiting to see if he can or what, but I’m not sure if Henry or Aljo are doing the same. However, despite my frustration, I’m okay because I’m only training, if you get what I mean.
