Sean O’Malley outlines plans after UFC 299, says he will be ‘as big as’ Conor McGregor
Despite the fact that Sean O’Malley has ascended the bantamweight class in just six years, his rising stardom has not missed a beat.
In the year 2020, at UFC 252, he suffered his only defeat at the hands of his subsequent opponent, Marlon Vera. O’Malley’s goal for the year is to finish as the most dominant athlete in all sports, and he hopes to accomplish this by avenging the defeat he suffered at UFC 299. Specifically, he emphasized his goal to achieve the same level of fame as Conor McGregor.
He stated the following in an interview with Megan Olivi of the UFC:
“By the end of the year, I would like to have another one in my possession and become the most famous athlete in the universe. Is not limited to combat sports. I believe that if I go out there and put together two performances that are both beautiful, I will soon be on the same level as Conor.
O’Malley expressed his desire to succeed in the same way as McGregor had, and he supplied statistics to support his claims. It was him who said:
“Since Conor was actually in the prime of his career, the UFC has grown by forty to fifty percent… I have a great deal more options to become a more prominent star, as well as a great deal more viewers. Individuals are always saying things like, “Oh, you want to be Conor man,” if I say things like that. Since he is the most famous athlete in the world of combat sports, it is only natural that I would like to be just as famous as he is. The way that people say things makes it sound a little bit ridiculous.
