Sean O’Malley is currently one of the rising stars in the UFC and has certainly worked hard to establish himself there. ‘Suga’ has a solid track record and earned the respect of many.
On the other hand, Conor McGregor remains one of the biggest names in the history of combat sports. McGregor had a lot of notoriety prior to his famous UFC 194 fight with Aldo in December 2014. However, his popularity soared after he beat him in 13 seconds.
Sean O’Malley has repeatedly acknowledged McGregor as one of the people he wants to mimic his career after as well. While speaking to TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter, UFC President Dana White claimed that O’Malley will become a huge star like McGregor.
O’Malley is on the cusp of being a massive global superstar. There was talk earlier about Conor, he said, ‘I’d like to be as big as Conor’ and stuff like that. Well, if you want to compare it to Conor – this is like the Conor vs. Jose Aldo fight.”
We will have to wait and see whether Sean O’Malley will end up becoming a huge superstar like Conor McGregor or not.
