Sean O’Malley ‘okay with losing’ to Petr Yan because of he’s conscious about he’s ‘gonna be an international champ in the future’

 

Sean O’Malley has never been scared of losing because of he’s conscious about he will become a UFC champion in the future.

O’Malley has just one loss on his MMA document in the past, an injury-TKO defeat to Marlon Vera at UFC 252 that spotted ‘Suga’ finished throughout the first round after suffering a leg injury that resulted in him to lose his stability and fall to the ground.

O’Malley bounced once more from that fight with a highlight-reel knockout of Thomas Almeida at UFC 260 followed by the use of back-to-back stoppage victories over Kris Moutinho and Raulian Paiva at UFC 264 and UFC 269.

O’Malley’s momentum took a success in his next fight after landing an unintended eye poke on Pedro Munhoz that led to a controversial No Contest (NC). Rather than schedule a rematch, O’Malley will take on former bantamweight champion Petr Yan in a imaginable title eliminator at UFC 280.

This is surely the toughest take a look at of O’Malley’s career, person who he expects to transport with flying colors. With that discussed, he’s conscious about a loss will perfect be a minor setback and won’t affect his self trust going forward, predicting ‘world champ’ status without reference to the top lead to opposition to Yan.

“The closer the fight gets, the additional confident I’ll become. I’ll get once more to camp, get dialed in, get once more to sparring, get once more to eating perfect, napping perfect, merely getting the whole thing dialed in,” O’Malley prompt ESPN in a up to the moment interview (h/t BJPenn.com). “I’m merely gonna get further confident since the fight gets closer. Then fight evening time, I’m gonna win that fight. Every fight that I am going into, I’m okay with losing. I’m not hooked up to I have to win this fight. I’m gonna be an international champ in the future, 100 computer. I’ve under no circumstances been scared of losing, so I consider the closer the fight gets, the additional confident I’m gonna become.”

UFC 280, which is expected to function Yan vs. O’Malley on the main card, will occur on Oct. 22 at the Etihad Space in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
