Henry Cejudo doesn’t see much of a challenge in Sean O’Malley.

Rising star Sean O’Malley took on top ten bantamweight contender Pedro Munhoz at UFC 276. O’Malley was facing a major jump up in competition as he clashed with the first ranked contender he faced. Although he looked competitive in the outing, there was an anticlimactic end as their bout was ruled a no-contest due to an unintentional eye poke from O’Malley.

Former two-division UFC champion Henry Cejudo does not seem to be impressed with “Suga” Sean.

Henry Cejudo believes Sean O’Malley will be a tune-up fight

In an episode of The Triple C & Schmo Show, Henry Cejudo trashed Sean O’Malley for talking a big game but not backing it up.

“First of all, his performance absolutely sucked. He talks a lot. If anybody that talks – I’m proven, man. I don’t think I talk enough, to be quite honest with you.

“I just think he thinks he’s better than what he really is, and to me that’s a problem, so I challenged him. I said, ‘What’s up, man? Are you ready?’ He’s like, ‘Cuh-cuh-cuh …’ I should start calling him ‘Stuttering Sean.’ He freaking tripped over his own damn words. But anyways, he doesn’t want this smoke.

“That would be the worst. It would be like Jake Paul facing Jon Jones. I would eat that dude alive.”

“Triple C” aims to finish O’Malley within 2 rounds

“The Messenger” is so confident in his abilities over O’Malley that he wants to challenge himself more. According to Cejudo, he’ll aim to finish “Suga” Sean within two rounds and claims O’Malley would never take the fight.

“I think that might be a good tune-up fight, but the goal for me for Sean is to get rid of him in two rounds. Like, don’t make him go past two rounds. So that’s my goal. But he wouldn’t take the fight. Stylistically, I’m just too smart, I’m too experienced, I’m too tough, and I’m definitely too damn good looking.

“I would take him down. I would do some nasty things to him. I’d kick that front leg of his and then I’d slowly start putting may hands on him, and that’s the game plan.”

Cejudo has been calling for his return to fighting ever since announcing his retirement. O’Malley could be the perfect opponent considering his celebrity as opposed to Cejudo’s accolades.
