After his win, Sean O’Malley, the current bantamweight champ, challenged Topuria. Initially hesitant, ‘El Matador’ recently used X to call out ‘Sugar’.

Both aged 27, O’Malley and Topuria’s recent title wins over dominant former champs like Volkanovski and Sterling may signify a shift in the UFC.

Known for their striking prowess, a bout between O’Malley and Topuria could deliver an intense stand-up battle. Yet, ‘El Matador’ boasts a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and top-notch grappling skills from his Greco-Roman wrestling background.

As ‘Sugar’ gears up for his first title defense against Marlon Vera at UFC 299, eyes will be on him to secure a win, possibly setting the stage for a showdown with Topuria.

This Ilia vs. Sean fight would be huge! But they both have other fighters waiting to challenge them in their divisions. We can’t predict how this fight would go, but we know it would be a massive hit for the promotion.
