Sean O’Malley wants to see Aljamain Sterling put his UFC Bantamweight Championship on the line against T.J. Dillashaw.
Sterling is fresh off a victory over Petr Yan in their rematch and he now lays claim to being the undisputed UFC 135-pound titleholder. Yan had walked into the bout as the interim champion. Sterling won the fight via split decision.
During his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, the “Funk Master” called out Dillashaw, who was in attendance.
Sean O’Malley Intrigued By Possible Aljo vs. Dillashaw Bout
During episode 62 of BROMALLEY, Sean O’Malley said he’s all-in on a potential title match between the two.
“It’s an interesting fight. Aljo’s definitely not an easy fight for anybody. TJ is f*cking good, dude. He proved that without the needle in his butt he can compete at that highest level. It was impressive. I’m excited for that fight. TJ vs. Aljo’s a sick fight I think. Hopefully sooner than later.”
Rob Font vs. Marlon “Chito” Vera
This Saturday night (April 30), Rob Font and Marlon Vera will headline UFC Vegas 53. O’Malley admitted he’s struggling to make a prediction.
“Rob’s gonna be faster than Chito and I think Aldo is faster than Rob, and that plays a huge role in fights. I don’t know how I see it going. I think Rob’s gonna look good maybe in the early rounds. Chito’s good at just absorbing — he basically lost that fight to Frankie [Edgar] and then front kicked him. He’s good at just absorbing shots, being tough, and either coming on strong in the end or winning enough rounds.
“I don’t know how I see that fight playing out.”
