Rising Bantamweight and UFC superstar Sean O’Malley has clarified why he is hesitant to fight Cody Garbrandt. Despite the fact that the fight is being hyped already.

Even both fighters were interested in fighting each other, But O’Malley has changed his tone after UFC 269. He believes fighting Cody, who has only won one fight since 2017, is a loss-loss situation for him.
If we had both fighters emerging as victorious at UFC 269, there would have been no question that a fight between Sean O’Malley and Cody Garbrandt would have happened.
Nonetheless, with Cody losing, once again by way of knockout, ‘Suga’ claims the fight no longer does much for him.
“It’s just tough. If I go out there and beat him… I do not see it doing much for me right now. He’s 1-6 or something in his last seven. I think he’s won one fight since 2017. I go out there and beat him, it doesn’t really do what it would’ve (done) three or four fights ago.
