Sean O’Malley on Aljamain Sterling: “He acts like he calls the shots”

UFC bantamweight contender Sean O’Malley commented on champion Aljamain Sterling, saying that “he acts like he calls the shots.”

O’Malley meets Sterling in the main event of UFC 292, which takes place on August 19 at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. The UFC announced the fight before Sterling was fully committed to it, citing a potential injury suffered in his recent title defense against Henry Cejudo at UFC 288. Fortunately for Sterling, doctors cleared him and he will indeed take on O’Malley in what will be his next title defense in the headliner of the UFC 292 card.

Speaking on his YouTube channel recently, O’Malley criticized Sterling for what he says is acting like he calls the shots. “Sugar” criticized Sterling for first suggesting he needed more time to fight him, before suggesting that he thinks he has more power with UFC president Dana White than he actually odes.

“He did just fight, but look at Izzy. Motherf*cker fought four times in 12 months. You have four months. It was four months from the fight. Take two months off and then train hard for two months. It ain’t f*cking science. … It’s called discipline.” O’Malley said (h/t “He acts like he calls the shots,” O’Malley said. “I’m listening to the UFC. I’m not acting like I call the shots, either. Dana said August, so I said August. It’s not like I told Dana, ‘Hey, f*cking run it August. I run this sh*t.’ I said, ‘Hey, Uncle Dana.’ I didn’t call him daddy like he said. I said, ‘Hey, Uncle Dana. When do you want me to beat up Aljo?’ And it happened to be August. I don’t know what his point is here. I don’t know what his plan is by even tweeting that.”
