Paddy Pimblett on Sean O'Malley: "He’s a bit of a bitch-ass, isn’t he? Breaks his ankle and blames his loss on that. He’s got clean strikes. He’s got good standup. But as soon as he gets put in there with a decent grappler, he’s gonna get beat." And O'Malley fires back: "That’s not very nice."

Sean O'Malley is pretty sucking Irish too... Sean in Ireland is like John in America.

Sean doesn't care lmao he's here to make money and BOUNCE


-0op

Good for him. He's getting more money crushing 135lbs cans than top 10 fighters


Much-Tree-3533

like he say's, fight the worst opponent you can for the most money, people call him a can crusher but he's just a businessman


[deleted]

He’s both. I don’t see this argument being thrown around when MVP fights. Typical UFC bias


luapowl

yup. MVP is just getting paid, just like Sean. can tell because they fight cans and they always try and make a show of it. seeking walk-off KOs, mad multi coloured hair, fucking pokeballs. they both have a fan base that loves em because of it. it is weird that they’re viewed differently by the wider community. at least from what i’ve seen.


PostsAnimalGifs

To MVP's credit, he has a rematch with Douglas Lima now in October, and Lima is legit. Guess it might be one last hurrah from Page and making an attempt at the title next if he wins that one (but that's a big *if*).


JohnnyStrides

Yeah, Lima is an elite striker and neither guy is good on the ground. So... 3 rounds of wrestling incoming? Hopefully we get a fun standup match and not MVP vs. Daley 2


swaggplollol

Did you watch the first fight? Its gonna be all stand up again


yondaoHMC

Douglas has a pretty good ground game: he's a BJJ black belt and has plenty of submission wins, maybe his wrestling might be lackluster, but his ground game is good.


JohnnyStrides

I would have to disagree. The Amasov (and the first Rory fight) show he has massive holes in his ground game.


GarretBarrett

Sure but those dudes are pretty high level. Lima has a competent ground game. He's not Till or someone like that. He's not gonna submit Damien Maia but he can hold his own down there with Bellator's best. Strength is certainly his standup but saying he's this terrible guy on the floor is just disingenuous.


tegeusCromis

Respect to him for fighting Lima in the first place. He performed well, too, despite the iconic KO. Looked like he belonged in there with him but screwed up.


RATMpatta

I'm no fan of either guy as cancrushing is just boring to me but you have to respect both of their decisions to do it in this environment that is blatantly anti-fighter.


Shmittymcjohnson

I love watching MVP fight and I don’t mind his antics I think he’s good for the sport. I don’t understand when a fighter gets so much hate on here. I can understand not liking a guy but you’d think some of these fighters farted in their moms mouth with how they react.


MomboDM

I dont see the connection to MVP on this one at all. Hes not specifically holding out on tougher opponents because of pay. Hes rematching Lima soon, and participated in the tourny where he lost to him (where he also beat daley). Theyre both characters for sure, but thats about as far as it goes. No hate to Sean either, get your money, the kid deserves it. I just like to see that forward progression in fighters and Sean doesnt seem to want to take those steps. He got a following before being a top contender and is leveraging that before making the step up. This might also speak to the disparity of fighter pay between organizations, but I dont know MVPs numbers since he blew up around the time of his cyborg fight.


Elagabalus_The_Hoor

There is literally zero comparisons to be made between the two.


underwoodlopez

Let me know when O'Malley fights someone like Lima or even Daley.


MeowthThatsRite

I replied to the guy above but the difference is that one guy is 8 years younger and still sort of on the rise vs the other having been a pro for 10 years and having fought basically exclusively cans that entire time and hasn’t looked great when he’s fought people who are closer to his level.


Futures_Trunks

Sean has one tune-up against a late notice replacement, and now he’s on can crusher on the level of MVP. Yet another example of why mma fans are THE worst


Py72o

He was scheduled to fight smolka, don’t act like the last minute replacement was the only can


albertzz1

People get annoyed at mvp because he'll fight 3 0-0 guys and then be ranked #3, not his fault but still rubs people the wrong way


NotFrankSalazar

Yea people say shit about MVP all the time, and celebrated when he got KO’d. Myself being one of them.


nest0251

Lmao. Everyone says this about MVP. When he got bodied everyone shat on him too.


MeowthThatsRite

I guess the difference is that Sean is 26 and still sort of on the come up. Where as MVP has been a pro since 2012 and has done nothing but crush cans basically the entire time.


tattoedblues

When is Mario Van Peebles fighting again


jaytee158

Is this /s? That's basically all people talk about when MVP fights


Nervous_Project6927

mvp gets shit on constantly tho hes fighting the homeless and math teachers


dtrudel

I get the point you’re trying to make, but Sean is fighting UFC competition, he’s getting good matchups but it’s not the same


JakeArvizu

>but Sean is fighting UFC competition, UFC's low level fighters are pretty much no different than most other organizations. UFC has good depth in their top 15 but let's not act like people who found success in the UFC haven't gone onto lose to middle of the road fighters in other orgs


throwaway012984576

Lima is better than anyone Sean has fought


Wolfhound_Papa

Ya but MVP talks a big game as though he thinks he’s the best fighter in his division. Sean on the other hand is owning up to what he’s doing.


PaybackDummy

In that same vein, people call him a really skilled fighter but he's just a businessman. Funny to pretend that he's great when he's so unproven, starching full-time mainstays at the paint factory.


Pestili

Is that even smart though? If you don’t fight good fighters, you’ll never get a huge contract. Champs get like $300k all the way up to $1 million+ If you just continue to fight newcomers you’re never going to get a big contract or ppv points. If Sean just turns down all good fighters, I seriously doubt the UFC will give him a good contract after this one expires.


PerfectlySplendid

Ufc will give him a contract as long as they believe they will profit. He’s currently a draw, so I assume they will. Casuals like myself like watching him. We pay the ppv.


[deleted]

[удалено]


DanPanosian

agreed. Eventually fans are just curious how a fighter stacks up to the competition.


tylerforeal

No way. Look at Cowboy, Masvidal, Diaz. These guys haven't looked Champion level quality in forever but they are draws anyway because their fans like to watch them fight/like their style (Masvidal fighting Usman makes this look weird but he has like 40 fights, for a long time he wasn't and I don't think he's taking super seriously as a contender anymore). Sugar is one of these. He's exciting to watch due to striking + meme knock outs- I don't think casuals will care if he's Championship quality or not.


Mahlegos

> Sugar is one of these. He's exciting to watch due to striking + meme knock outs- I don't think casuals will care if he's Championship quality or not. Difference is all the guys you mentioned rose up the ranks and saw where they stacked up. They didn’t just exclusively hang out in the peripheries crushing cans for paychecks. If they had, I’d say there’s a good chance they wouldn’t have reached the levels of popularity they did. An example of this is Mas. He didn’t hit the levels of fandom until his run leading to his title shot. Before that he was just a journeyman that most fans didn’t really care about. If O’Malley continues doing so, he’s more likely to end up like MVP than the guys you mentioned. I doubt he does though, I’d bet he gets a bit better contract and looks to rise up the ranks.


PerfectlySplendid

Nah. I host a fight night every ppv and for fight nights that seem hype. People don’t care. They don’t even know. They zone out talking and drinking until the fight starts, watch some dude with colorful hair beat the shit out of some one, then go back to talking. That’s the casual audience and what UFC wants. Even though you guys are the heart and soul of mma, there’s more casuals and UFC wants their money.


[deleted]

[удалено]


PerfectlySplendid

Going to disagree there. Just because I host Saturday parties and pay for a ppv for entertainment doesn’t mean I know anything about it or wouldn’t stop watching immediately if my guests wanted something else.


JakeArvizu

Hosting every PPV definitely isn't casual. You're not the target audience. You're basically the same as everyone here you'll watch almost any fight that is not a casual.


Watsitooya_

He says this now but hasn't he tried getting big fights in the past with henry and cruz. He didnt get a good name for his rankings so he started saying this


gingeronimooo

Well O’Malley did come into the UFC pretty young. Maybe he is just gaining more experience, training his weak spots and getting better before he cares to push. If that’s the case, his criticism is unwarranted (for that at least)


[deleted]

[удалено]


tylerforeal

Not true. Maybe PFL or Bellator is a better payday for him in the future. If he goes up and loses quickly he could be out of the UFC, while currently he gets safe fights and plenty of air time to build his brand/experience.


BRlEN

idk man, he was talking so much smoke about being the best than got called out for cans and spun it that way. With how butt hurt he was on his loss I think it is how he can cope with fighting guys nowhere near him.


spidii

It's basic risk reward analysis. He goes for low risk, guaranteed reward vs high risk high reward. If he became champ he'd be even more of a sensation than he already is. He'd start making millions per fight. But the risk of getting KOd/losing your starpower/brand after a string of messy losses just isn't worth the gamble.


Skovich

If he doesn't want to fight higher competition where a higher pay is warranted then that's okay with me. But he shouldn't cry about not getting paid his worth when his value isn't high in the first place.


deaqnosilence

I dislike O'Malley in general, especially after the Chito loss, but there is no universe in which i can't agree with him. Fucking pay me more to fight the best guys, or keep feeding me cans.


iWentRogue

And hes got the perfect style for that. Smooth and clean just as long as they don’t put him in there with a beast. He already said he gets paid all the same so for sure he rather scrap with cans all day.


[deleted]

He’s the UFCs Michael Venom Paige


Much-Tree-3533

Michael Venom Paige Vanzant?


SmokeyMcHaze

MVP has way more flashier striking.


TangoFantango

He'll have to fight some stiffer competition once he comes towards the end of his contract though so the UFC can use it against him if he loses.


johnnyhypersnyper

Probably, but with how many last minute replacements and short notice fights the UFC cobbles together, he could probably keep using his hand injuries to delay until he wants to fill in against a last minute opponent or gets offered someone so they can have his name on a card


Parking_Assistance_8

I agree that Sean is making the correct decision for himself, but I really don’t understand why fans are so happy about this.


eccocane1

They are living vicariously through him and don't want to see their avatar crash and burn


mad_scientist434

>Breaks his ankle and blames his loss on that Yes, yes, anyone would’ve lost with a broken ankle


Jsp16

Except O'Malley . Undefeated


OverthrownLemon

His 13-0 shirts are hilarious imo just for how hard he's going into the character. He should dip into his hater market and sell some "suga bones" shirts so he can make money on both ends.


GOATAldo

It was actually kinda funny when Logan Paul asked him about his loss and he was like "It was deemed a no contest by the Suga athletic commission"

Bad Paddy has a conviction for being caught with weed when he was younger too, I doubt he cares if Sean smokes

In the interview that this quote is from. He also talks about how he’s impressed that O’Malley is a “pothead” but still gets shit done. He then says “fair play to him lad”


jsmoooth265

I really dont get why people think all pot heads cant get shit done. It’s just like anything else, it effects people differently. Some can be completely functioning alcoholics and methheads. You don’t think there can be functional pot heads? There’s tons of em.

Joshua-Jo

I don't know why it feels like Sean is bigger in size than Paddy


Vsxelizabeth

Sean is actually only an inch taller, and has a one inch reach disadvantage and is much, much skinnier. But he’s massive for a BW.


afightguy

Taller yeah, but Paddy looks like a bodybuilder in comparison to Sean.


dirtyjerz34

Paddy looked massive in that fight. I thought he should stay at featherweight but he filled out. O’Malley is hollow like a bird and he’s the one that did peds.


therealdanhickey

Fun fact Sean is the same height as DC


cats-with-mittens

Honestly, I expected Sean was taller.


StipesRightHand

He is, DC is 5’9” not 5’11”.

Joshua-Jo

Yeah ik ik but for some reason from his interviews and stuff he looks like a 14 year old boy.


Kasumi_0

It's the face and the hair, looks like an 80's schoolboy.


gernsengears

nobody seems to be mentioning that O'Malley's grappling is not indicative of your typical one-dimensional striker. He seems to have taken to grappling in the time he's been doing it, just watch his performance at Quintet


wiliammm19999

People think that because you’re a high level striker you automatically have terrible wrestling.


IHatePublicToilets

Being good at submission grappling isn't the same as having good wrestling though


Shoo-eeeeee

Almost like you gotta mix it all together or something.


kingslayer-0

Like a mix martial arts?


ron-darousey

Combined combat


taway69asdf

Or just watch him not even attempt wrist control against chito Vera and get elbowed to sleep. Grappling in grappling matches and grappling in the octagon are very different.


gernsengears

I actually agree with you and think his current grappling hasn’t been tested in an MMA context, but is pretty good in pure grappling so it’s TBD. Just saying that Paddy’s overlooking some things in his assessment. But I disagree about the Chito fight, whatever happened to his leg is the real headline there


a_moo_cow

Sean's leg injury shouldn't have stopped him from defending those elbows though, as the guy you replied to said it was his lack of wrist control that was the issue. It's very rare that you see someone instantly get pounded out from guard at 135 without being rocked on the feet. It's not like he has a great grappling resume either, his only Quintet win was against Takanori Gomi who has always been susceptible to submissions (and was about 10 years past his prime when Sean fought him) His MMA grappling isn't really TBD, it's proven to be lacking.


Mnudge

These guys are the kings of self-hype. They were made for each other


_ncko

I mean, breaking your ankle is a pretty good excuse for losing a fight.


4w4d

Didn't stop Daniel LaRusso


kingslayer-0

Well he cheated, that was an illegal kick


Groovy_Peppers

I like both Paddy and Sugar. I would say that there are unknowns to how good Sean is at grappling because we haven’t really seen him do it in the octagon yet, but that doesn’t mean he’s bad at it. He could be a beast at grappling but prefers striking and going for KOs. From his podcast I think Sean took it well and seemed more confused by paddy’s comments than anything and Sean still showed respect for what Paddy is doing. I would like to see Sean grapple in a fight though.


IsleofManc

I agree with this fully, I like both guys and I don't think either were out of line with their reactions or comments. The headline also cuts off part of Paddy's quote. There were sentences in between the above ones where Paddy says: "He's (O'Malley) a little pothead, so hat's off to him lad, he's still getting shit done while he's stoned half the time. So well in Sean O'Malley, but I do reckon you're a tool... He's alright with his fans isn't he? I like people who interact with the fans because without fans we wouldn't be where we are now, know what I mean? I don't like people who don't interact with fans, I think they're arseholes, know what I mean? So the fact that he does, makes me like him."


roboaurelius

His grappling isn’t bad I have seen it in person. He competed in Quintet and got a sub. He also trains with the best BJJ Bantamweight in the world Augusto Mendes. He’s not a total scrub on the ground.


a_moo_cow

He subbed old man Takanori Gomi who has always been known for being susceptible to submissions, not much of an accomplishment


Wulfsgraad

Yet as someone else pointed out, he made no attempt at wrist control against Chito and got elbowed into the dirt as a result. That's fairly entry-level stuff, relatively speaking


roboaurelius

I think the fact his ankle was destroyed might have been impacting his grappling in that moment.


NateDiazWeedPen

I love them both. Probably gonna be my top 2 favorite fighters soon, as Sean’s already number 1 and I’m quickly falling in love will Paddy. I see more potential in Sean as of now, Championship wise, not to say paddy can’t improve because he seems well rounded, defense is just gaping hole. As for Sean the grappling is more of a question mark than a hole, the heart of Sean may be a hole


JuanFabian

Lol you're using the word hole too much


NateDiazWeedPen

Hole


TouchdownTea

Please don’t let this be the future of the sport. I know some people are into this stuff but I find it so boring and repetitive. Don’t need forced gossip and feuds over tweets and interviews.


LemonHerb

This is the present and the future of the sport. If your favorite fighters don't do well on social media your favorite fighters probably aren't going to get good fights.


mulligun

Yawn. This "MMA purist" take has always been dumb. If you actually didn't like this stuff you wouldn't watch interviews with fighters at all, you'd just watch the fights and this shit wouldn't matter to you. Why else would you watch interviews? So you can see fighters repeat "he's a strong opponent but I've had a great camp, best shape of my life"? The reality is you just don't like this particular fighter. Paddy's pretty genuine as far as shit talkers go.


jaytee158

Isn't this the history of the sport?


TouchdownTea

To a degree. Maybe I’m in the minority, I just don’t find this stuff entertaining at all. Feels like soap opera and reality TV gossip. If others like it fair enough, I might just be getting old.


S_Steiner_Accounting

It's actually calmed down a bunch. 5 years ago at the height of conor mania guys thought the formula was simply talk shit = drawl and everyone was trying to follow conor's blueprint talking shit in the media and post fight interviews and being a character people remember.

AliensPlzTakeMe

I'm at work, can someone tell me what happens?


crazylegs789

He gets wrestle fucked for most of the fight. Clearly losing, he acts like a punch that grazes his back\\side of head rocks him. Ref stopped fight, sugar wins by dq because he said he couldn't go on. It was sloppy gnp by his opponent for sure, but such a pussy move and a ton of acting from Sean.


blazdersaurus

Wow, what a fucking bitch move. Between this, the Chito Vera fight, and being friends with Tekashi69 it amazes me that this guy has fans over the age of 18.


JonasSimbacca

Personally I think breaking your ankle in the middle of a fight is a perfectly reasonable excuse for losing that fight.


Scarsforstories

The exact same can be said about Pimblett with a competent striker


Crumpf

Not sure how people criticize his grappling when he has done little to no grappling in his UFC career thus far


AframesStatuette

He had a chance to grapple Chito but didn't do shit except take elbows to the face.


ReallyDrunkPanda

Paddy: he's a bitch ass Swan: hey, y'ah don't say that!


AgentlemanNeverTells

Paddy’s a douche, why talk shit to someone in Different weight class.


AttemptingToThink

I mean, as soon as Paddy is matched with a decent striker, he gets KO’d too so


axelfreed

Rat behaviour to take that from what he said. Typical journo stirring.


Wulfsgraad

I don't know the context in which Paddy was mentioning Sean but it's a little fucking strange to talk shit about a guy 2 classes lighter than you


Kgb725

If Jon can shit talk Tyson griffin anything is up for grabs


LastBrainCellofYours

He’s literally asked to talk about the various fighters


adamfcb

To be fair, he also said he really likes and respects Sean O'Malley for how he treats his fans.


redneck_poetry

With all the leg breaks recently Paddy probably shouldnt be poking the karma gods.


Recent-Emergency9680

Original_PaperKutZ

Breaking your fucking ankle in a fight gives you one of the best excuses imo


[deleted]

Harsh, but O’Malley does have some bitch in him (in the context of other fighters lol). Look at his one amateur loss, I’ve never seen a person so blatantly give up. It’s why he will never be champ


Duinuogwuin14

> Look at his one amateur loss Just looked this up... this article says his only amateur loss too, but when he gets on the mic at the end he says "this is my second loss." Weird. https://www.essentiallysports.com/ufc-264-mma-news-a-look-at-sean-omalleys-only-loss-as-an-amateur-mma-fighter/ https://youtu.be/TXn2xVg6wFA?t=377


dfreinc

he looks like a child in this. not sure people should be putting so much stock into this. 😂


Duinuogwuin14

Agreed, it was 8 years ago and he was about 18.


GOATAldo

No. If you had one bad performance when you were still a literal teenager you're a no heart bum and you will never be champion.


NateDiazWeedPen

Not sure if this is the fight he was referring to, but I was listening to him talk on his podcast a longggg time ago (around the time of the Chito loss) and he was talking about his two amateur losses and he said he isn’t a sore loser because he wasn’t mad when he lost in the past, because he was just outclassed and he knew he had things to work on, and this dude was a blackbelt (if this was the fight he was referring to) but the Chito loss doesn’t sit well with him because it’s not like chitos skills were better it was just a lucky shot


AreYouDaftt

Look at Charles Oliveira, he has a history of giving up when fights get tough and now he's champ. Anything can happen


Zerix1234

He was young at the time. Just because someone quits doesn’t mean they can’t be champ in the future. Look at Oliveira


PetrYanSimp

Great example, Oliveira had been looked at as a quitter for years


mgx_

and the fight that won him the champ he looked dominated for most of it


PetrYanSimp

Idk about dominant for most of it. He came out strong with the wrestling and back take but he took a lot of damage once Chandler got it, he faced some real adversity which imo is one of the biggest things he has improved at. Lee got some good shots in and Teymur fouled the shit out of him early as well but he dug down, toughed it out, and finished all three of those guys


[deleted]

[удалено]


PetrYanSimp

My b, read it as “he looked dominate for most of it”


JuanFabian

He looked about as good as McGregor did in the 3rd Poirier fight lol. He was basically surviving at the end


WhereIsMyKidAt

And everyone knows Conor had no chance of coming back in round 2. Absolute shame, would’ve definitely preferred Charles as champ over Chandler.


S_Steiner_Accounting

Lawler too. Quit on the stool between rounds from leg kicks in the Spratt fight. Never really got the stink from that off him until Manhoef kicked his leg off and he stayed in it and got the KO.


PetrYanSimp

Lawler vs Mahoef was nuts too


FrenchTrouDuc

I never understand this argument. People can and will evolve mentally over the course of their career. Suga was fucking 18 when he had that loss, cut him some slack. Honing your skills, getting good wins and building confidence will all change a fighter's mentality over the years. Also this endless pushing of the goalpost of what would make a fighter good or legitimate just for the sake of shitting on them is annoying. Most fighters in any given division will never be champ


Captain_Clover

The argument isn’t understandable, it’s a bunch of emotions about a fighter they don’t like wrapped up in the dogma of the hivemind.


cafrito

Chucky Olives is a prime example of this. He’s had the skills for years but his mentality has noticeably shifted over his last 3 fights. He had a war with Kevin Lee that resulted in a comeback late in the fight, next he dismantled Tony, and capped it off with beating Chandler for the belt. And this is a guy that people would often criticize for giving up when things didn’t go his way in a fight.


tooObviously

A war with Kevin Lee? I know this sub loves Oliveira but that's major hyperbole He dominated Tony and only showed his resilience in the chandler fight for a round


MeowthThatsRite

He overcame a whole mountain of adversity in that Chandler fight too.


LigmaBallsack

I can’t wait until he sleeps Dom and people do this exact thing and say it’s only because Dom’s old and/or washed. Haters gonna hate. Is=Is.


nest0251

I mean, Dom is fucking old tho. Now, him vs Aldo, that’s intriguing.


ShakeZula_ThaMicRula

Aldo is old


authenticfennec

But still a really good fighter


dyang44

Aldos been lookin like a killer at 135 though in stark contrast to dom recently


4lfie20

suleimanMagnifi

giving up is smart if you have been bested. people fuck up when they best themselves in their own heads.

Especially when youre 18. No reason to continue on and take big damage that early in your career, when youre not even being paid.


zakkwaldo

NateDiazWeedPen

[удалено]


toThe9thPower

He was 18 at the time. What is wrong with you? That doesn't make him a bitch and this sport would be better off if more fighters were able to call it quits earlier in the fight. Look at Kattar? That dude took serious damage against Holloway for no fucking reason. That fight should have been called long before it ended, but people like you really fuck the chances of that happening up because of the way you talk about fighters who don't go out on their shield. Way to be the absolute worst MMA has to offer. = Will add counters to your other stupid comments: His Vera fight had a nerve get hit that completely deadened his leg. He thought his career was over at that point, and still fought with a fucked up foot. We have seen this shit happen with other fighters as well, Chandler being a notable example. He also broke his leg against Soukhamtath and won. = Basically the fact of the matter is, you don't know what you are talking about.
