Sean O'Malley


Sean O'Malley emphatically burst onto our screens during the second season of Dana White's Contender Series. What stood out to almost everyone was the confidence that seemed to emanate from this young and unassuming talent, as if he knew something that we did not. Since his first showing in the octagon, O'Malley has maintained his dominance and has gone on to gather one victory after another in the promotion.


With a reputation for his knockout prowess, Sean O'Malley quickly rose through the ranks in the bantamweight division of the UFC and challenged the former champion Aljamain Sterling at UFC 292 on August 19, 2023. Living up to the hype surrounding him, O'Malley quickly dispatched Sterling in the second round by shutting his lights off via a TKO and became the new champion of the bantamweight division. He defended his title at UFC 299 against Marlon Vera via a unanimous decision.
