Sean O’Malley Reacts to Conor McGregor’s Diss, Challenges Michael Chandler to Knock Him Out

UFC bantamweight champion Sean O’Malley has expressed his disappointment with Conor McGregor after the latter included him in a social media rant against athletes who have tested positive for the banned substance ostarine.

Sean O’Malley’s no longer a fan of Conor McGregor. That’s right. The UFC bantamweight champ found himself in McGregor’s crosshairs during a social media tirade. It was unexpected, to say the least.

The rant was directed at both O’Malley and boxing sensation, Ryan Garcia. Garcia had recently tested positive for a banned substance, ostarine, after his win over Devin Haney. This didn’t sit well with McGregor, who called Garcia out for alleged cheating.

But O’Malley? He had his own history with ostarine. Tested positive in 2018 and again in 2019. However, the United States Anti-Doping Agency later found his test results consistent with a tainted supplement. Didn’t matter to McGregor. He lumped O’Malley in with Garcia in his rant.

McGregor’s words? “I am actually disgusted,” he wrote in a tweet that’s since been deleted. “This ostarine it reminds me of Sean O’Malley — was on that as well. I don’t like this, I’ll bust yous both up. Do yous want to spar? I will set flights right now for you both to do a full-on spar each. Hotel, Black Forge Inn, the lot. Let’s spar O’Malley and Garcia, two little ostarine heads. I’ll ride you both like yous are ostriches.”

O’Malley didn’t stay silent. On a recent episode of his TimboSugarShow podcast, he responded to McGregor’s comments. “F*ck Conor,” he said. “I seen a lot of people being like, ‘Damn, I bet Suga’s sad. Suga always talks nothing but great about Conor and he’s his f*cking idol.’ He just went on a little tweet rant, f*cking booger sugar’d up talking shit. ‘I thought you was out for a spar.’

His feelings? “I was more sad than mad.”

O’Malley’s response was filled with laughter. So, it’s unclear if he’s genuinely upset with McGregor. But he did say that he’s rooting for Michael Chandler to knock McGregor out at UFC 303 on June 29. “Now I cannot wait to see Michael Chandler absolutely just sleep him,” O’Malley said. “I’m turning up. I’m changing up real quick, f*ck Conor. When your idols turn to rivals.”

If there’s any real beef between the two, O’Malley probably won’t hold a grudge. For now, he’s attributing McGregor’s outburst to a night of mischief — possibly involving recreational drugs.

“He obviously was on some good amount of fun stuff,” O’Malley said. “I think the tweet got deleted pretty quick, but is what it is. I cried for a little bit, I’m over it.”
