Sean O'Malley wants Fair Compensation, Main Event Matchups

by Aleksandar Urdarevik on June 08, 2020

Sean O'Malley delivered a devastating one punch knockout to defeat Eddie Wineland in round one of UFC 250's opening match.



O'Malley (12-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) remains undefeated, and in his post-fight interview, said that he's ready for two things: main event matchups and fair compensation.

O'Malley asserts that his paygrade is far below the other fighters. He gets that he doesn't have the same resume yet, but he'd like to have fair compensation.

"Those guys have had a lot of fights and big wins. I'm not asking for a lot. What I was asking for is still less than everyone made tonight. I just want it to be fair. I think the whole week was about the 'Suga Show,'" said O'Malley.

"I was supposed to renegotiate after I knocked out Jose, and it didn't happen. It sucks that I even have to bring that stuff up and it has to be about money. It shouldn't be like that, it should be fair. I think that's something we can all agree on. I just want to get paid what I feel I'm worth."



O'Malley also walked through his one-round bout against Wineland.

“I was really, really healthy for this fight. I had no injuries. Last fight, I felt I was 95 percent. I had a couple small injuries, but I felt 100 percent in there tonight.”

“It was a matter of minutes from the beginning of the fight before I cracked him with something. I was longer than him and when you’re as fast and accurate as I am, I’m going to land first and I’m going to land early, and I landed on the button.”

As far as what's next for O'Malley, he's ready for a main event.

“It’s kind of up to the UFC. A main event almost sounds right. It sounds like something that should probably get done. We’ll see. Hopefully I’ll sit down with (matchmaker) Sean Shelby and we’ll figure out what’s next, but hopefully a main event sounds nice.”
