Sean O’Malley showed no signs of ring rust in his return to the cage.
The undefeated rising star made quick work of Jose Quinonez at UFC 248, taking him out in the first round. It was O’Malley’s first fight since 2018 and came after battling a complicated case with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and Nevada State Athletic Commission that forced him to sit on the sidelines.
But O’Malley (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) has done a phenomenal job of remaining connecting with his fans during his absence, constantly providing content on his YouTube channel. Monday night, O’Malley posted an almost 30-minute video, highlighting his fight week, preparation, weight cut and media obligations, all the way to the night of the fight.
