Sean O’Malley has revealed Conor McGregor messaged him after his win over Aljamain Sterling.
‘Suga’ entered the main event of UFC 292 as a sizeable underdog, with Sterling riding a nine-fight undefeated streak and possessing some of the most dominant grappling skills the division has ever seen.
But O’Malley caused a major upset as he dropped Sterling inside two rounds to claim his bantamweight title at TD Garden on Saturday night.
McGregor didn’t see it live but O’Malley has revealed the Irishman reached out to him for the first and that he wants them to share a UFC card in December, Mcgregor’s reported return date to the Octagon.
‘Conor [McGregor] messaged me on Instagram for the first time yesterday,’ O’Malley told Pat McAfee.

‘He said, ‘Baby we did it,’ and I said, ‘We sure f****** did!’ I said, ‘You main eventing in December, I’m co-main eventing?’ All he replied was, ‘Shot caller.’
‘I don’t know what that means, but I feel like I kinda do so I’m hoping that’s a yes in f****** Irish.’
A number of people compared O’Malley’s victory to Conor McGregor’s KO of Jose Aldo in 2015.
Much like Saturday’s main event, the UFC 194 main event saw a highly-touted challenger face off against a long-reigning champion with UFC gold on the line.
The only significant differences between O’Malley and McGregor’s stoppage wins were the round the KO occured in and the hand it was delivered by.
In McGregor’s case, he defeated Jose Aldo just thirteen seconds into the first round, and he intercepted the Brazilian charging forward with a pull counter from his patented left hand.
