Aljamain Sterling has pledged to fight Sean O’Malley

Reigning UFC flyweight champion Aljamain Sterling has made no secret of the fact that he has no intention of competing with Sean O’Malley in the standup, but his opponent shouldn’t expect to come out of the title fight unscathed.

“I want to smash that guy’s face in,” Sterling said while speaking to reporters at an open workout in New York. “I want to crush that ugly earth rat. As soon as I move him, that naked earth rat will be destroyed.”

“I want him to pay for everything he said, for all the treshtock, for all the privileges from Dan White. I didn’t have any of that, and I’m looking forward to getting even with him for all of it.”

As a reminder, the featherweight title fight between Aljamain Sterling and Sean O’Malley will be the main event of UFC 292, which takes place on August 19 in Boston.
