Sean O'Malley supported the accusations against Islam Makhachev

The number one UFC bantamweight, Sean O’Malley, believes Bobby Green’s suspicions are justified, who in a recent interview said that his former rival, Islam Makhachev, has been using steroids since childhood.

“Have you seen Bobby Green talk about why Islam Makhachev is so damn strong?” The American said in the next episode of his podcast. “Bobby Green watched an old interview when Islam was having problems with USADA, and then Islam said that when he was growing up, he was constantly given some kind of supplements. In Russia, all athletes are stuffed with additives. They don’t even wonder what the **** they’re taking. That’s how they’re set up.”

In 2016, Islam Makhachev was suspended from participation in the UFC on FOX 19 tournament and disqualified by the US Anti-Doping Agency due to the detection of meldonium in his body, however, two months later, the Russian was fully acquitted because he took the drug after heart surgery, even before , as the World Anti-Doping Agency WADA included it in the list of prohibited substances.

Recall that at the moment, Islam Makhachev, who owns the UFC lightweight title, is preparing for a super fight against Australian Alexander Volkanovski, which will take place on February 12 at UFC 284 in Perth.
