Sean O’Malley’s performance at UFC 276 was somewhat of a let down after his bout with Pedro Munhoz was called off due to an unintentional eye poke. According to O’Malley’s most recent podcast, the afterparties are where the entertainment kicked in.
O’Malley and his instructor Tim Welsh spoke about a time when they ran into Nate Diaz and his entourage, only to have a random member of Diaz’s crew attempt to cause problems. They spoke about it on a new episode of TimboSugarShow.
“Remember that little Nate’s friend at the club? I don’t even know who he is but he’s one of Nate’s crew. But I saw Gilbert Melendez, Gilbert was faded and like ‘Nah, we’re good bro,’ then Jake Shields comes up to me and is like ‘We’re good, bro.’”
“Their whole crew was being so cool. Nate didn’t really want anything to do with me because I think that was his boy and Nate’s Nate.”
Other than O’Malley, Diaz’s companion also attempted to start problems with others. It seems that the unidentified entourage member also attempted to initiate contact with flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo.
“One of Nate’s buddies comes up and says he was trying to do this to Figueiredo, he’s just trying to create something, which I get. But that was weird, when I’m drunk I’m never in a ‘F*** you’ kind of mood, and it put me in there right quick. I had to snap out of it …”
“I liked seeing Gilbert and Jake Shields there and they were givin’ me skin and we’re mutually ‘Wassup motherf***er, we’re boys.’ Wish we could have had shots with them, but that little f***ing weasel….”
The outcome of his battle with Pedro Munhoz only mad Sean O’Malley more agitated. In addition to thinking Munhoz embellished the eye poke that broke off the bout, O’Malley also thinks that Munhoz faked taking a groin strike.
In a recent Bromalley episode, Sean said:
“Right after I punched him in the eye, I threw a teep kick, landed on the belt line. I’ve kicked people in the nuts before, I feel the cup. I did not hit him in the nuts.”
“That was a fake foul. I hit him in the gut. Instantly, he didn’t hold his nuts, he held his eye. He was taking that low body shot, take time for his eye that I punched.”
