Sean O’Malley says Dominick Cruz, who will fight Pedro Munhos in UFC 269 qualifying, proves he is actually an uncrowned champion in the bantamweight division.
O’Malley knows that Cruz will receive the same payday on both the prelim and the main card, but fighting under “Suga” with one of the biggest UFC cards of the year will sacrifice his ego. increase.
O’Malley said, “The main card and prelims will be paid the same,” prior to the next bantamweight match against Howrian Paiba at UFC 269. Whether I open the main card or participate in qualifying, it doesn’t really matter as long as I make money. We are paid in the same way. But for your ego, it needs to hurt. Talked about as one of the greatest bantamweights of all time, you are in the preparatory stage. “
“Prelim Pedro (Munoz) vs. Dominique (Cruz), that makes sense there (in Prelim). I haven’t talked to anyone who is very excited about the fight. I think both are in the top 10. Laurian) Paiba isn’t ranked. He has the main card open. So I think it will be clear-I’m an unranked champion. “
O’Malley does kick off the UFC269 main card while Cruz is fighting Munoz in qualifying. The long-awaited PPV featuring a headlining lightweight title match between Charles Oliveira and a female bantamweight title match between Amanda Nunes and Julianna Peña will be on December 11 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
