Sean O’Malley believes Aljamain Sterling is nervous ahead of the title fight

The next bantamweight title fight is less than a few days away. On 19th August, Aljamain Sterling will be defending his belt against the new title challenger Sean O’Malley. Both fighters have strong animosity for each other, and O’Malley strongly believes that Sterling is nervous.

The press conference will take place next week; in terms of trash-talking, it promises to be an explosive one. Sean O’Malley is one victory away from snatching everything away from Aljmain Sterling, and it will be very interesting to see if he has what it takes to get the job done.

Sean O’Malley’s thoughts on Aljmain Sterling

Recently on The MMA Hour, Sean O’Malley shared his thoughts on Aljamain's sterling nervous look and explained how weight cutting is going to be a tough squeeze for him.

“He has what I want, he has the belt,” O’Malley said, as quoted by “It’s as simple as that. I just let him know, I said, ‘Hey champ, you look a little nervous,’ when I saw him on the TV.

I was just being honest. He looked a little — this moment might get to him a little bit. What was that, 14, 13 days out from weigh-ins? I’m sure he still has a lot of weight to cut, he’s dealing with these injuries.

So I just thought he looked a little nervous, I thought I’d let him know, and I did”. “I’ve heard him say he has trouble sleeping sometimes, obviously, he has trouble not trouble making weight, I guess you could say trouble making weight.

O’Malley further said: It’s not fun. I mean, I don’t cut as much weight as him and I don’t ******* like cutting weight, it sucks. So for me, having fat-ass dinners a couple of weeks out, I guarantee he’s not having those, and if he is, it’s just going to make his weight cut that much worse”.
