In a recent YouTube video, Sean O'Malley shared his thoughts on Aljamain Sterling's unanimous decision win against Calvin Kattar.

"'Aljo' looked good – he made Calvin look bad," O'Malley said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. "I think it was three times, three different times, the crowd was booing. (Sterling was) just taking him down, holding him down and just holding him there, which, I mean, that's just his style.

You know, I saved the bantamweight division – that's what I was about to say."

"But who do you go next? If you would have went out there and finished Calvin in impressive fashion, then I'm like, 'Damn, you could get a big fight,' But after that – still, regardless whether people love him or hate him, Aljo is somewhat of a star and he gets a bigger fight after that.Calvin is on a three-fight losing streak.

He's a little bit older. You win a boring decision, who do you give Aljo now in the featherweight division? What about Diego Lopes? They'll probably give him Movsar (Evloev)."
