Sean O’Malley believes Charles Oliveira is a suitable candidate to welcome Conor McGregor back to the UFC. ‘Suga’ understands that the possibility that this fight will materialize is slim. However, O’Malley suggested that Dustin Poirier dethrone Oliveira, McGregor could likely challenge the Brazilian fighter.
Conor McGregor is currently recovering from the terrible broken leg he suffered at UFC 264. McGregor took on Poirier in the trilogy fight and broke his ankle in the final seconds of the first round, earning “The Diamond” a TKO win.
In his interview with Helen Yee Sports, O’Malley was asked who the Irishman should fight when he returns to the UFC. ‘Suga’ replied with the words:
“155 is a good weight class (for Conor McGregor). I mean Chandler, Gaethje, all these guys are such tough fights, I think one of the better fights for him would have been Oliveira, but he won’t get that fight. Maybe Dustin beats Oliveira and Oliveira vs. Conor (could happen). I have no idea. I guarantee who he’ll fight I’ll look forward to it, “said O’Malley.

Conor McGregor is currently recovering from his injury. He is only allowed to return to the octagon in January 2022.
The former UFC two-division champion recently gave an update on his injury, the first time he was seen walking since his surgery a day after UFC 264.
Sean O’Malley is a huge Conor McGregor fan
It’s no secret that Sean O’Malley thinks a lot of Conor McGregor. He has repeatedly stated that his entertaining fighting style makes him excited when he sees the Irish fight.
As a fan of McGregor, O’Malley is disappointed that he does not have a picture with “The Notorious” even though he is competing at UFC 264 on the same map as him.
Telling the story of an incident where he missed the chance to click a picture with McGregor, O’Malley said:
“Me and Conor still don’t have a picture. I saw him at the club and we’re probably from me to the door, ”O’Malley said, pointing to the door. ‘Suga’ continued: “What is that 6 meters? We say 20 feet. And he had a lot of security around him and a lot of people around him. So I couldn’t get up there. But I was standing there. “
