Massive spot for O’Malley! Lotta questions answered tonight ladies and gentlemen

Wow talk about UFC privilege this is getting outta hand.

Wowwwwwww. I had Yan winning 30-27 but none the less, O’Malley showed he’s an elite bantamweight. I’m sold that he’ll get his hands on a belt someday. #UFC280

When they want someone to be at the top it seems to always go that way. Tough to see what the thought process on that decision was.

Shame the judges ruined such a good fight but the good news is we might see it again. I bet O’Malley is even better when it happens too, sheesh that was a banger. What did y’all think?
