Ryan Garcia Calls Out 'Rainbow Head' Sean O’Malley - 'Brother I'll Kill You'

Ryan Garcia has called out Sean O’Malley, the UFC Bantamweight Champion.

Garcia is currently on course to face Devin Haney on April 20 in an attempt to win The Dream’s WBC Junior Welterweight Title. But Garcia is already looking ahead by turning his attention to O’Malley. The UFC fighter first expressed his intention to crossover into boxing after stopping Aljamain Sterling at UFC 292. The victory ended Sterling’s win streak of nine fights as O’Malley called out Gervonta Davis.

“We’re both undefeated boxers. It just make sense. That’s what you do when you’re both undefeated boxers, you go out there and you see who’s the best. Before that I was calling out Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis before they fought. Gervonta beat Ryan and it’s just a fight I would like in the future,” O’Malley stated 

Garcia responded to that call out by urging O’Malley to avoid taking the bout, but now Ryan has set his sights on fighting him. 

Garcia vs O’Malley

“I’d fight Sean O’Malley in the UFC that’s it but Dana you’d have to cut me that real check,” Garcia said.

“Brother I KILL YOU within minutes,” O’Malley replied

“Alright rainbow head, There is only one way to find out… Dana let’s do this,” Garcia stated 

Nevertheless, there are still some obstacles to overcome before a fight can be considered. If Garcia were to lose to Haney, taking a UFC fight would not be in his best interests. That should be his main focus since Garcia has yet to win a world title. O’Malley also aims to overturn his only defeat against Marlon Vera at UFC 299. If he were to come up short again, a rematch may occur, given it is a title fight.

White On Crowd Trouble

Elsewhere, Brandon Royval’s split decision win over Brandon Moreno was clouded by crowd trouble at UFC Mexico City. Royval had to wait four years to get his revenge after losing to Moreno via a fourth-round TKO. But his win was marred by crowd trouble.

The UFC recently saw this after Sean Strickland attacked Dricus Du Plessis at UFC 296. The pair had to be separated by security. The crowd was out of control again in Mexico, as UFC lightweight Manuel Torres stopped his post-fight comments to diffuse the bad crowd. In response, Dana White had this to say. 

“I mean, that never happens. Literally never happens. It happened here in Mexico City. The crazy thing about that fight, when that fight broke out, it felt like it kept going forever. So I ran over there and I was watching it, nobody stopped it. I was waiting for security to come in, and they just let them go until it was over. That was one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen. I don’t think it’s a bad look for the UFC. It happened and that was the end of that,” White stated 

The event concluded without any serious injuries, but the recent events need to stop for the sake of crowd safety. Find all the latest boxing news and MMA breaking updates on boxingnews.com.
