Style | O’Malley’s Goal Not Just To Win, But To Earn KO

“When I first got to the MMA Lab, I was 19 years old and I had the same style I do right now,” he said. “Obviously it was not as technical and not as skilled, but I had the same style and I got a lot of s**t for it from Crouch. He actually hated my style and he told me the first couple times I was sparring, ‘Put your hands up or I’m gonna put someone in there that makes you put your hands up.’

“So at first, it wasn’t like we didn’t get along, but he didn’t like my style and he didn’t like any of the flashy stuff. So me becoming successful off of all that stuff definitely opened his eyes to it too.”

And all is well now, as evidenced by O’Malley’s showing on DWTNCS, which took over social media and even got rapper Snoop Dogg tweeting a photo with the caption, “Skinny boys. I’ll walk down any alley wit o malley.”

That would normally lead to a question of whether this 22-year-old can handle the fame and everything that follows along with being a UFC fighter. But instead, it should be, “Is the world ready for ‘The Sugar Show?’

“I think I’m gonna shock a lot of people,” O’Malley said. “I get into the cage and they look across from me and every guy I fight goes, ‘This kid’s not gonna knock me out.’ I look like a skinny little kid with curly hair. No one wants to get knocked out by me. I think I have to show a lot of people what I can do and the world’s gonna get ready for ‘The Sugar Show’ for sure.”
