Sean O’Malley saw himself getting a big walk-off knockout at UFC 250.

Not every fighter anticipates they’ll get a knockout triumph, not everybody can predict it ahead of time therefore couple of fighters have actually mastered the art of the walk-off knockout. Sean O’Malley states he saw himself winning in such a style as he did at UFC 250.

In a night filled with big surfaces, O’Malley scored one of the most unforgettable from UFC 250, when he opened the main card with a first-round knockout of former WEC champ and UFC interim title opposition Eddie Wineland.

Simply under 2 minutes into the bout, O’Malley landed a significant right-hand man that dropped Wineland out cold. As Wineland struck the mat, O’Malley merely left, understanding effectively he simply ended the battle and doing what he set out to do that night.

“I’ve been walking-off knocking people out since 16,” O’Malley stated in a post- battle interview. “I expected a nice little walk-off knockout.”

Sean O’Malley shined as soon as again in his young profession

After a two-year layoff thanks to injury and run- ins with USADA, O’Malley went back to the Octagon at UFC 248 in March with a nearly-as-quick first-round finish of Jose Alberto Quinonez.

However Wineland is certainly the most skilled opponent O’Malley has actually ever had, and with the UFC 250 win, while there are other bantamweights much more detailed to the top of the ranks, O’Malley feels he has actually put the UFC’s 135- pound division on notification.

“I think I really got to show that I’m as high-level as I keep saying I am and I’m as good as I say as I am. During the interviews, I say I’m really, really good; I’m high-level. I think people are kind of starting to see that.”
