‘Baby we did it’ – Sean O’Malley reveals DMs from Conor McGregor following UFC 292 title win

Sean O’Malley claims Conor McGregor slid into his DMs after UFC 292.

‘Suga’ scored a monumental upset as he dropped and stopped Aljamain Sterling inside two rounds to take his bantamweight title at Boston’s TD Garden on Saturday night.

The shot O’Malley faceplanted ‘Funk Master’ with was immediately compared to the punch McGregor used to stop Jose Aldo just 13 seconds into his first UFC title bout eight years ago.

However, ‘Notorious’ didn’t see it live and it wasn’t until the following days that he took to social media to get in touch with the new king at 135lbs.

“Conor [McGregor] messaged me on Instagram for the first time yesterday,” O’Malley told Pat McAfee.

“He said, ‘Baby we did it,’ and I said, ‘We sure f****** did!’ I said, ‘You main eventing in December, I’m co-main eventing?’ All he replied was, ‘Shot caller.’

“I don’t know what that means, but I feel like I kinda do so I’m hoping that’s a yes in f****** Irish.”

Following his title win, O’Malley immediately called for a fight with Marlon ‘Chito’ Vera – the only man to beat him – at UFC 296 in Las Vegas on December 16.

It’s the final UFC pay-per-view show of the year and the one McGregor is hoping to top alongside Michael Chandler after more than two years on the sidelines.

The former dual-weight champion recently claimed his return bout has been delayed until 2024 and vented about being ‘kept from my livelihood.’

As soon as fans accepted that they may not see MMA’s biggest star compete this year, he returned to Twitter and claimed, ‘December is back on the table!’

O’Malley will be glad to hear that as a self-confessed fan of McGregor.

“I’ve watched every single interview he’s ever done. I’ve watched all of his fights, multiple times. I love the way he carries himself,” he said in June 2021.

“Yeah, he’s definitely inspired me a ton. The way he carries himself. The way he handles pressure. The way he goes into these big fights. I’ve learned a lot from him.”
