Joe Rogan and Daniel Cormier have found themselves in plenty of hot water on the subject of their commentary during recent UFC events. Sean O’Malley is the latest to talk about what he dislikes about the pair.
Sean O’Malley recently spoke to Daniel Cormier on his show DC&RC where the UFC bantamweight was able to confront him about his commentary. A lot of it has to with him and Joe Rogan talking about leg kicks.
“I have watched my fights back over and over again and every time I hear you and Joe say something, they say, ‘I don’t know why they don’t kick his legs like Chito Vera did,” the UFC bantamweight said (via Sportskeeda). “It was very effective for him’. Oh god, it drives me crazy ‘DC’. That drives me crazy. Because the leg kick he landed wasn’t a good quality leg kick. My leg kicks I was landing on him were making him spin around in circles. His big toe hit the nerve when I was pulling out from a kick.”
Sean O’Malley will have a chance to hear the commentary from Joe Rogan and Daniel Cormier again when he takes on Pedro Munhoz at UFC 276. The rising bantamweight prospect has big plans when he takes on the Brazilian and has a bright future.
“After this fight, I have to finish Pedro. Say I go out there and finish Pedro then I get a Top 5 guy, whoever it is. It depends on if ‘Chito’ gets a fight booked. I know that’s a fight that I want.”
