In the past, there have been some intriguing stories involving fighters and their sparring partners, but perhaps nothing as disturbing as an incident between Sean O’Malley and his sparring partner.

Sean O’Malley continues to grow his brand inside and outside the Octagon, becoming somewhat of a fan favourite since joining the UFC back in 2017. The brash-talking, the confidence in his own ability, and his unique style have captured the fans and convinced them to tune in to the “Suga” show.

As every fighter works their way to the top of the sport, they have hundreds of unique gym stories in their locker, and some of them shouldn’t be publicized. Perhaps Sean O’Malley’s recent story he shared with The Full Send podcast listeners.

Sean O’Malley Talks Sparring Incident

“He didn’t believe that I was a fighter. Tim [Welch] worked at this UFC gym, so they had a ring, and we brought him over there, not in like a mean way, he wanted to fight me, not fight, he wanted to spar. I f***ing kicked him in the body and he s*** all over the mat. Literally s*** all over the mat. But we didn’t know, we kept going, kept fighting; I stepped in it, stepped in his s***. It was horrible.

“I step in it, we finish the round, and then Tim was like, ‘There’s s***,’ and we thought it was by dog, ’cause we recorded the video. I wish we still had it, dude. It was probably seven or eight years ago… In the video you can see, we thought it was my dog, my little dog was there, so I ended up cleaning it up because I thought it was my dog. We watched the video back; you can see the s*** come out of his shorts… That was the only time anyone ever kind of wanted to fight me and didn’t believe that I was a fighter.”

What do you think of this hidden story by Sean O’Malley? One to keep inside the gym walls?
