UFC Title Challenger Sean O’Malley Ready to Take a Bite Out of Greedy MMA Managers: ‘They’re Stealing Money From Fighters’ | MiddleEasy

Published:

Sean O’Malley is not a fan of MMA managers. Particularly, the especially greedy ones who try to take a bite out of every piece of pie that their fighters earn.During an interview with TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter, O’Malley shared his utter disdain for greedy MMA managers who actively seek a percentage of every dime their clients make. That includes attempting to take a piece of the often sought-after ,000 performance bonuses that are handed out following each UFC event. 

“I’m waiting to release it the right way,” O’Malley continued. “It will be – I think it’ll be a big deal, it’ll be massive and it will hurt someone’s business and rightfully so. So I’m gonna put it out there the right way – I gotta talk to my legal team and make sure we’re doing everything right. But yeah, MMA managers are so bad. It’s horrible, it’s embarrassing.”

Sean O’Malley on managers in MMA: “they’re stealing money from fighters”

“I’m gonna be fighting for fighter’s rights in this management stuff. These MMA managers are horrible, they do not deserve 15%, 10%, of their ‘negotiation’ with the UFC,” O’Malley added. “That’ll be a whole series of things to come, and I’m excited to be on the – it’s for fighters, 100%, and that still a ‘stay tuned’ moment”— Aaron Bronsteter (@aaronbronsteter) August 10, 2023To combat that, ‘Sugar’ has something up his sleeve, though the bantamweight title challenger was unable to provide any specific details just yet. “They’re stealing money from fighters. They’re taking percentages of these guys’ bonuses. That really p*sses me off, to be honest,” O’Malley said. “You go out there and win a bonus, you have a war, you get ,000 and these managers are trying to take a percentage of that? Not a lot of things drive me crazy, not a lot of things get under my skin and make me mad, but that does.”
