Sean O’Malley has referred to Conor McGregor as the “GOAT” and former double champion.
In every sport, there is ongoing discussion regarding the greatest of all time (GOAT), and MMA is no exception. There is usually a recurring trend in most rankings, regardless of whether you admire Jon Jones, George St-Pierre, or Demetrious Johnson.
Conor McGregor, according to Sean O’Malley, is the Greatest of All Time because of everything he has contributed to both the sport and the entertainment industry.
Sean O’Malley Praises GOAT Conor McGregor
“It’s crazy to look back on him, like when he first got in UFC, when he first fought Dustin Poirier. It just reminds you. It shows you. That’s why that motherf**ker is so big,” O’Malley said via his YouTube Channel.
“Just his character at the beginning was so fun and entertaining,” O’Malley continued. “He’s the G.O.A.T. Maybe not G.O.A.T when it comes to skillset, it’s hard to say who’s the G.O.A.T. Like, who’s the best, it’s hard to say.
“When it comes to who’s the G.O.A.T., who really blew up the sport, who really took it to the next level, who is the most entertaining, who captivated the most people, Conor is the G.O.A.T. And not even anyone really that close.” (H/T MMAWeekly)
