UFC President Dana White feels that Sean O Malley is on the verge of becoming a massive global star. White noted the same during his interview with TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter and compared the rise of Sean O Malley to that of Conor McGregor.

“O’Malley is on the cusp of being a massive global superstar. There was talk earlier about Conor, he said, ‘I’d like to be as big as Conor’ and stuff like that. Well, if you want to compare it to Conor – this is like the Conor vs. Jose Aldo fight,” he said in the interview.

Dana White, however, stressed the importance of how Sean O Malley should get a win over Petr Yan to become a star.

“When you have that type of star power and you have that thing people are attracted too, then it’s about winning key fights like this. For O’Malley, he wins this fight on Saturday, his entire life changes on Sunday,” he added.

He was recently seen with a string of celebrities including Bollywood star Ranveer Singh and former NBA Star Shaquille O’Neal among others.

Petr Yan, on the other hand, is 16-3 in his career and has only lost to Aljamain Sterling in his UFC run. Yan will be looking to get back into the title picture with a win over O Malley.
