Sterling thinks Welch crossed the road

Sterling blasts O’Malley

Sterling says fast turnaround impacted efficiency vs. O’Malley

Aljamain Sterling ripped Sean O’Malley in protection of his teammate Merab Dvalishvili.

O’Malley (18-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) dethroned Sterling by knockout to seize the bantamweight title at UFC 292. He has since defended his belt in a shutout of Marlon Vera at UFC 299, and is now zeroing in on Sterling’s good buddy Dvalishvili.

Dvalishvili (17-4 MMA, 10-2 UFC) went after O’Malley and his head coach Tim Welch, which sparked a back-and-forth. Maybe Dvalishvili’s anger stems from a video which just lately resurfaced of Welch urging Sterling to remain busy simply seconds earlier than he walked into O’Malley’s counter proper which put him down.

Sterling intervened and an previous rivalry was rekindled. Scroll beneath to see their exchanges on “X.”
