Why isn’t Garbrandt fighting O Malley as a nice Co-Main event on a PPV?

    Or even on the Undercard this Saturday.

    I saw he’s fighting on a fight night card shortly.

    Why? It makes no sense.

    if he loses it will ruin a potential O malley fight.

    O’Malley is still an unranked fighter. He hasn’t earned the right to get big name opponents yet

    The UFC wants to give O'Malley as optimal of a path as possible

    Well, O'Malley took a loss to Vera so the luster of the matchup took a hit.

    It could happen down the line if Sean gets matched up with someone with a pulse again and wins.

    Garbrandt is (still) top ranked and a former champion. O’Malley hasn’t beaten anyone. The fight doesn’t make sense.

    Because Cody would batter him like a fish supper and Dana needs his cash cows, no matter how awful they are.

    Once Cody suffers some further ko losses and is clearly no longer the same fighter, he'll be an ideal opponent for OMalley

    Cody vs Font is a Title eliminator. Winner should fight Yan for the Interim Title.

    This thread delivers. I enjoy Sugah’s fights and his antics but Cody would absolutely murder him with impunity.

    Because the UFC is trying everything to find him favourable matchups
