Tim Welch weighed in on a previous sparring session between UFC champions Sean O’Malley and Alexandre Pantoja.

Bantamweight champ O’Malley and flyweight champ Pantoja have beforehand bickered about a sparring session that allegedly happened in 2017, with every claiming that they acquired the higher of the opposite. O’Malley’s version is that he put Pantoja down in Spherical 1 of the session however finally drained and acquired choked out in Spherical 3.

As Pantoja (27-5 MMA, 11-3 UFC) gears up for his second title protection towards Steve Erceg (12-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) in Saturday’s UFC 301 headliner, the subject was introduced up once more.

“Not likely in combat camp in any respect,” Welch mentioned on his YouTube channel. “Going to sparring possibly to get a number of rounds and Henry (Cejudo’s) like, ‘Hey, you need to spar this man?’ So Sean says, ‘Yeah, I’ll spar him.’ They spar one spherical, Sean comes out off the rip, places him down. Places him down within the first minute. Now thoughts you that is – I don’t even bear in mind what yr that is.

“I don’t even suppose Sean was knowledgeable but. He might need been knowledgeable simply breaking in. …Sean comes on the market, bounces round, younger buck. Increase, hits him with a liver shot, places him down. Pantoja has to cease. He has to wave it off. He has to go over to Henry, kneel down, name it off. I imply, there’s a video – by no means launched video, however he places him down.”
