Sean O'Malley graced the show at the fight between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal

UFC bantamweight champion Sean O’Malley is my pick for the best moment of the fight card and he wasn’t even fighting.

Sean O’Malley was the highlight of the Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal boxing card and he wasn’t even fighting. O’Malley was making his commentary debut for the event and frankly, he was incredible. His insight was invaluable, his knowledge superb and his voice and personality flowed nicely throughout the event. Just look at his breakdown of the fight itself. It’s magical.

Many people had wondered if O’Malley would carry his outlandish personality and sometimes obnoxious tradh talking over into the commentary booth but he seemed to really behave himself and acted super professionally. I’d love to see him on a UFC broadcast. Let’s put him and Snoop Dogg on Dana White’s Contender Series commentary and go full circle from when Snoop and Uriah Faber did commentary for O’Malley’s DWCS debut.

In fact, he was so good that MMA fans didn’t even realize it was him … in a good way. Here’s how MMA Twitter reacted to O’Malley on commentary.
