Sean O’Malley sure knows how to bait Cody Garbrandt.

O’Malley and Garbrandt appear to have verbally agreed to a matchup following a Twitter exchange where ‘Suga’ claimed ‘No Love’ would get knocked out by YouTube star Jake Paul.

“@jakepaul prob knock you out,” O’Malley tweeted to Garbrandt.

“You are the softest dude on the roster, wait you’re still are on the roster right?! Drink some more milk kid maybe one day you can fuck with the big dawgs,” Garbrandt fired back.

“Fight me,” O’Malley posted.

“I’ll have a stretcher waiting for you,” Garbrandt responded.

While the fight is hardly a done deal, both fighters at least seem mutually interested in the matchup. O’Malley is looking to rebound from his upset TKO loss to Marlon ‘Chito’ Vera at UFC 252 while Garbrandt is working his way back to title contention following his vicious knockout of Raphael Assuncao at UFC 250, which saw the former bantamweight champ snap a three-fight losing skid.

Garbrandt is #4 in the UFC bantamweight rankings while O’Malley has yet to the crack the top fifteen.
