UFC bantamweight prospect Sean O’Malley enjoyed an emphatic return to the cage last night and the best type of after-party if he is a man of his word.

Speaking to TMZ Sports ahead of his UFC 248 fight against Jose Quinonez, O’Malley revealed he won’t be having any type of official after-party. However he did let us know about his plan to enjoy the victory by smoking some weed, chilling with friends and eating some pizza, he said.

“I’m gonna take a rip, I’m gonna hang out with my circle. I don’t have an after-party planned. I’m just gonna celebrate with some medicine and some good food and that’s about it. I always crave pizza. I think a lot of fighters do for whatever reason.”

These type of parties seems to be part of tradition for ‘Sugar’ who after his last fight at UFC 222 sparked up a huge joint and even introduced everyone his own strain of weed.

The 25-year-old has been out of action for two years after becoming embroiled in issues with anti-doping organisation USADA. Despite such a long period of time out, the undefeated star did not feel any pressure coming back and headlining the UFC 248 prelims, he said.

“It just feels like another fight. 2 years off is not that big of a deal. I don’t think anything’s really changed. I don’t think much has changed as far as the attention I’m getting, as far as how excited the fans are.”

The now 11-0 professional fighter fought without a care in the world. He finished the fight inside the first round after landing a sweet head kick, upper cut combination before following up with some ground and pound to get the stoppage.

Post-fight O’Malley was awarded the performance of the night bonus and $50,000 in extra cash. That will for sure keep the weed and pizza party going for quite some time!
