O’Malley, speaking on “The MMA Hour,” has this to say about Dana White’s comments (h/t MMAJunkie):

“I don’t know, I don’t really watch it anyway. Once I plant Petr on the canvas, Dana will say, ‘OK, that was a good fight’. Anyway, me vs. Petr is an epic fight, a sweet, sweet kickboxing fight if I had to guess – two very high level strikers, two very high level MMA fighters, and it’s going to be a very interesting. I believe I have what it takes to turn off Petr’s lights.

Continuing, O’Malley opened up about his love for Dana White:

“No not at all. I think Dana really likes me. I fucking love Dana. So I think with him saying that, it wasn’t disrespect or anything. It’s just his opinion, and anyone can have their own opinion. I don’t care. I think this fight excites Dana. Dana has been doing this for a long time. He might get burned, (watch) fights every weekend What fight is going to make Dana say, ‘I gotta watch this fight, I gotta watch this, I gotta know what happened?’ There are very few fights (coming soon).
