Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Not way back, Sean O’Malley revealed that regardless of promoting a high-volume of O’Malley gear by means of Reebok, “Suga Present” himself solely walked away with a really small share of that quantity. He additionally advised of plans to launch his personal merchandise, talking cryptically of some massive cash strikes to return.

O’Malley was not kidding round. The Bantamweight prospect launched a sequence of restricted version jerseys, reportedly promoting about 100 of them virtually immediately at $200 a bit! I don’t understand how a lot a presumably high-quality customized basketball jersey prices to provide, however O’Malley pulled in tough $20,000 in income. It definitely appears possible that he profited fairly a bit greater than that pitiful Reebok test.

As well as, O’Malley auctioned off a pair of jerseys individually. Jersey #69 and #420 had been signed and listed on eBay, the place O’Malley examined his market worth.

The jerseys bought for about $2,000 every.

All in all, the customized jerseys look like a profitable experiment, demonstrating the intense demand for O’Malley merchandise — and “Suga” himself. When the story about Reebok first broke, I noticed fairly a number of followers on Twitter and readers right here on MMAmania questioning if O’Malley actually bought that a lot … Take into account this compelling proof that O’Malley is a particular sizzling commodity with main star potential.

I really like Combined Martial Arts. Generally it doesn’t love me again although, and that’s alright. Regardless, I’ll at all times do every little thing in my energy to guard it, and people dedicating themselves to it. Generally it’s possible you’ll disagree with me, and that’s alright as nicely. I’m at all times going to talk my thoughts, and it’ll at all times be backed by what I really feel in my coronary heart. If you happen to perceive what it takes to get in there, then you definately perceive my ardour and anger after I see a fighter left unprotected. It isn’t the primary time it’s occurred, and twice in an evening is evident negligence, for my part. The referees job is extra essential than every other particular person in that constructing. It’s on their shoulders to guard fighters from getting severely harm when they’re unable to guard themselves. Chances are you’ll simply see UFC fighters in there, however I see associates, teammates, sons, daughters, moms and dads, competing within the sport that they love. After I make a mistake, I look silly on reside TV. When a referee makes a mistake, individuals are left weak and will be severely broken. That may be life-changing, and all of us have somebody to go dwelling to, that loves us and needs us again in a single piece. Thanks for all the type phrases and messages I’ve obtained. I’m really grateful. I’ll see you throughout… ♥️ —————— ‍☠️Outlaw ‍☠️ —————— – @jeffbottari
