Fellow UFC bantamweight stars Cody Garbrandt and Sean O'Malley have been involved in multiple Twitter spats over the weekend. O’Malley sure knows how to bait Garbrandt. O’Malley and Garbrandt appear to have verbally agreed to a matchup following a Twitter exchange where "Sugar" claimed "No Love" would get knocked out by YouTube star Jake Paul.

Garbrandt then responded to O'Malley.

O'Malley then responded to Garbrandt by saying he wants to fight him.

Garbrandt then fired back by poking fun at O'Malley's last loss to Marlon Vera where O'Malley left the Octagon on a stretcher.

While the fight is hardly a done deal, both parties seem very interested in a future matchup which would definitely have a lot of eyes on it.
