Casey O’Neill has opened up about her career ambitions once she retires from MMA competition.

Undefeated Casey O’Neill is on a 4-0 run with the UFC.

O’Neill (9-0-0) is one of the UFC’s brightest prospects as of right now. With a 4-0 promotional run, the ‘King’ has fast been moving up the ranks at flyweight.

Although she has no plan to retire anytime soon and very much intends on becoming champion, O’Neill is realistic and knows the day will one day come when she needs to step away from competition. The 25-year-old has already been thinking about her future and recently opened up about her plans during an appearance on The AllStar’s UFC Vegas 61 reaction show.

My goal right now is to be the UFC champion and retire as one of the best fighters in the world. But at the end of that, I still wanna be involved in the sport, because this is the only thing that I’ve loved in my whole life, fighting.” she said.

I’d like to get into doing commentary at the end of it, or sports journalism, something like that. So, I’m starting to dip my feet in the water whenever I can, you know, to get a little bit of practice and make sure it’s something I would be good at. I definitely have the face for camera, if I do say so myself, so, doing pretty well.” she continued.

O’Neill does not have a fight booked at this time. She was last in the cage this past February, picking up a split-decision victory over Roxanne Modafferi. The Scottish-born Australian was scheduled to fight Jessica Eye at the UFC 276 event this past July but was forced to pull out due to an ACL injury.
