Sean O'Malley opts to have hip surgery

With no answer yet from USADA, Sean O’Malley opts to have hip surgery

UFC star Sean O’Malley has opted to undergo the knife and have hip surgery performed later this week.  The 23-year old undefeated (10-0) fighter is currently serving a temporary suspension from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency due to a failed test.

As a result of the pending investigation and possible lengthier suspension, “Sugar” has decided to fix a nagging injury.

O’Malley was supposed to fight Jose Quinonez at UFC 229 earlier this month but was pulled just days before the contest.

He is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Andre Soukhamthath earlier this year.
