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.
Surgery on Thursday on my right hip. This will put me off the Mats for about 4 months. Still waiting on the USADA situation to get sorted out . This year has been the best year,and toughest year of my life .Fuckin love you guys tho ❤️I’ll be streaming A LOT

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.
