Say hello to the mixed martial artist everyone loves to talk about. With an outsized personality like Sean O’Malley’s, a fighter better have the Octagon skills to back up the hype. And that’s exactly what “Sugar” has proven ever since making his UFC debut in 2017. A hard worker blessed with supreme fighting IQ and killer instincts, O’Malley has built a near flawless record in the bantamweight division. Before that, the Montana native created buzz on the Legacy Fighting Alliance circuit, then barged into the spotlight as a knockout artist on Dana White’s Contender Series. From there, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt with a strong base in kickboxing has kept the hits – and stoppages – coming. Several UFC bonuses, including Fight of the Night and Performance of the Night, alongside spectacular wins against certified MMA icons have made it clear that the hype just might be real. Watch closely as O’Malley makes his mark on UFC history in his own image. One thing’s for sure: Whatever “Sugar” does in his next fight, fans will be talking about it. And that’s the best any fighter could wish for!
