Fresh off a dominant decision win at UFC 299, where he successfully defended his bantamweight crown against Marlon "Chito" Vera, "Suga" Sean O'Malley is living the sweet life as one of the UFC's most prolific fighters today both in and out of the octagon.

Don't let his zany hair and skinny frame fool you, Sean O'Malley is the real deal and a serious force to be reckoned with for any adversary. With his wild hair, flashy tattoos, and eccentric wardrobe, O'Malley has become known as much for his show-stopping style as he is for his impressive fighting skills.


Sean O'Malley has 'superstar' written all over him with his stellar skillset and in-your-face fashion sense.

It was 2017 when UFC fans were first introduced to the "Suga" show, as O'Malley was featured on Dana White's Contender's Series program. He was far from the colorful character fans know now, as a kid with a bushy afro in his twenties simply beginning his journey as an MMA fighter. The rocket was strapped on the back of O'Malley almost from the get-go and despite initial criticism for a padded record, "Suga" Sean quickly reached UFC title glory by defeating Aljamain Sterling at UFC 292.

Just as his fighting career was moving up, so were his quirky outfits and radiant hairstyles. O'Malley would ditch the plain, brown fro for colors resembling that of Fruity Pebbles, full-on rainbows, bold red, neon pink, and even the Ecuadorian flag's colors to taunt his opponent, "Chito" Vera.

You just knew Sean O'Malley lit up a room when you spotted his insane hair, but his outfits also took the same trend of becoming more and more flamboyant. O'Malley went from semi-formal dress shirts in his early days to rocking a traditional keffiyeh in the streets of Abu Dhabi for his fight at UFC 280.

Arguably his most high-profile look thus far, O'Malley rocking a Michael Jackson-inspired "Thriller" outfit at several UFC events but more specifically, UFC 288. Blasting into the cage post-fight to confront then-champion Aljamain Sterling, O'Malley hilariously had his red MJ-homage jacket stolen by bantamweight contender, Merab Dvalishvili. Nevertheless, it was an iconic look and moment that will forever associated with "Suga".

Obviously, for his most recent fight week festivities, O'Malley had to turn it up with a real dazzling sight of an outfit and dazzle he did with a stringy, bright green robe. He might've called Chito a "pinata" but it was O'Malley who had the pinata look going on. Did he eat as the kids say? Not sure about all that, but as "Suga" Sean continues to dominate his opponents and turn heads with his unique sense of style, he is proving to be a truly one-of-a-kind MMA talent.
