It has been a very bad year for top bantamweight contender Sean O’Malley.  The 23-year-old announced earlier this month that he failed a drug test, which resulted in him pulling out of his fight against Jose Quinonez (7-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) at the historic UFC 229 card which sold the highest number of PPV in the history of UFC.

After failing a drug test, he now is now having a surgery to repair a lingering hip issue. He announced the news Monday on social media (via Twitter):

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.F uckin love you guys tho <3 I’ll be streaming A LOT

Earlier this year he said he took a tainted supplement and has sent samples to the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and he’s already working with the necessary people to clear his name of any wrongdoing as he claims it to be.

He suffered a foot injury in his unanimous decision win over Andre Soukhamthath at UFC 222 in April and hasn’t been able to compete since. “Sugar” won all three of his UFC bouts thus far.
