Sean O’Malley to Undergo Surgery on Injured Foot Sustained at UFC 222
By: Nathan Zur Mar 22, 2018
Undefeated prospect Sean
O'Malley, who was first noticed on Dana White's Tuesday Night
Contender Series, is scheduled for surgery to repair the injury he
suffered to his foot in his last fight against Andre
Soukhamthath earlier this month at UFC
222. O’Malley won the fight by unanimous decision after
dominating his opponent in the opening two rounds. He capped off
the performance by conducting his post-fight interview with Joe
Rogan while lying on his back.
According to MMA Fighting, O’Malley is set to have surgery on his
right foot this Friday.
O’Malley (10-0 MMA & 2-0 UFC) recently told SevereMMA.com that the
Ultimate Fighting Championship had asked if the 23 year old
would consider fighting on the upcoming “The Ultimate Fighter”
Finale card on July 6. This was before O’Malley required surgery,
although no potential opponent was proposed at the time.
The prospect is expected to return to the Octagon in the fall.
