Sean O’Malley Fires Back at Fans Who Claim He Took a Banned Substance on Purpose

By Nathan Zur Nov 16, 2018

Sean O’Malley is one of the brightest young stars on the Ultimate Fighting Championship roster after being awarded a contract from his performances on Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series.

“Suga” was scheduled to face Jose Quinonez at UFC 229 last month which was headlined by Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomdeov and would have been the biggest fight of his career so far. However, he was pulled from the card after testing positive for ostarine, a substance banned by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

O’Malley was handed a six-month suspension and has been targeted on Twitter, with some fans claiming he purposely took the banned substance despite him claiming he believed it came from caffeine pills he took.

The 24-year-old bantamweight has openly stated that he’s been working closely with USADA to clear his name and turned to Twitter to defend himself against those accusations.

“.08 nanograms and they pulled me off the biggest card, suspended me and fined me. One Nanogram is exactly 0.000000000001 kilograms. For everyone who thinks I am stupid enough to take a banned substance before the biggest fight of my career [middle finger emoji]. Thanks to the fans that support me.”
