Pic! Sean O’Malley shows off braided marijuana leaf haircut ahead of UFC 260

Bantamweight contender Sean O’Malley is rolling out a special new haircut for his clash with Thomas Almeida later tonight (Sat., Mar. 27, 2021) at UFC 260 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.

O’Malley, who is coming off a disappointing TKO loss to Marlon Vera back in Aug. 2020, is hoping to right the ship tonight at UFC 260 and regain any momentum he may have lost at 135 pounds. While “Sugar” has likely made the necessary adjustments in training to give Almeida a run for his money the rising star is also showcasing a new haircut for his Octagon return.

Being the weed advocate that he is it’s only fitting that O’Malley sports a marijuana leaf in his hair for UFC 260’s festivities. That’s exactly what O’Malley has done and it looks pretty damn sick. Check it out below via Instagram.

High on life. So lucky to be able to perform on the biggest stage in the world. @ufc

O’Malley, 26, caught some flack for his handling of his recent loss to Vera so the young fighter will have to prove himself again tonight in Las Vegas. Almeida is a very dangerous striker and a contender capable of ending a fight at any moment, but he should give O’Malley the openings he needs to shine in his return to action. will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 260 fight card RIGHT HERE, starting with the early ESPN/ESPN+ “Prelims” matches, which are scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. ET, then the remaining undercard balance on ESPN/ESPN+ at 8 p.m. ET, before the PPV main card start time at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+ PPV.
