Who is Sean O’Malley’s girlfriend? Here’s what you need to know about Danya Gonzalez.
O’Malley recently declined a fight with Frankie Edgar which is one of the reasons that some media spotlight is on him right now.
Many of his fans want to know more about his life outside of the UFC stage. Let’s meet his partner and find out more about their relationship.
Who is Danya Gonzalez?
Danya is a independent professional hairdresser based in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Arizona.
She is the one behind many of Sean’s hairstyles which he often shows off on his social media accounts.
In July this year, Danya coloured his hair into rainbow tones. She also did a similar style in March when Sean posted a snap of his hairstyle and wrote: “High on life. So lucky to be able to perform on the biggest stage in the world.”
Danya has competed in several jiu-jitsu tournaments in the past and has interests in the mixed martial arts like Sean.

Danya and Sean O’Malley
Danya and Sean have been together for a long time and the UFC star first mentioned about their relationship earlier this year.
They met on the UFC stage when Sean took the plunge and asked for her Instagram handle.
Speaking on Brendan Schaub’s Food Truck Diaries Podcast, Sean said:
“I met her at the UFC gym. Danya and her sister are walking out, and he’s like, ‘Come on, go ask her for her Instagram’. I get both of their Instagrams and the rest is history.”
He also added: “We’ve been together for a long time and it was before I was ‘Sugar’. It had nothing to – do with that [fame]. It had nothing to do with that. I’m gonna live my life.”
The couple share one daughter, named Elena.
