Who is the UFC Fighter With Green Hair?
The UFC fighter with neon green hair is Kris Moutinho, who made his short-notice UFC debut against ultra popular fighter, Sean O'Malley. Moutinho was bored during the COVID-19 pandemic and dyed his hair several times, until he finally decided to stick with neon green.
Moutinho vs O'Malley
After O'Malley's original opponent pulled out of their fight due to injury, Moutinho got the call to not only be the replacement, but make his UFC debut.
Moutinho would show extreme toughness and durability during his fight, but unfortunately was outclassed.
Moutinho was outlanded by 160 significant strikes, which in the UFC bantamweight division, was the highest difference in history.
O'Malley was able to land strikes almost at will against Moutinho for 3 rounds, until the referee finally stopped it with 27 seconds left.
Regardless, Moutinho's toughness made him an immediate fan-favorite, and left everyone wondering how he was able to endure that punishment, and keep on coming forward.

Unfortunately, Moutinho would be released after he lost via standing TKO in his most recent UFC bout, and pulled out due to injury the fight prior.
Moutinho's UFC stint would be short, but like any other fighter, there's a chance that he's able to return if he makes improvement and piles up wins.
