Move over Bryce Mitchell, you're not the only one with custom shorts anymore.

According to the new bantamweight champion, he'll be wearing bright pink shorts on fight night, the first of their kind. That makes O'Malley and Mitchell the only two UFC fighters to have custom fight shorts made. Mitchell's are camo style and began during the Reebok kit era.

Typically UFC champions wear black and gold shorts, but O'Malley is anything but typical.

The shorts are also now for sale at the UFC shop and will be available on the video game as well.

O'Malley fights in the main event at UFC 299 on Saturday when he looks to defend his title for the first time in a rematch with Marlon "Chito" Vera. He lost their first encounter but has vowed to not let that happen again.
