Undefeated record remains
WelterweightUFC
August 29, 2020
Brady defeated Christian Aguilera via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:47 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was an extremely impressive all-around effort from Brady. He excelled no matter where this fight took place. He landed plenty of power shots on the feet, exploded for easy takedowns, and of course, finished the bout with a vicious rear-naked choke. Brady has just three UFC fights under his belt, but the early returns are very positive. Brady's cardio appears strong, and he fights physically. He also won't be turning 28 years of age until late-November. We will have to see how Brady looks when the competition level rises, but he clearly deserves a better opponent his next time out.

Decisions Court McGee in debut
WelterweightUFC
October 18, 2019
Brady defeated Court McGee via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Friday in Boston.
ANALYSIS
Try as hard as he may, Brady was unable to get the durable McGee out of there in his UFC debut. It wasn't for a lack of effort. He dropped Court with a big left hook in Round 1 before popping him with another big left at the conclusion of the second frame. Brady was a bit less effective in Round 3, but had already done enough to secure the victory. Brady, who entered his UFC debut as a healthy (-170) favorite, remains undefeated (11-0) as a professional.
