Sean Brady


Another standout effort at UFC 259
March 6, 2021
Brady defeated Jake Matthews via submission (arm-triangle) at 3:28 of Round 3 at UFC 259 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Brady has quickly and resoundingly announced his presence at 170 pounds. Facing an inconsistent but extremely talented opponent, Brady slogged through the first round before rebounding and running Matthews out of the building. UFC veteran and commentator Paul Felder has said Brady is the strongest guy he has ever trained with, and it's easy to see why. He forced Matthews to the mat at will in Round 2 before racking up 3:33 worth of control time. Brady won the total strike battle by a 99-19 count over the course of the final ten minutes. The 28-year-old Philadelphia native is a perfect 4-0 in the UFC and remains undefeated as a professional. Buckle up. The ceiling here appears to be very, very high.

Targeted for March fight
December 12, 2020
Brady is being targeted to face Jake Matthews in a welterweight matchup at UFC 259 on March 6, Mike Heck of reports.
Brady was scheduled to fight in December, but he was forced to withdraw for an undisclosed reason. He most recently defeated Christian Aguilera via submission (rear-naked choke) in late August, and he'll have to wait until March to return to the Octagon. Matthews has won his last three fights, most recently defeating Diego Sanchez via unanimous decision at UFC 253 in September. The fighters are even in reach, but Matthews has a slight edge in height.
No longer set to fight Muhammad
October 29, 2020
Brady will no longer fight Belal Muhammad on Dec. 19 at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Niall McGrath of The Bash MMA reports.
Brady reportedly was the one who pulled out of the fight, though it's unclear why. With it being unknown when the American could fight next, his attempt to improve to 14-0-0 will likely have to wait until at least early 2021.
Puts undefeated record on line Dec. 19
October 7, 2020
Brady (13-0-0) is slated to face Belal Muhammad (17-3-0) in a welterweight fight Dec. 19 at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Farah Hannoun of USA Today reports.
After winning his first 10 fights as a professional, Brady signed with the UFC last August and has proceeded to keep his unbeaten record intact. The 27-year-old scored unanimous-decision wins over Court McGee and Ismail Naurdiev before claiming his first UFC finish Aug. 29, when he submitted Christian Aguilera. Muhammad, meanwhile, has also been riding high of late, winning seven of his last eight fights.
Undefeated record remains
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.
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.
Fighting Aguilera in August
June 18, 2020
Brady will take on Christian Aguilera in a welterweight matchup at a UFC event August 29 in Las Vegas, reports.
Brady has won each of his last two fights since making his Octagon debut in February, while Aguilera's win streak sits at three, with just one of those bouts -- a first-round finish against Anthony Ivy -- coming under the UFC banner. Both of Brady's UFC fights have ended in unanimous decisions in his favor, and he posted superior striking and grappling numbers than his opponent in both. Brady stands an inch taller, while both men sport a 72-inch reach.
