Fight against Lee cancelled
WelterweightUFC
August 7, 2021
Brady's matchup with Kevin Lee at UFC on ESPN 30 has been cancelled because he is dealing with an undisclosed injury, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
It is unclear what issue Brady is dealing with, but it is severe enough to call off the bout. This is now the second time that a fight between him and Lee has been cancelled, as they were originally scheduled to fight last month at UFC 264 before the latter suffered a rib injury. It remains to be seen if they two will get another fight scheduled or if the 28-year-old will move on to someone else. He remains undefeated in his professional MMA career.

WelterweightUFC
June 24, 2021
Brady will no longer be taking on Kevin Lee at UFC 264 after Lee had to withdraw due to injury, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS

Facing Kevin Lee in July
WelterweightUFC
May 23, 2021
Brady (14-0-0) will take on Kevin Lee (18-6-0) in a welterweight matchup at UFC 264 on July 10, Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Brady is an up-and-coming prospect who has gotten off to a hot start by winning each of his first four UFC appearances. He most recently submitted Jake Matthews at UFC 259 on March 6. His opponent hasn't competed in over a year after sitting out most of 2020 following surgery for torn ACLs in both knees. Lee has lost three of his last four fights, but is hoping for better fortunes after moving up to welterweight from lightweight. Brady seems to be a significant favorite in this one as he looks to continue his impressive run in the promotion.
Another standout effort at UFC 259
WelterweightUFC
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
