Sean Brady With Potential Career-Changing UFC Bout Saturday

For the unbeaten Sean Brady, facing Michael Chiesa in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night this weekend is his biggest fight.

Sean Brady has the biggest opportunity of his career ahead of him in the UFC.

Brady will take on Michael Chiesa in the co-main event this Saturday of UFC Fight Night. The entire card streams live on ESPN+.

In the main event, Miesha Tate battles Ketlen Vieira in a female bantamweight contest.

Brady and Chiesa will square off in the welterweight division. And for a fighter making his 15th walk, it is all on the line.

A perfect 14-0 in his career, Brady has reeled off four wins since joining the UFC. None bigger than his most recent when he submitted Jake Matthews with an arm-triangle in the third at UFC 259.

The spotlight has proven to not be too big for the 28-year-old Brady, who owns three knockout and four submission wins to his credit. 

He also understands the path to becoming a champion. Brady won the Cage Fury FC welterweight title and made two successful title defenses before surrendering it to sign with the UFC.

A Philadelphia native, Brady is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Daniel Gracie. 

In Chiesa, though, he will get his toughest opponent to date.

The former Ultimate Fighter winner has been in the UFC since 2012 and is 18-5 overall in his career. Eleven of those wins have come by submission, including one over Carlos Condit. 

Chiesa has faced the best of the best in Condit, Anthony Pettis, Kevin Lee, Diego Sanchez and Rafael dos Anjos. And he is hungry after a loss to Vicente Luque in August.
