Sean Brady stayed undefeated Saturday night at UFC Vegas 8, picking up a second-round submission victory over Christian Aguilera.

Christian Aguilera was looking to follow up a big win in his octagon debut with an even better performance Saturday. At UFC Vegas 8, Aguilera had his sophomore outing in the UFC, taking on the undefeated Sean Brady, who was 2-0 in his own UFC run to date.

The welterweight bout was the third in on Saturday’s card, which took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the end, it was Brady serving up the first loss of Aguilera’s UFC tenure.

Aguilera started off fast and began pushing the pace to start. He landed a stiff leg kick, and Brady responded with a hard left hand. Brady was on the back foot, but he was still landing some good shots early, with some hard leg kicks and left hooks. One of those hooks opened up a cut over Aguilera’s eye. Whether that would cause any vision issues moving forward remained to be seen.

Both men were looking to land leg kicks and chop down the other, but neither was having much of an effect early. Aguilera started putting together some combinations near the end of the round, but Brady got a takedown to stop him in his tracks. Brady ended the round on top after landing some hard shots.

Brady got his second takedown of the fight much quicker than the first, scoring the takedown a minute into round two. Brady moved to mount and looked to get a guillotine from the top, while Aguilera did his best to fight off the submission. However Brady would crank on it, and he would end up putting Aguilera out cold!

Just like that, Sean Brady moves to 3-0 in the UFC. Super impressive win by the undefeated fighter. With his third win in the UFC, one has to wonder when he’s going to be facing someone in the top 15. At the very least, he’ll need a step up in competition.

Official Result: Sean Brady def. Chrisitan Aguilera by technical submission (guillotine choke), Round 2, 1:40
