Las Vegas, NV — Casual MMA fans should know who Sean Brady is after his latest win.
Brady (15-0) stayed undefeated and picked up the biggest win of his career as he defeated the No. 6 ranked welterweight Michael Chiesa via unanimous decision at UFC Vegas 43 on Saturday.
For years, the hardcore fans and media have known how talented Sean Brady is, and now with a name like Chiesa on his resume, he believes casual fans should be aware of him as well.
“I didn’t really have that name but beating Chiesa, the casuals are going to know who I am. But like you said, the hardcore people and the people who trained with me, they know what I am and know what I do. So this wasn’t even a scratch of the surface of what I can do and what I’m going to show,” Brady told Cageside Press during his post-fight interview.
On Tuesday, Brady should crack the top ten and potentially take Chiesa’s number. When that happens, there are only a few people ahead of him before a title shot could be in his future. And to get to that title, he will have to go through killers.
The Philadelphia fighter wants to face the winner of Stephen Thompson vs. Belal Muhammad, a fight that goes down on December 18 at UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Daukaus.
“I think the winner of Belal [Muhammad] and Wonderboy would be fun, you know? I don’t know what they are both ranked, but I know they are both in the top ten. I know that rankings come out on Tuesday, and I’m sure I will land somewhere in the top 10, and then we can go from there,” Brady said. “I have a couple of tattoo appointments that I have to get taken care of when I get back to Philly, and I have to get my nose fixed— it’s been a long time coming… after that, the first quarter of 2022, let’s run it.”
