Rolls past Michael Chiesa
WelterweightUFC
November 20, 2021
Brady defeated Michael Chiesa via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's by far the biggest victory of Brady's professional career, and he deserves credit for beating Chiesa at his own game. The consensus was that Brady would have a huge edge in the power department and remaining standing would be his clearest path to victory. Instead of following the game plan, Brady made a concerted effort to try to get Chiesa -- a standout wrestler -- to the mat early and often. It worked to the tune of five successful takedowns on eight tries, good for 7:45 worth of control time. Brady did have to survive a massive flurry from Chiesa at the end of the fight, and he may have very well been in trouble if this was a five-round main event, but it was still a stellar effort from one of the welterweight division's brightest young contenders. Brady is going to get another high-end opponent his next time out. He deserves it.

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.

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.
