Sean Brady (12-0) has never lost a fight at pro or amateur (16-0), and he aims for his third octagon win Saturday, 8/29, at UFC Vegas 8. The welterweight is coming off a six-month layoff, fitting a win over prospect Ismail Naurdiev just before COVID struck America in March. Christian “The Beast” Aguilera (14-6) will stand opposite of Brady in the octagon on Saturday night. Aguilera is fresh off his first UFC victory in June, where he made a statement with a round one knockout on just days’ notice. On a stacked card, it’s the first fight on the prelims starting at 5 PM ET.
Brady was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey but spent his childhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Brady fell in love with Jiu-Jitsu early on, walking through Daniel Gracie’s doors at Renzo Gracie Philly and never looking back. Now still living and fighting out of the City of Brotherly Love, Sean splits time between Gracie’s and Webb Fitness & MMA to work his boxing and wrestling. His regular training partners consist of UFC Lightweight contender Paul Felder and former champ at 155 lbs. Eddie Alvarez.
This camp has been drastically different for Sean Brady, but he keeps rolling with the punches. Both gyms he trains regularly trains at have been closed for his camp. Instead, he gave fellow Philly native Eddie Alvarez a ring and they agreed to start a backyard camp for Sean’s fight.
Including pro and amateur, Sean Brady rides a 16-fight unbeaten streak in Sin City Saturday evening. When he mixes his strong striking and an expert ground game well, he looks like a future title contender. This fight is can’t miss and it goes down at the Apex August 29, at UFC Vegas 8.
