A ranked Welterweight contest has just been booked for November as Michael Chiesa will fight Sean Brady, per Brett Okamoto of ESPN.
Two straight submissions losses (however controversial) sent Michael Chiesa (17-5) to Welterweight, where he racked up four straight wins before running into Vicente Luque last month. The last of those was a five round decision over Neil Magny in Chiesa’s first headliner at 170. Ranked at #7, Chiesa is a grappling phenom with blistering top control and a wide array of submissions.
Meanwhile, the undefeated Sean Brady (14-0) is on a tear with four straight wins inside the Octagon, including a guillotine choke submission over Christian Aguilera. He is currently ranked #13 at Welterweight and has proven himself to be a threat anywhere the fight goes. This will be his first match since March following multiple fight cancellations with Kevin Lee.
This card will take place on the currently untitled UFC Fight Night event set for November 20th, though fans can likely expect for this to take the co-main slot.
