Since signing with the UFC in 2019, Brady is 5-1 with two submission wins and three decision wins which includes some notable names like Michael Chiesa and Jake Matthews. The No. 8 welterweight will be looking to back up the lone loss of his campaign, a second-round TKO setback to Belal Muhammad at UFC 280 Abu Dhabi.
