Michael Chiesa (17-5) is fresh off a round one submission to Brazil’s Vincente Luque at UFC 265. The Ultimate Fighter winner will be eager to right the wrong and get straight back to work on November 20 to solidify himself as a future title contender once again.
Despite the recent setback, Chiesa was enduring his best run with the UFC. Establishing a four-fight win streak over dangerous opponents in Carlos Condit, Diego Sanchez, Dos Anjos, and Neil Magny. Can Chiesa get back on the horse?
Sean Brady (14-0) has been a breath of fresh air since joining the UFC in late 2019. Brady has showcased that he has tremendous potential to push on for title contention, and there’s no better way to make that claim with a win over Michael Chiesa on November 20.
Brady’s UFC debut set the tone for what would follow. With victories over Court McGee, Ismail Naurdiev, and more recently submission wins over Christian Aguilera and Jake Matthews, Brady has displayed his all-around game as a mixed martial artist. He can grind out tough decisions, has the power to shut your lights, and has impressive submission credentials—a tough night at the office for anyone.
