Brady just lately revealed he’s trying to come again no later than August and with the surging welterweight garnering “boogeyman” standing, here’s a have a look at three opponents who make sense for Brady’s eventual return.

Vicente Luque

A struggle between sixth-ranked Vicente Luque and Sean Brady could be a enjoyable one. Luque is coming off a loss to Belal Muhammad through unanimous choice by which he struggled in opposition to the wrestling of Muhammad.

Luque could be as soon as once more tasked to tackle one other sturdy wrestler in a bout with Brady, however would absolutely come into the struggle maybe with a gameplan in opposition to that fashion of fight that he didn’t have in opposition to Muhammad, which might as soon as once more give Luque momentum again into the highest 5 of this loaded division and be the primary man handy Brady a loss on his unblemished document.

For Brady, it could be fascinating to see how he can ship in opposition to a prolific striker of Luque’s caliber in addition to gameplan for the Brazilian’s elite Jiu-Jitsu abilities. A win in opposition to Luque would propel him proper to the doorstep of the highest 5 contenders.

Gilbert Burns

Both Gilbert Burns and Sean Brady have expressed curiosity in going through off in opposition to one another.

Gilbert Burns is coming off a razor-close struggle of the yr contender with one other rising welterweight title contender in Khamzat Chimaev at UFC 273. Although it is vitally seemingly Burns wouldn’t be too desirous about as soon as in opposition to placing his high 5 rating in danger in opposition to one other lower-ranked opponent like Sean Brady, “Durinho” can also be lobbying for a struggle in opposition to Jorge Masvidal. It can be robust to say when Masvidal can be accessible attributable to his very publicized courtroom points with fellow welterweight Colby Covington. Should the struggle between Burns and Masvidal fail to materialize, Brady may very well be the doable dance companion Burns must hold energetic and decide who deserves the highest 5 spot between the 2.

Belal Muhammad

Sean Brady just lately revealed that the UFC is making an attempt to rebook him in opposition to fifth-ranked Belal Muhammad.

Muhammad, in the meantime, has received 4 straight, most notable being his final two dominant performances in opposition to Stephen Thompson and Vicente Luque.

Muhammad at present is trying to struggle Khamzat Chimaev and Colby Covington in hopes of incomes the subsequent title shot, and doesn’t appear to fancy any fights on lower-ranked fighters, particularly Sean Brady, who has continued to name him out.

Unfortunately for Muhammad, Covington hasn’t expressed any need to struggle anybody outdoors Dustin Poirier or Kamaru Usman. Chimaev is trying to struggle Nate Diaz, Covington, or Usman. Should the UFC give Brady the “Chimaev push” that earned him a struggle in opposition to Gilbert Burns, Belal Muhammad could be the right struggle for Sean Brady to get as the 2 very good grapplers would placed on a present and settle their outdated grudge.
