Not fighting Luque
WelterweightUFC
January 31, 2024
Brady (undisclosed) is not fighting Vicente Luque at UFC Atlantic City, according to MMAJunkie.com.
ANALYSIS
Despite the fact that UFC CEO Dana White announced a fight between Brady and Luque, they never signed a bout agreement, as the former was dealing with an undisclosed injury that is still affecting him. With how severe it sounds, there stands at least a decent chance that he will not be able to compete until the second half of 2024.

January 12, 2024
Brady is scheduled to face Vicente Luque in a welterweight matchup at the UFC's March 30 event in Atlantic City, UFC president Dana White announced Friday via social media.
ANALYSIS
Brady is coming off an impressive win against Kelvin Gastelum in December last year, but that was his lone fight in 2023 since his two previous bouts were canceled. When counting only the fights that did happen, Brady has gone 4-1 over his last five events.
Dominates Kelvin Gastelum
WelterweightUFC
December 2, 2023
Brady defeated Kelvin Gastelum via submission (kimura) at 1:43 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Austin, Texas.
ANALYSIS
This was a rout from start to finish in a fight which went off as roughly a pick 'em. Recognizing Gastelum -- who was returning to welterweight for the first time since July 2016 -- couldn't handle his wrestling game, Brady fired off five takedown attempts, landing all of them. Kelvin had zero chance of winning a position on the mat, as Sean had the answer whenever he tried to escape. It was a resounding rebound effort from Brady on the heels of his knockout loss to Belal Muhammad in October 2022. It's always a concern in regards to how Brady will generate offense when his takedowns aren't landing, but he's a legitimate elite grappler. Don't give up on the 31-year-old Philadelphia native just yet. He'll also take home a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts here, which was awarded to each of the evening's finishers.
