One of the UFC’s fastest rising 170-pounders is looking for a fight. Undefeated at 14-0, Philadelphia’s Sean Brady (14-0) has a name in mind, and it is none other than Ultimate Fighter season 15 winner Michael Chiesa (17-4).
“I’m sitting here, I don’t got no food on my plate,” Brady said while speaking on the Cagesideshow Podcast. “I’m trying to get some food on my plate.”

Brady continued to discuss about how fighters within the top 15 at welterweight were recently paired up with opponents while Chiesa is not. As of press time, Brady is currently listed at #14 on the UFC welterweight rankings while Chiesa sits in the #7 spot.
“Chiesa is open,” Brady said. “He’s 7. I’m 14. It’s not too far off. He’s a great guy, great fighter, but I think I can get that fight. If Belal (Muhammad) can get number 3, why can’t I get number 7?”
Brady is coming a third round submission victory over Jake Matthews at UFC 259 in March, while Chiesa earned a unanimous decision win over Neil Magny in January.
The former Cage Fury Fighting Championships champion has won four straight fights since joining the UFC. His wins include Matthews, Ismail Naurdiev, and Christian Aguilera, and Ultimate Fighter season 11 winner Court McGee. Not only is Brady undefeated as a professional mixed marital artist, but he’s never lost an amateur MMA fight either.
Chiesa is also on a four-fight win streak inside the octagon with victories over Magny, Ultimate Fighter season 1 winner Diego Sanchez, former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit, and former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos. His last loss came by way of submission to former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis.
What do you think fight fans, does a welterweight bout between Sean Brady and Michael Chiesa make sense?
