UFC 280 video: Belal Muhammad scores blistering TKO win over Sean Brady

Belal Muhammad scored one of the biggest victories of his career earlier today (Sat., Oct. 22, 2022) at UFC 280 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Etihad Arena on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., when “Remember the Name” stopped a previously undefeated Sean Brady with a blistering second-round TKO (punches).

TWO TITLES UP FOR GRABS! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sat., Nov. 11, 2023, with a re-worked pay-per-view (PPV) main card. In the ESPN+-streamed main event, former 205-pound roost-ruler, Jiri Prochazka, will lock horns with ex-Middleweight kingpin, Alex Pereira, for the promotion’s vacant Light Heavyweight title. In UFC 295’s co-main event, top-ranked Heavyweight contenders, Sergei Pavlovich (No. 2) and Tom Aspinall (No. 4), will collide for the interim strap after division champion, Jon Jones, was injured with a torn pectoral muscle and forced to withdraw (video).

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Both fighters possess some of the best wrestling skills at the welterweight level, but they canceled each other out for this “Prelims” standup war. While Brady landed some great shots in the first round, Muhammad’s persistence and pressure was simply overwhelming. He started to really touch Brady on the feet and busted his nose up pretty well. Muhammad kept unloading his offense and connected on a collection of combinations and uppercuts along the cage to finish the fight in Round 2.

Check out the finishing sequence below courtesy of UFC/ESPN:

Muhammad, 34, has now captured four-straight victories over Brady, Vicente Luque, Stephen Thompson, and Demian Maia. He hasn’t lost since dropping a decision to Geoff Neal back in 2019. If this win doesn’t propel Muhammad into a No. 1 contender’s bout at 170 pounds then we don’t know what will.
