Sean Brady will get the opportunity to rebound from the first loss of his MMA career when he collides with red-hot welterweight prospect Jack Della Maddalena for the upcoming UFC 290 pay-per-view (PPV) event, locked and loaded for Sat., July 8, 2023 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Twitter account “Bendaman” first reported the bout on Sunday.

Brady (15-1) jumped out to an electric 5-0 start under the UFC banner with a pair of submission finishes, turning away a couple of established veterans like Court McGee and Michael Chiesa along the way. Then came a stunning knockout loss to top contender Belal Muhammad and it’s back to the drawing board.

As for Maddalena (14-2), he made his mark on Dana White’s “Contender Series” in late 2021 and has been electric ever since, to the tune of four straight wins with four first-round finishes. That includes his destruction of Jamaican “Rude Boy” Randy Brown at UFC 284 just a few months back.

UFC 290 is expected to feature the featherweight title fight between reigning 145-pound champion Alexander Volkanovski and current interim titleholder Yair Rodriguez. Elsewhere on the card, Brandon Moreno returns to defend his flyweight title against longtime 125-pound rival Alexandre Pantoja.

Expect more UFC 290 fight card announcements in the coming weeks.
