Sean Brady is currently 14-0 after dominating Jake Matthews on the floor before procuring a third-round entry at UFC 259.
Brady clinched his fourth octagon triumph by securing an arm-triangle in the 3: 28 markers of the third circular. Early standup work that was evenly matched was not so much when the battle hit the mat.
Check out the finish below.

Afterward, Brady predicted to rebook a fight with Belal Muhammad, whom he was initially predicted to meet UFC Vegas 19 before both have been ruled from the occasion. Muhammad went on to outpoint Dhiego Lima and take a short-notice struggle with Leon Edwards in UFC Vegas 21.
Matthews gave Brady a run for his money from the first using a punch that made a knockdown. But Brady simply transitioned into unwanted control in top position, and there, he established a path to success. From there, all trades on the feed were followed by takedowns. By the end of the moment, Brady was nearing victory using a submission as he got Matthews to give up his back following a flurry of punches.
In the final frame, Brady rocked Matthews having a hook and took top position prior to punches setup the fight-ending choke. Brady is currently 4-0 at the UFC while Matthews sees a three-fight series, including a win over vet Diego Sanchez, snapped from the up-and-comer.
