The welterweight contender Sean Brady finally got an opportunity to fight this year after his match against Jack Della Maddalena got canceled. Sean Brady is going to face the well-experienced Kelvin Gastelum; the fight is expected to take place on 2nd December.

Gastelum has moved down to the welterweight division and will be fighting in the weight class after 7 years.

Sean Brady is not bothered by Kelvin Gastelum not making weight, as he aims to take 30% from his purse for not fulfilling his commitment to maintaining the right weight. It is an important fight for both fighters; it will be interesting to see who ends up on the winning page.

Recently, on Sirius XM’s Fight Nation, Sean Brady shared his thoughts on fighting a well-known opponent like Kelvin Gastelum. “They hit me up and told me that’s who it was going to be and then they came at me with Kelvin because Vicente is fighting Ian Garry now,” Brady said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.

“It’s a huge fight and like you were even saying to me, he has a huge name, he’s been around forever. He’s fought some of the best guys. He’s beat some of the best guys, lost to some of the best guys.

Now he’s coming back down to 170, which he’s definitely a 170 pounder. He took Izzy to a split decision. He lost a split decision to one of the best 185’ers on the planet. If that’s not going to get you to train hard, I don’t think anything is.

Brady on Kelvin Gastelum missing weight: I’m super excited just to test myself. That’s what I’m here to do. I’m here to fight the best, and Kelvin is one of the best. Hopefully there’s no trouble for him making 170 and Dec.

2 we’ll get to get after it. And listen, if he misses by a couple, I know Kelvin is probably getting some big paychecks, so I’ll take that 30 percent. But if he misses by 10 pounds like he did against Woodley, I don’t even think they would let the fight happen”.
