Sean Brady has announced that he will not compete at UFC 290 PPV event against Jack Della Maddalena.

Brady was set to face Maddalena in a welterweight bout on July 10, 2023, but he withdrew from the match because of an injury. Twitter Handle Bendaman was the first to report on Brady’s injury first. Full Send MMA reported that Brady is currently in the hospital, although the nature injury was not disclosed.

This is the second fight in a row for Sean Brady to be canceled due to an injury. He bout against Michel Pereira in March was also canceled due to an injury. Brady’s last fight came against Belal Muhammad at UFC 280 event, where he lost by TKO.

As of now, it is not clear whether Maddalena will remain on UFC 290 card or not. During the UFC Fight Pass Invitational 4, Joaquin Buckley expressed that he wanted to fight Maddalena at UFC 293 event. But Maddalena replied that he wanted Buckley to step in as a replacement at UFC 290 itself.

Maddalena is currently on a 14-fight winning streak, 4 of which have come under UFC’s banner. He was signed by UFC after a win in Dana White Contender Series 2021. Apart from Randy Brown at UFC 284, he has also beaten Pete Rodriguez, Ramazan Emeev and Danny Roberts via knockout.
