Jack Della Maddalena

An intense banger is coming to the UFC’s welterweight division as Jack Della Maddalena and Sean Brady have agreed to throw down at UFC 290 on July 8th in Las Vegas.

As confirmed by MMA Fighting after an initial Twitter report, this welterweight scrap seems to be signed, sealed, and ready to deliver some explosive fireworks.

JDM is riding an impressive four-fight win streak, all via finishes after originally breaking into the UFC thanks to a shot on Dana White‘s Contender Series back in 2021. For Sean Brady, this will be his redemption fight as the previously undefeated prospect suffered the first loss in his professional career at the hands of Belal Muhammad back in October of 2022.

Jack Della Maddalena and Sean Brady are set for what could be a potential Fight of The Year contender at UFC 290

Jack Della Maddalena and Brady are set to join a PPV card that is looking to be a night of amazing fights. Alexander Volkanovski and Yair Rodriguez are set to headline the card. Rodriguez will be looking to end Volkanovski’s flawless reign as champion at UFC 290 and unify the interim and undisputed championships.

The co-main will feature the always-exciting Brandon Moreno as he’ll attempt to defend his flyweight title against what many would call the dark horse of the division: Alexandre Pantoja.

Bo Nickal makes a return, and he’s going to be taking on a very serious opponent. Tresean Gore is a young up-and-comer with a hard past and a family to fight for. Both fighters are known for their heart and ability, but will Nickal make easy work of Gore as he did with his last opponent Jamie Pickett?
