UFC 290 has encountered a setback just a week before the event, as Sean Brady has been compelled to withdraw from his welterweight bout against the rising star, Jack Della Maddalena.
Several sources familiar with the matter confirmed the news to MMA Hook on Friday, and Brady himself posted a photo on Instagram showing him receiving fluids or medication with the caption “Day 4.” The initial report of Brady’s withdrawal surfaced on Twitter.
Following Brady’s exit, Della Maddalena eagerly awaits news about a possible replacement. His camp conveyed to MMA Hook that the Australian fighter is prepared to take on “anyone” weighing between 170 to 185 pounds.
Currently undefeated in the octagon with four victories, all of which were first-round finishes, Della Maddalena is regarded as a potential future title contender. Rather than waiting for a ranked opponent or rescheduling the fight, he has decided to remain in Las Vegas, hoping for an opportunity to compete on July 8.
Unfortunately for Brady, this news follows his previous withdrawal from a scheduled bout against Michel Pereira in March. The Philadelphia native has been eager to rebound from his first career loss suffered against Belal Muhammad in October last year.
It seems that Brady will have to wait for another opportunity to get back on track, as he has been forced out of UFC 290. Meanwhile, Della Maddalena awaits updates on the possibility of participating in a different fight.
