    This match up is one of many great fights on the UFC 264. This is a phenomenal fight, but no one is talking about this fight at all. Wtf.

    Sean Brady is 14-0 (4-0 UFC), and Kevin Lee is just coming off a great ko win against Gregor who looked phenomenal in his last fight. Well I stand corrected, he fought Oliveira who's a current LW champ after that.

    I am on Brady bandwaggon, I think he can be top 5 at least and I don't like Kevin Lee, but this is very interesting fight because

    Kevin Lee has 5 inch reach advantage. That can be a significant reach advantage, especially in a fight between two plodding wrestler/grapplers.

    And Sean Brady's pretty complete fighter, but his go to is his suffocating top game, but I happen to think, cardio permitting, Kevin Lee can outwrestle Sean Brady. I think Kevin is a better wrestler of the two. Brady tend to just power through people, but Kevin Lee should be a better wrestler of the two.

    This is a very very interesting fight. I personally think though Brady is undefeated welterweight, and Kevin Lee is Kevin Lee, Kevin Lee is a tough match up for Brady, only because styles make fights.

    At the end of the day, Kevin Lee often finds a way to snatch the defeat out of the jaws of victory, and Sean Brady finds a way to win, so I'd favour Brady, but if you ask me, I personally think Brady has much easier match up than Kevin Lee at top 5 and top 10. I mean Chiesa is top 6 for fuck's sake, whom Kevin Lee has a submission win over.

    Being on Brady bandwaggon, I wish Brady took on a different fight. I really think unless Kevin Lee once again finds a way to lose, he is more than capable of upsetting unbeaten welterweight in Brady. But Kevin Lee never fails to underperform and give away wins and find a way to lose....so we will see...

    I didn't even know it was a figh so maybe that has something to do with it having no hype

    I'm predicting that Lee will gas and get subbed in the third round. Brady is too strong and has displayed better cardio than Lee.

    But yeah, I'm hyped for this one

    This fight is def flying under the radar.

    I’m more pumped up for this than I am the first 3 fights of the main card

    A guy who would give Khamzat a run for his money. Remember his name, this guy is uber prospect.

    Probably because Lee is coming from a loss and hasn't fought in a while. Sean Brady is a good prospect but no one knows who he is. Hence no hype.

    Lol nice. I think Kevin Lee can win this though. If Kevin Lee doesn't find a way to lose again, I think he can win this. Dont' like this match up for Brady. I'd even rather have him against Khamzat than Kevin Lee, when I think Khamzat would beat even Covington, and I don't even like Kevin Lee.

    I just think this isn't a good match up for Brady. I'd think most likely outcome is Kevin Lee snatching the defeat out of jaws of victory though...

    I still think that Lee has a lot of upside, and his performance against Oliveira isn't that bad in hindsight.

    I'll take your a advice and keep this dude in mind. Especially if he ends up beating FKL.

    I think Brady can end Khamzat hype. But I don't really like this Kevin Lee fight.

    Why would anyone be hyped about two manlets fighting?

    Wasn't aware of it, but I'm excited now that I am. Gotta check the line on Brady.

    I'm excited for it, but if there's no hype behind it, it might be because Brady is still mostly unknown to the masses/casuals. That's my impression anyway. I never see/hear anything about him outside of his fight nights.
