The fight between Chiesa and Brady is very even, with no fighter having a significant advantage over the other. Stylistically, the fight will be an all-out wrestling spectacle with both fighters doing their best to get over one another. Chiesa has had eleven submission victories throughout his career and will always look to close the distance and shoot for legs.

Michael Chiesa vs Sean Brady

Brady is the more confident and young fighter in the bout. Sean has a great combination of solid boxing and an elite-level ground game. Hence, he will start off by putting as much pressure on Chiesa, and having a power advantage gives him the edge to land a knockout punch. If the fight goes to the ground, Brady will have more speed and control than Chiesa which will work in his favor. 

With the probability of this fight taking place mostly on the ground, it will be hard for Chiesa to take on a younger and more dominant fighter like Brady.
