Sean Brady’s wife received threats in lead up to UFC 280 clash with Belal Muhammad

Brady was undefeated going into UFC 280 and as such had never experienced online bullying that’s a staple of many devastating losses in the UFC. But interestingly, this time he received threats ahead of the event.

In his most recent, Brady faced Belal Muhammad. His unbeaten streak of 15 wins was on the line against Muhammad, who was trying to win his eighth straight.

Muhammad came out swinging, and by the end of the second round, he had TKOed Brady.

Sean Brady appeared on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani and discussed the messages his wife got in lead up to UFC 280.

“Someone messaged her and said that if I won the fight against Belal that they would kill me and bury me in the desert – it was pretty bad,” Brady said

“She was right there front row sitting with [Joe Pyfer], and she busted through the security and got to me when I was walking out of the [octagon], but she was right there [in Abu Dhabi] with me, [and] she got messages.”

Brady condemned the fans interaction with his wife.

“Dude, these fans, they’re sc*mbags,” Brady said. “Don’t get me wrong, there’s great fans, then there are these people with fake profiles that write to you afterward.”

“I just read this message [earlier this week] that was like, ‘You’re a piece of s***’ – they just say the most wild things to you. I don’t let it get to me. I try not to lean into that s*** anymore. But my wife, she’s a registered nurse. All she does is take care of people, and people are threatening her, calling her this, calling her that.“

If the trolls really had something to say, Brady said they could send him a private message.

“Message me. Don’t message my wife, especially if you’re a man. Be a man. Say it to me, don’t say it to my f****** wife, because my wife could probably beat you up.”

This is reminiscent of the abuse Johnny Walker’s fiancé got after his knock out. She ended up sharing many DMs she got from fans and penned a long post condemning the move.
