Sean Brady vs. Michel Pereira in the works for UFC Fight Night event on March 25

A huge welterweight bout is in the works for next March.

UFC welterweights Sean Brady and Michel Pereira are expected to meet in a high-stakes bout at the UFC Fight Night event on March 25.

Official contracts for the matchup have yet to be signed.

The 29-year-old Philadelphia native suffered the first loss of his MMA career in his most recent bout, falling short via second-round TKO to Belal Muhammad at UFC 280.

Prior to that setback, Brady racked up a 5-0 UFC record featuring wins over Michael Chiesa, Jake Matthews, and more.

He’ll now look to halt the moment of Pereira (28-11, 2 NC), a Brazilian fan favorite who has won five straight bouts under the UFC banner. Known for his flamboyant and exciting style, Pereira capped off his streak in May with a split decision win over Santiago Ponzinibbio.

The UFC’s scheduled Fight Night event on March 25 is expected to take place at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. Contender bouts Holly Holm vs. Yana Kunitskaya and Alex Perez vs. Manel Kape are also in the works for the card.
