The fight against Belal Muhammad at UFC 280 wasn’t the only pressure on Sean Brady, as the UFC welterweight reveals he was at the receiving end of vicious threats from some horrible fans.
These fans, they’re scumbags: Sean Brady details the threats
The 29-year-old from Philadelphia took on the 4th ranked 170-pounders on the prelims of UFC 280 which took place on 22nd October in Abu Dhabi. Heading into hostile environment, it was expected that Brady would face the heat from the local fans, but what Brady didn’t anticipate was the threats that swarmed in towards both him and his wife Kristen Green.
“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. She was right there front row sitting with (Joe Pyfer),” Brady said On Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, “She busted through the security and got to me when I was walking out of the (Octagon). But, she was right there with me, (and) she got messages.”
The fight, however, ended with Brady suffering his first career defeat via 2nd round TKO, but it was the threats that were sent to both of them, especially to Kristen who is a nurse, that was the one that struck a nerve more than the loss for Brady.
“Dude, these fans, they’re scumbags,” Brady went on, “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**t – 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. 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,” he added. [H/T BJPenn.com]
