According to Sean Brady, the UFC is trying to rebook him against Belal Muhammad.

Brady (15-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) was scheduled to face Muhammad in December 2020, but their bout was scrapped after Brady withdrew. Since then, Brady has picked up wins over Jake Matthews and Michael Chiesa.

Muhammad (21-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC), on the other hand, is coming off four consecutive wins, including back-to-back dominant performances against former title challenger Stephen Thompson and the streaking Vicente Luque.

@bullyb170 I know the ufc is calling. pick up the

and agree to the fight. Nowhere to run now. I am coming for you.”

Muhammad, who recently entered the UFC’s top five welterweight rankings, has been eyeing fights with the likes of Khamzat Chimaev and Colby Covington and isn’t keen on fighting backwards.

Lol didn’t u pull out of our first flight clown who’s running ..: it’s funny u got twitter fingers now but went silent when @handzofsteelmma was calling ..there’s 4 guys above me without a fight I’m tryin to fight.”

Brady also has expressed interest in fighting Thompson, but if he can’t get “Wonderboy” or Muhammad next, he has two other names in mind: fan favorites Jorge Masvidal and Nick Diaz.

@WonderboyMMA, @ufc told you to fight me. You flat out said, “no,” because you are scared. U can’t stay in the rankings refusing to fight ranked fighter. Step up let’s go!”

If @bullyb170 @WonderboyMMA don’t wanna fight how about @GamebredFighter @nickdiaz209, let’s show this division what’s up #bmf#badthingshappeninphilly.”

@bullyb170 all you do is talk shit and call for people ahead of you so what does that make you 🤡

Everyone you fought was ranked higher than you time to return the favor

If you are as good as you say I should be easy work Let’s see how much of a bully you are I’ll be waiting

Undefeated Brady recently signed with Moments Management, who represent the likes of Bellator middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi, former title challenger Alexander Gustafsson, and rising flyweight contender Manon Fiorot.

Brady’s new manager, Nima Safapour, voiced his frustration with Muhammad’s unwillingness to accept a matchup with his client and claimed Muhammad has stopped responds to the UFC’s push for the bout (via Instagram):

Reality is this, UFC told Belal to fight Sean Brady, and Belal has stopped answering his telephone. The 4 guys ranked ahead of Belal have no intention of fighting him and the UFC has other plans for them. The only available fighter is Sean Brady. It makes sense for him to fight #5 ranked Belal as the last guy he beat was ranked #6 in the division. Belal needs to step up, accept the fight, and listen to who his employers are telling him to fight. Truth.
