WATCH: Jake Matthews submitted at UFC 259 in third round

Jake Matthews has had his three-fight winning streak snapped at UFC 259 in Las Vegas.

Taking on undefeated prospect Sean Brady, Matthews had his moments on the feet but was ultimately dominated by Brady in the grappling exchanges.

The first round started well for Matthews, dropping Brady with a right hand.

Brady quickly scrambled to his feet and managed to get on top of Matthews. From there, Brady showed he was a step ahead on the ground, smothering the Aussie with relentless top-pressure.

Matthews was finding his range well on the feet but Brady took him down in the second and again in the third round. Matthews was unable to get up from the bottom and the pressure eventually became too much, with Brady forcing Matthews to tap to a head and arm choke in the third.


It is Matthews first loss in the UFC since 2018 after racking wins over Rostem Akman, Emil Meek and Diego Sanchez. The loss brings his overall professional record to 17-5.

Sean Brady proved himself to be one to keep an eye on, staying undefeated and bringing his record to 14-0, including four wins in the UFC.
