Sean Brady, Gilbert Urbina preview LFA 49 main event with Phoenix Carnevale

For the first time tonight, LFA has set up camp in New Jersey.

LFA 49 takes place at the Golden Nugget Casino, Hotel & Marina in Atlantic City. Although LFA has held events on the East Coast before, it hasn’t yet done so in the “Garden State.” The main card airs on AXS TV.

The main event will feature a pair of unbeaten welterweights. Sean Brady (8-0) will take on Gilbert Urbina (5-0) in the event’s headliner.

Brady, from nearby Philadelphia, will be making his promotional debut. He started his pro career 7-0, all under the CFFC banner. His wins there included a first-round submission of Saraceno, who fights right before him at LFA 49. In March, he took a unanimous decision from UFC veteran Colton Smith in a Shogun Fights event.

Urbina, from Texas, will be fighting for the first time in 19 months. His most recent bout was a rear-naked choke win over Noel Ligon in the first round at LFA 7 in March 2017. And that fight was his return to action after nearly two years off.

Ahead of the headlining clash, AXS TV Fights’ Phoenix Carnevale caught up with Brady and Urbina to break down their fight. Check out the video above. Then don’t miss LFA 49 tonight on AXS TV.
