From physical altercations in the gym to threatening violence against their critics, you can probably describe UFC middleweight Sean Strickland as a somewhat loose cannon. He admits to having murder fantasies and a neo-Nazi past, which exacerbates his already controversial image.
Recently, the 30-year-old fighter has once again run into some trouble. In a video he posted via Instagram, he was seen playing some words with another man on Strickland Road.
“Pull down your window,” Strickland heard him say. “Do you have a gun or a knife? I’m saying pull up. No guns or knives. ”
Before the 15-second clip ends, the other person is asked to say “bullets.”
Strickland was not ashamed of the aggressive approach to both his life and his career.
In the current five-game winning streak, Strickland (24-3) will face Luke Rockhold at UFC 268. However, the former champion was ruled out due to injury and the fight was later canceled.
Strickland last saw action against Uriah Hall in July, defeating him by unanimous decision.
