Andrew Tate accuses UFC’s Sean Strickland of ‘copying’ him

Controversial social media figure Andrew Tate has levelled serious allegations against former UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland, asserting that Strickland is merely “copying” his ideologies.

Back in 2022, Andrew Tate’s ascent to prominence was nothing short of extraordinary. The former four-time kickboxing champion managed to secure the third spot as the most “googled” person in 2023. His dominance on the internet was undeniable, marked by heated debates and controversial remarks, particularly those deemed “misogynistic” towards women.

Recently, Tate has criticized Sean Strickland on social media in recent tweets for supposedly “copying” his teachings even though Tate is “hated” by the UFC star.

The clash between these two personalities escalated when in a podcast following his win over Israel Adesanaya in September 2023, Strickland unleashed a verbal rant. He ended up labeling Andrew Tate as a “piece of s**t.”

Fast forward to January 24, the controversial influencer responded to a widely shared video of Strickland discussing the difficulties of being imprisoned in the “matrix.” He criticized Strickland for “copying” what he teaches his followers on Twitter.

Tate stated: “So he says ‘hates me’ on a podcast but then copies everything I teach. I’m not mad. Glad there’s more people who understand – We must free minds.”

Despite Strickland’s active presence on social media, he has not yet responded to Tate’s accusations of copying. The former UFC champion seems to be contemplating a shift beyond the combat sports arena, eyeing a potential role in public office post-retirement.

Despite having his middleweight title stripped following UFC 297, Strickland shows no signs of slowing down. Already taking shots at the new belt holder Dricus Du Plessis, a fiery rematch appears to be on the horizon.

Fans are eagerly anticipating what Strickland’s next moves will be in the UFC. As for Du Plessis, he aims to compete against Israel Adesanya next.
