Sean Strickland made plenty of headlines earlier this year when he was the target of a “dbag” move during a rolling session with Orlando Sanchez at RVCA gym. The move in question was likely used in order to hurt Strickland – who was preparing to fight Uriah Hall at the time.
But this grappling experience would perhaps inspire Strickland to do more jiu jitsu in future – which led to him accepting a spot on Chael Sonnen’s Submission Underground. There Strickland grappled in a cage against Andy Varela.
The match was received without much fanfare in spite of Strickland being a long time member of the UFC.

No word yet if this experience in jiu jitsu will deter Strickland from future appearances in the SUG cage.
