UFC champ Sean Strickland blames the fall of vikings on empowering women

In a recent outburst, Sean Strickland has stirred controversy with his remarks on the perceived decline of Vikings. Known for his candid and often divisive opinions, Strickland attributes the transformation of Vikings from warriors to what he terms as “metrosexual” to the increasing influence of women in society.

Taking to his followers, Strickland expressed his thoughts, labeling the ancient Vikings as modern “urbanized queers” and attributing this change to the empowerment of women.

He voiced concerns about the societal consequences of women gaining more power. This is not the first time Strickland has been dismissive of women, having previously clashed with UFC fighter Paige VanZant and engaged in an ongoing feud with Valentina Shevchenko.

In a separate tweet, Strickland took a jab at the strength of Viking men, stating, “The women are fine and the men are weak.” This remark adds to his history of contentious statements regarding gender roles.

Strickland, with a record of 28-5, is set to defend his title against Du Plessis in January. His return to the octagon follows a notable upset against Israel Adesanya in September.

The controversy extends beyond gender-based remarks, as Strickland is also involved in an online feud with former UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko. The exchanges between the two fighters have included critiques of each other’s skills and nationality.
