UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland sparked controversy by expressing his thoughts on women’s MMA, fueled by Paige VanZant’s revelations on the ‘Only Stans Podcast.’
The former MMA competitor recently disclosed on the ‘Only Stans Podcast’ that she earned more in 24 hours on her Only Fans platform than during her entire tenure in MMA.
Strickland tweeted the following in response to her remarks:
“Paige Vanzant said she made more on only fans in 24 hours than she did in the UFC. Let’s unpack..
1. You were signed because you’re hot.
2. Women’s MMA is lame.
3. Men will pay more to see you naked than to watch you fight. Stay in school kids, fighting sucks lol.”
Former UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko swiftly responded to Strickland’s comments, dismissing them as those of an “offended kid” who earned less throughout his entire combat sports career than female competitors.
She said: “Interesting unpack here 🤔 That looks more like an offended kid, who got less money in his entire fighter career than female fighters do! 😂 Good try, maybe UFC will see that and add some cash 💵 to your purse next time. But for now, naked is you are 😂”
The last time Valentina Shevchenko (23-4-1 MMA) competed was at the Noche UFC event in September. She lost a thrilling five rounds in a rematch with the defending flyweight champion Alexa Grasso by split decision.
Regarding Sean Strickland (28-5 MMA), the controversial American competitor will take on top contender Dricus Du Plessis in January’s UFC 297 event in Toronto in an attempt to retain his recently won middleweight world championship.
Previously, Sean Strickland also addressed issues he finds with liberal women on the social networking site X (previously Twitter). Strickland said that children of liberal women often behave strangely, and he also said that their spouses frequently show signs of s**cide.
“I can’t stand liberal women…. and usually I’ve noticed two things about them. 1. Their kids always turn out to be fu*king weirdos… 2. Their husband’s just walk around the earth miserable waiting to die…”
