(Video) Sneako trains with Nate Diaz days after getting battered by Strickland

Sneako recently faced a relentless assault from former UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland during their sparring session.

After a video of Strickland beating and bloodying the notorious Rumble streamer surfaced on Friday, he became the focus of several headlines. The incident happened during an early-morning workout. In the video, Strickland launches a barrage of blows which made Sneako’s corner throw in the towel.

UFC Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin then had to intervene physically to stop Strickland from carrying out the attack.

Addressing the incident, Strickland defended his aggressive approach. He said: “When you spar these guys that want to spar, there is no respect. You haven’t earned it. You haven’t like proved yourself. You don’t deserve not to get hurt. If Forrest hadn’t jumped in, I would’ve took your life if I could’ve.”

Undeterred by the setback, Sneako sought another formidable opponent. This time, he engaged in a unique sparring session with UFC icon Nate Diaz.

Diaz and Sneako spoke for a while about his historic UFC run and how the TUF veteran keeps up his distinctive fitness routine while consuming marijuana on a daily basis.

During their time together, Sneako and Diaz engaged in sparring sessions on the mat. The UFC star also opened up about the origins of his infamous ‘Stockton Slap.’


The friendship built during these moments hinted at a more positive experience compared to Sneako’s previous encounter.

After the sparring session, Diaz surprisingly commended Sneako’s skills. He offered nothing but positive remarks. However, skepticism lingers as fans questioned whether Diaz’s praise was genuine or merely an attempt to extend kindness.

After defeating Ferguson in the UFC in 2022, Diaz exited the UFC. In August of last year, he squared off against Jake Paul in a boxing match. However, Diaz ended up losing.

Though the details of his next career move are still unknown, there have been persistent rumors of a trilogy match between him and Conor McGregor.
