During a recent round of sparring, Sean Strickland was seen throwing heavy punches.
The controversial UFC middleweight contender is never one to back down from a war, whether it be on the street, in the Octagon, or in the gym. The middleweight was seen hurling punches at unbeaten professional boxer Robin Safar in a video clip that Strickland posted on Twitter.
Safar is unbeaten in the ring with a 15-0 record, with 11 of those wins coming by knockout. Safar had no intention of giving up while training against Strickland, as seen in the video. However, Strickland threw strong punches with each exchange as they sparred.
Sean Strickland is renowned for becoming physical during sparring. The middleweight has a reputation for going hard at just about everyone who steps up. This includes other MMA vets, professional boxers, and sometimes even an online troll who wants to square off against one of the finest strikers in the world.
In his most recent bout inside the Octagon, Sean Strickland defeated Nassourdine Imavov by unanimous decision in January. After consecutive defeats against the current middleweight champion Alex Pereira and Jared Cannonier, he finally won a match. While Strickland has yet to choose his next challenger, it is most likely that he will face either Dricus Du Plessis or the freshly re-signed Brazilian star Paulo Costa.
Recently, the MMA world was divided by Dricus Du Plessis’ comment that he was more African than Kamaru Usman. Although some people believe Du Plessis is accurate since he spent most of his life in North America, others believe Kamaru Usman is correct because he was born in Nigeria.
UFC middleweight Sean Strickland expressed his viewpoint on Twitter. He wrote:
“You mother f*ckers aren’t going to like this but I think Dricus is more of an African than the entire African UFC roster living in America. By your logic if you’re not a pasty white guy then you’re not American. Mother f*cker is born and lives in Africa… idiots..”
