Sean Strickland has cornered the market on being a mixed martial arts dbag as of late. Strickland’s infamy began with the infamous video of him confronting ADCC gold medalist Orlando Sanchez after he pulled a dirty move during sparring.
It escalated after that into death threats and general shock jockery.
In a revealing interview Strickland admitted he’s gone through a Neo nazi white supremacist phase in his younger days. Another thing he’s vocal about is his anger issues:
“To me, I was really f—ing angry. I was so angry. I actually went through this neo-nazi, white supremacist phase when I was younger. I got kicked out of school for a hate crime. All this crazy s— where I was so angry and I had f—ed up influences in my life. It felt so good to f—ing hate something. I would walk down a street just with a knife or like a rock hoping to kill somebody. “
And finally there’s this – Sean Strickland just knocked out a sparring partner with a reckless kick
MMA community reacted to the footage:

Of course Strickland would be going 100% in an obscure gym against amateur muay thai fighters. Good thing the kid’s BJJ class had already cleared out for the day so they didn’t have to witness the fitness of the modern warrior https://t.co/vBpadfJh52

Jack Hermansson vs. Sean Strickland was being negotiated in early December. UFC wanted it to be a five-round main event at UFC Fight Night on Feb. 5, per sources.
