- Henry Cejudo gave his honest take on Sean Strickland’s childhood trauma and recent comments about “off limits” stuff
- “Triple C” thinks “Tarzan” and Alexander Volkanovski are wrong for publicizing their personal life issues
Henry Cejudo suggested that Sean Strickland and Alexander Volkanovski should not let the whole world know about their personal issues and just stay focused on what they need to do as fighters.
Henry gets real with Sean
Speaking on his YouTube channel, “Triple C” weighed in on Strickland’s mental state following his revelation about being abused as a kid. For Cejudo, “Tarzan” should not be speaking about “off limits” when he also made foul comments about Sean O’Malley and Ian Garry’s wife.

Cejudo thinks that it would be best for the reigning middleweight champ to either see a shrink or just play the game and not be whiny about his situation.
“At this point, I think Sean Strickland needs to go see a therapist to get over it because you should never be a prisoner of your past but a product of it. How is it that you could be that kid who was abused by your father and how that you can make an actual difference rather than vice versa,” Cejudo said.
“Sean, I hope you can come to the consensus to be able to accept the fact that you’re in this game, bro,” he added. “Learn how to play, don’t be [mimics a crying baby]. You can’t, man.”
PTSD can make a strong man weak or a weak man strong.. Years and years of abuse just changes you as a man.. The hate just doesn't go away. The sad truth is I'm one of millions but I only matter because there is a camera in my face… Most people just suffer in silence and drown… pic.twitter.com/H24KDko6GV

Alex needs to do the same thing
The outspoken former UFC two-division champ also has the same unsolicited advice for Volkanovski. According to Cejudo, “The Great,” like Strickland, should not open up about the issues he is dealing with in his personal life. Or else, they will suffer the consequences.
“It’s the same with Volkanovski,” Cejudo pointed out. “Volkanovski is showing his cards that he goes through anxiety if he doesn’t fight. Like, bro, like what the f**k. Keep some of that sh*t to yourself. The world doesn’t need to know. Especially, if it’s gonna affect you.”
Both Strickland and Volkanovski indeed need to regain composure and stay focused on their upcoming bouts. Strickland is set to defend his middleweight title agains Dricus du Plessis at UFC 297, while Volk will take on Ilia Topuria in a featherweight title showdown at UFC 298.
