Controversial UFC middleweight Sean Strickland has once again found himself in the middle of a road rage incident.
Just weeks away from his return to the Octagon, Strickland once again was part of a verbal altercation while driving. MMA Mania shared a clip of the incident and the aftermath on Twitter where it appears a driver took issue with Strickland being on his phone while driving. In the clip, Strickland says:
“So I’m driving, and yes I’m on my phone watching Garand Thumb looking at the practical accuracy of a f*cking musket. This guy pulls up next to me and he likes rolls down his window and starts honking, trying to get my attention. He starts talking shit to me and I think I misread the situation, but goddamn, he was right.”
From there, a brief video of the incident is shown where Strickland tells the driver, “If you want to get out and f*cking handle it, we’ll handle it.” The driver then asks Strickland if he has been in jail before which the middleweight contender admitted, “One or twice.”

Sean Strickland Has a History of Road Rage Incidents
It was Sean Strickland’s third road rage incident to hit the internet in the last year, the first of which came in November 2021 when he asked a driver if he had any guns or knives in his possession before offering to pull over and throw hands with the individual. In March, he recorded an incident where a woman allegedly almost ran him off the road while riding his motorcycle. Strickland posted a clip of the altercation with the caption, “God I f*cking hate old rich white women!!!!!”
Fortunately, none of Strickland’s confrontations on the road have resulted in a physical altercation.
Sean Strickland will be back in action on December 17th as the UFC closes out its 2022 with a massive middleweight scrap. Meeting him inside the Octagon will be No. 3 ranked contender Jared Cannonier. Both fighters will be looking to get back into the win column for Christmas.
Strickland is coming off a first-round knockout loss against current UFC middleweight champion Alex Pereira while Jared Cannonier’s last outing resulted in a unanimous decision loss to former middleweight titleholder Israel Adesanya.
