- Sean Strickland is not happy about the suspension of his Twitter account
- “Tarzan” thinks Khamzat Chimaev will get the better of Alex Pereira
Following his devastating KO loss to Alex Pereira, the outspoken Sean Strickland has been back in training and as expected, back in talking trash as well. In a recent interview, “Tarzan” took a shot at Twitter and predicted how things will play out should Pereira and Khamzat Chimaev meet inside the octagon.
No love for Twitter
It can be recalled that Strickland got his Twitter account suspended following some insensitive comments about the transgender and LGBTQ+ community. Evidently, “Tarzan” did not like it and his stance on the matter has not changed one bit.
“Oh man, Twitter. F*cking Twitter,” Strickland told Helen Yee Sports. “Twitter has just become a liberal, safe place cesspool and I didn’t think that my brand of f*cking white trash redneck is meant to be on the Twitter. So no more tweet tweets from this guy… Everytime I post something, I get reported… Twitter, it’s a cesspool like, it’s downhill man. Elon Musk is pulling out like Twitter, it’s dead.”
Khamzat is no Sean
After Pereira viciously knocked Strickland out at UFC 276, welterweight contender Khamzat Chimaev expressed his interest in taking on the Brazilian who beat Israel Adesanya in kickboxing.
Weighing in on a potential Pereira vs. Chimaev fight, “Tarzan” said he thinks “Borz” wouldn’t make the same mistake he did and could win via decision. However, Strickland also suggested that it would be a boring fight.
“I think Chimaev will pull that off,” he assessed. “Chimaev’s not me, he’s not going to be an egotistical f***head. Chimaev’s going to do what he does and he wrestles. Me on the other hand, said ‘f*** that Brazilian, we’re going to kickbox’.”
“Should I have wrestled? Maybe,” he continued. “But, I think if Chimaev went in there and wrestled hard, I think he could grind out three rounds with him and take a “W”. But again, no one wants to see that s**t. It’s MMA, but it’s really kickboxing.”
The KO loss to Pereira saw Strickland ending his beautiful six-fight win streak and out of the top five. But for sure, whoever “Tarzan” faces next will be an exciting fight for obvious reasons.
