Sean Strickland had a wild 24 hours. 

On Friday, the former middleweight world champion kickstarted his day by putting an absolute beating on controversial Rumble streamer Sneako during an intense sparring session. A video of the incident quickly went viral and drew the ire of another popular online personality — Jake Paul. 

‘The Problem Child’ dubbed Strickland a bully and offered him $1 million to come to Puerto Rico so they could have their own sparring session in front of cameras. 

After a lengthy back-and-forth with Paul on social media, Strickland headed to a star-studded Power Slap event in Las Vegas during Super Bowl LVIII weekend. There, ‘Tarzan’ had another awkward altercation — this time with musician and actor Machine Gun Kelly. InsideFighting caught part of the squabble on camera. 

It’s not quite clear what started the altercation, but Strickland can be heard calling MGK “weird” and disparaging his wardrobe. As he walked away, Strickland turned back around and said, “I’m easy to find, vampire man.” He later spoke of the incident on X, writing:

“I almost hit a vampire tonight… lol!” Strickland wrote. “They said his name is machine gun kelly.. How do you have a dope ass name and dress like a 13 goth south park character?!?”

He followed that up with another post tagging MGK’s girlfriend, Megan Fox, once he discovered that the Transformers star was actively dating the Grammy-nominated artist.  

“You guys what the f*ck is going on………. Transformers Megan Fox is with that thing….. what the actual f*ck has happened to the world?! What did I miss? Is she OK? Is this man the devil? @meganfox are you ok? Do you need assistance?!”

Dana White Responds to Sean Strickland-MGK Incident

UFC CEO Dana White — who was on hand for the festivities — briefly spoke about the altercation, noting that you simply can’t take Sean Strickland anywhere that involves being around other people.  

“You can’t bring Sean Strickland around any other human beings,” White said after a long pause. “You know what I mean? It has nothing to do with Machine Gun Kelly. It’s about humans.”
