- Sean Strickland made a shocking revelation about his state of mind
- “Tarzan” said he might not do any talk shows or interviews at the moment
Despite the upset first-round KO loss to Alex Pereira at UFC 276, Sean Strickland remains a relevant fighter in the middleweight division. The 31-year-old would try to get back to the win column when he faces former title contender Jared Cannonier at UFC Fight Night 216 in December.
While gearing up for his next fight, “Tarzan” linked up with Brendan Schaub to guest on the ex-UFC heavyweight’s podcast, “Food Truck Diaries.” The episode has yet to be released but Strickland already generated buzz after posting a mysterious message shortly after.

Dealing with some issues
In a cryptic post on Twitter, Strickland announced that Schaub’s podcast might be “the last one” he’ll do as he’s “not stable enough” to talk to people at the moment.
“Just finished a Brendon Schaub podcast,” Strickland wrote (h/t Alex Behunin). “I think this might be the last one I do… I’m not stable enough to speak.. after I awhile I start advocating for puppy murder. No further request…”

An optimistic Sean
While it’s hard to decipher the meaning behind Strickland’s post, one thing certain at this point is that prior to the Schaub podcast, “Tarzan” was optimistic about his next fight. Last month, Strickland even thanked Cannonier for being “a classy motherf**ker” because “The Killa Gorilla” had no issues with the bout getting pushed back due to his hand injury.
As it stands, Strickland is now the No. 7 middleweight contender and Cannonier is at No. 2. Regardless of his current state of mind, “Tarzan” needs to win if he wants to become a top-five fighter once again.
