Sean Strickland is calling for James Krause to lose his gym if betting allegations are true. 

It has been a weird couple of weeks for fans of the UFC. A couple of lines have been crossed and rules have been blurred. Stemming from a fight back in November betting on UFC events has been banned in several parts of Canada and the UFC has placed bans within the organization that prohibits fighters from gambling on the sport. At the center of all this seems to be former fighter and current coach James Krause. 

Krause was been suspended from the UFC and will not be allowed to coach any active fighter on the roster due to accusations of possible insider knowledge having swayed bets. There is an ongoing investigation but some fighters are fairly angry about the situation. One of which is Sean Strickland.

Sean Strickland thinks James Krause should lose his gym if found guilty in the betting scandal 

Sean Strickland is an outspoken guy. Although he admits to not knowing Krause, he took the time to chime in about the ongoing scandal. He spoke to MMA Junkie about this and more. 

“I don’t know what the f-ck happened with Krause, I don’t even f-ckin’ know Krause. But, if there is any fight throwing bullsh-t; f-ck Krause. The guy should never be back allowed in the UFC and they should close down his gym,” he said h/t Yahoo Sports. “Now, if it’s all bullsh-t and it’s just some guys being a–holes, then, you know, move on, let the guy have a life. But if what they’re saying is true, if he was throwing fights and changing fights then give that guy the boot, he don’t belong here.”

Krause is the owner and coach of Glory MMA, a gym that trains several UFC fighters. Now none of them may train with Krause if they wish to compete inside the Octagon. There are still a lot of moving parts and Krause has not officially been found guilty of any wrongdoing at this time. Strickland is tying this situation to another situation within the UFC that involved the USADA. 

Recently it was revealed that Conor McGregor had removed himself from the USADA testing pool in order to give himself all the opportunities available to heal from injury. It has been alluded to that any fighter may now use this method to possibly take banned substances while out of the pool. Strickland thinks all this controversy is ‘shady.’

“There’s so much shady sh-t going on,” Strickland said. “Look at the USADA ‘exempt pool.’ There’s so much shady sh-t going on. But it is what it is. That’s f-cking life. If there’s a way to cheat the system, guys are going to do it.”

Strickland will be back in the Octagon on December 17 when he takes on Jared Cannonier in the main event of UFC on ESPN+ 74.
