When it came to his words, Sean Strickland had no problem pulling the trigger at the UFC Vegas 66 media day

The top middleweight contender would tackle a number of different topics. Strickland covered all of the bases, talking about his thoughts on politics, guns and even went on to roast MMA reporters in classic Strickland-fashion. In the midst of all of the chaos, Israel Adesanya’s name was also caught in the crossfire. 

Strickland Reacts To Adesanya Being Arrested

Strickland was asked his opinion regarding the former middleweight champion’s arrest at JFK airport for possession of brass knuckles. Strickland continued to have his field day with this question. 

“He is another f*cking foreigner. If he was a real man, it would’ve been a gun,” Strickland said of Adesanya’s arrest. You probably can’t even own knives in his f*cking country. I don’t know, dude. Maybe, I mean, he just got knocked out [by Alex Pereira]. There was some CTE acting up.”

‘America, You Disappoint Me In A Lot Of Aspects”

After taking shots at Adesanya, Strickland would begin a short rant about brass knuckles being illegal in most states. 

“The fact that brass knuckles are illegal in most states is f*cking akin to English being p*ssies,” Strickland added. I don’t understand. I could put a f*cking gun on my hip right now, and that’s fine, but I can’t carry a f*cking brass knuckle. America, you disappoint me in a lot of aspects, America. But whatever. I rather get hit with brass knuckles then shot. F*cking carry the brass knuckles, dude. F*ck.”

Strickland Didn’t Bring His Gun To Media Day

Later in his interview, Strickland would reveal that he left his gun at home and that he felt ‘naked’ without it. 

“I didn’t bring my gun today,” Strickland continued. “I was going to, but then I thought, I gotta go to the photos after this, and if my gun falls out, I don’t know how the UFC’s gonna feel about that. So I feel really f*cking naked right now. I feel like a fucking jihadi could just come running through this door and f*cking kill us all. You motherf*ckers, you English f*cks don’t have guns. So, like, here I am, the American, it’s always like, ‘Hey, I have a gun on me all the time. I’m the one that’s supposed to step up and now I don’t got my fucking gun’.

“Listen, we delivered freedom to Afghanistan, Iraq. Now we’re doing a f*cking [favor to] Ukraine, you lucky motherf*ckers. How many billions of dollars went to that? You grateful bastards.”
