Mid-ranker Sean Strickland was a wild man on the mic during Thursday’s UFC 276 press conference.
Strickland is set to battle Alex Pereira in the main card of the event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The warrior is known for his rough, unfiltered personality. And before the press started, Strickland told his followers on social media that he was “afraid” that he might get a “Gina Carano’d” (cancelled) because of a number of things he is capable of saying.
So during the press conference, Strickland was asked if anyone would recommend filtering his speech.
“Dude, the UFC was above me from the start,” Strickland said.
Then Strickland stood up and pointed to the audience.
“I just wanted to say something,” Strickland continued. “This is my first press conference. You guys are a bunch of evil bastards. I hear the way you talk. I want to go down there and punch you all in the face! God, you guys are mean.
“Yeah, I need to calm down.”
Then Strickland pointed to an individual in the crowd. “You’re wearing the red hat, you’re an asshole, man. The way you are talking to Jared [Cannonier]. Of that man [going] Go down there and take a shortcut. But, you are a funny guy. “
Strickland says he will start doing his nails like Adesanya if he beats Pereira
Strickland is ready to have the ability to fight for the title if he beats Pereira, who has two wins against the current UFC middleweight Israel Adesanya in kickboxing, including KO. Adesanya will be looking to secure her 185-pound strap against Cannonier in the main event of the night.
“Alex is a big, scary Brazilian, I think we can all admit that,” Strickland said.
However, Strickland said that after beating Pereira, “you’ll see I’m a completely different guy.”
Then, snapping a clear photo of Adesanya, who arrived at the press conference with her nails done, Strickland said: “I’m going to start painting my nails, acting like a lady. I will wear sunglasses inside. You know what I’m saying? It’s gonna be different, man.
“I’ll go get my clothes. I’ll get me a nice car. I’m going to trade in my 2018 Nissan Frontier for a Porsche. Just f****** wait. I will leave you all behind. I’m going to be the best champion you’ve ever seen. Let’s go!”
Then Strickland said, “I just wanted to say, let’s go, Brandon!”
Strickland & Adesanya Back to NSFW – & – Forth
Strickland was asked who was the best striker on stage. “I would say me,” Strickland said, and then pointed at Pereira, “but I mean the man who slept that man (Strickland then pointed to Adesanya).
“Next to me, probably Alex. I mean what is it, 2-0 against Izzy? Izzy, what is it? 2-0? “
Strickland has sparked a bout of fire again, and you can watch it below via the embedded Twitter video:
“Did you watch the whole game,” Adesanya asked.
Strickland admits he hasn’t, and “The Last Stylebender” cuts in: “Exactly. Do your f****** job next time. “
“Oh, man,” Strickland said. “I drove the champion crazy with his frozen watches and his gay little watch. Oh no.
“I’m just racing. Izzy is a barbarian, man.”
Adesanya then joked that he had “smashed” Strickland “on a** like my b****” before stepping onto the stage. “And that is true,” The Last Stylebender continued.
“Your P*rnhub is just cartoons, man,” Strickland retorted. “No man who likes to watch cartoons will beat me. Calm.”
“Dude, trust me,” Adesanya replied. “I will tell you what. If you win this match, when we fight, I’ll knock you down and dance TikTok over your grave. “
“Oh, look at this grown man** on F****** TikTok,” replied Sean Strickland. “Maybe that’s the problem, man. We don’t want this guy as a champion.”
“Let’s do something about it then,” Adesanya said.
Strickland then said he was going out with Adesanya and The Last Stylebender again said he hit Strickland in the back. “Listen, man,” Strickland said. “You are about to break a nail. Calm.”
“I will break your face,” Adesanya replied.
Strickland then urged Pereira to “get Adesanya” and The Last Stylebender told Strickland to focus on the Brazilian.
“Izzy is a tough guy,” Strickland said. “He is a good guy. I don’t judge him addicted to cartoons. I’m not going to be that guy.”
“It’s called hentai,” Adesanya interrupted.
The back and forth ended after The Last Stylebender told both Pereira and Strickland to focus on each other, not him. “Hey, Izzy,” Strickland said. “Why don’t you tell me what not to do.
“What should I do? Take a nap?”
