“I’m about to f****** beat your boyfriend”: UFC middleweight Sean Strickland brutally torched by reporter during recent interview

Sean Strickland is without a doubt one of the most entertaining fighter in the entire UFC roaster. That entertainment is not just limited inside the ring as Strickland with his quick-witted humor almost always makes sure to amuse everyone around him.

Similiar incident took place recently when Nina Marie Daniele, an Instagram influencer, asked Strickland about his previous analogy while mocking him for his loss against Alex Pereira at UFC 276. The 32-year-old is completely unfiltered in front of the mike as he once compared fighting to “having s*x with a woman.”

Trapping him in his own words, Nina further said “Does that mean that Alex f***ed you,” she asked. The question caught Strickland off aback, and he was only able to laugh it off. “Oh, this f****ing b**ch dude,” Strickland said. “That…you f***ing…I’m about to f***ing beat the f***ing s*** out of your boyfriend right now.” Strickland told the interviewer jokingly.

What’s next for Sean Strickland?

Sean Strickland currently ranked seventh in the middleweight division is unimpressively 1-2 in his last three octagon appearances. Strickland suffered a humiliating first round knockout defeat from the hands of Alex Pereira before losing a spilt decision against Jared Cannonier.

Although the 32-year-old is coming off a convincing victory against Nassourdine Imavov, he will need a lot more wins under his belt to get back into title contention.

As of now Strickland is scheduled to fight Abus Magomedov as the main event of UFC Fight Night 225 that will take place at the Apex on July 1st.

Many were a bit surprised by this match-up as Magomedov is not even ranked amongst the top-15 middleweights in the UFC whereas Strickland has elite level experience fighting former champions and title contenders like Pereira and Cannonier.

Strickland himself tried to explain the reason for him to take this less credited fight. “They said, ‘Sean, you’re going to be waiting for a long time for a top 6+ guy to open up or we will pay you a lot of money to fight this guy” sooo here we are,” Strickland tweeted. “I just bought a new motorcycle and I’d like another one… thinking a sport bike if anyone has a hook up?!?!”

Are you looking forward to ‘Tarzan’s next fight?
