Sean Strickland tells Joe Rogan what stopped him from killing a man – “That’s a hard case to beat” 

1 years ago By Sports Desk

UFC middleweight Sean Strickland is undoubtedly among the most outspoken fighters in mixed martial arts and is well-known for boldly expressing his unfiltered opinions on sensitive social issues. ‘Tarzan’ recently opened up about his dark past, revealing that he almost took a man’s life once. 

In a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience MMA Show (#143), Strickland spoke to Rogan about various topics ranging from martial arts to politics. During their conversation, ‘Tarzan’ told the podcaster about an incident when he had a gun to a man’s head but refrained from pulling the trigger after realizing how hard proving his innocence in court would be. 

The 32-year-old narrated a story about getting into an altercation with an armed man at his house party after damaging his wall. However, Strickland managed to snatch the gun away and turn it on the other man. He explained what made him not pull the trigger, saying:

“Right as I’m about to pull the trigger, his girlfriend jumps on top of him crying… The problem was, that’s a hard case to beat. You have the gun, he’s defenseless. That’s a hard case to beat.”

Sean Strickland goes off on MMA manager Ali Abdelaziz for his unethical actions before Abus Magomedov fight 

Sean Strickland recently went off on Dominance MMA Management founder Ali Abdelaziz and viciously slandered the Egyptian for spying on him before the Abus Magomedov fight. 

Last weekend, Strickland went up against Magomedov at UFC Vegas 76 in a middleweight bout. ‘Tarzan’ opened the fight strong and dominated his opponent with his striking to secure an impressive second-round TKO victory. The win also earned the 32-year-old a Performance of the Night bonus. 

In the same JRE episode with Joe Rogan, Sean Strickland explained how Ali Abdelaziz attempted to hamper his chances against the Dagestani fighter by snooping on him while he sparred in the gym. In an expletive-laden rant, Strickland claimed that managers shouldn’t be allowed into MMA gyms and said:

“So this f**king c*nt, Ali… He comes to the gym, he watches me spar with Marvin Vettori… I don’t give a f**k, Marvin’s a friend, I’m trying to help him. And f**king three weeks later you pull out this f**king guy to fight me? And then you start betting that he’s going to beat me… You f**king rat. You watch me spar, and you pull this f**king guy out of your hat… I don’t think managers should be in the gym.”
