“You’re a coward bro” – Sean Strickland calls out Belal Muhammad for “propagating war” and “divisive” ideologies on social media 

1 years ago By Sports Desk

It is no secret that Sean Strickland and Belal Muhammad share a contemptuous relationship. Strickland recently recalled engaging in a war of words with Muhammad on the Israel-Palestine issue and explained why he despised the UFC welterweight. 

‘Tarzan’ recently appeared as a guest on The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) podcast and discussed various topics with Rogan. During their conversation, the two men touched upon the subject of why Muhammad and Strickland disliked each other. The 32-year-old American explained that they once clashed over his opinions on how Palestine should stop fighting and seek peace with Israel for a better future. 

In a recent edition of the JRE MMA Show (#143), Sean Strickland claimed that he hated Belal Muhammad’s virtue-signaling behavior regarding Palestine’s issues with Israel. ‘Tarzan’ then lambasted ‘Remember The Name’ for spreading enmity and said:

“Palestine would be way better if they threw out Hamas and went to Israel saying, ‘Hey, let’s make this shit better.’… But then you have someone like Belal Muhammad, who lives in Miami and barely ever goes to Palestine… Propagating war instead of bringing the olive branch… You’re a coward bro. You sit here in America and say divisive sh*t on your couch with your Twitter thumbs.”

Brendan Schaub reacts to Sean Strickland dominantly beating Abus Magomedov at UFC Vegas 76

Former UFC heavyweight fighter Brendan Schaub recently weighed in on Sean Strickland beating Abus Magomedov at UFC Vegas 76 and praised ‘Tarzan’ for his incredible performance. 

Although some fans criticized Strickland for agreeing to fight a newcomer in the promotion, others suggested that ‘Tarzan’ may face difficulties against the larger and more powerful Dagestani fighter. However, the 32-year-old American proved his doubters wrong by putting on a striking clinic to secure a second-round TKO stoppage. 

In a recent episode of The Schaub Show, Brendan Schaub opened up about the No.7 ranked middleweight’s masterful performance and how impressed he was with Strickland He said:

“He melted this dude and on paper, there’s a reason why Strickland was the favorite, but on paper, you look at Magomedov, the way he fights, his skill level… He’s a bigger dude than Sean, good wrestling, good skill set…Thought it would maybe go five rounds and Strickland would edge it out maybe… Just his pressure and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Dagestani mentally break like that, he just beat the s*** out of this kid.”

In the aftermath, Sean Strickland angled for a fight against middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and called for a title shot. However, with a title eliminator between Robert Whittaker and Dricus du Plessis scheduled for UFC 290 this weekend, it seems ‘Tarzan’ might have to wait longer for his shot at the belt.
