Sean Strickland on the judges: They don’t know how to f***ing do their job

Sean Strickland showed his disappointment in his loss to Jared Cannonier. Strickland is firstly disappointed with the scoring. Cannonier showed after five rounds that he is a serious fighter, although Strickland was also dangerous in many moments.

“I’m a f*cking sore loser,” Strickland said on his Instagram. “Hat’s off to Jared, but you have judges that don’t know how to f*cking do their job. You actually look at the scorecard and you look at the significant strikes and you look at how many times I wobbled him.

You have experts in the field come up to me and say, ‘Yeah man, I don’t know how you lost that one. You landed way more. The scorecards should say it.’ Anyways, I’m going to shut the f*ck up now. Get off my soapbox”.

Jared Cannonier on the match

Jared Cannonier believes that the judges did not make a mistake. Jared had the feeling that he deserved to win this match. Cannonier entered the match full of confidence. This could be noticed during the entire match “I definitely thought I won at least three of the five rounds,” Cannonier told MMA Junkie.

“I felt confident that I won three out of five rounds, and on top of that I felt confident that I won the fight in general”. Jared did not forget to praise his opponent who was very dangerous. He knew who he was dealing with.

Both of them showed that they are quality fighters. “He’s good at what he does,” Cannonier said. “He’s really good at moving forward, putting that jab out there, and then getting out of the way.

If I gave him the look like, ‘Here I come.’ He was already aware, primed and getting ready his check hook or whatever combination he was going to throw, or just move away altogether”.
