Sean Strickland wants to enter the match with Israel Adesanya without any pressure. There is no doubt that Strickland is going to give his all and show what he is capable of, but it's not winning the belt that makes him happy.
Sean is aware of the importance of this match. The name Israel Adesanya is well known to him. It is certainly difficult to fight against such an opponent who has been a prominent fighter on the world stage for years. Despite this, Strickland is determined to give it his best and give Adesanya a tough fight.
He knows that this match will be a great opportunity for him to prove himself. “It’s all b* man,” Strickland told reporters, as quoted by MMAJUNKIEUSATODAY! “It’s all f b*. I’m in it to get a check, and it means so much to me to fight.
It means so much to me, but it’s a f piece of metal. I’m in it for the paycheck. I love doing this s*. Having a piece of metal around my waist doesn’t define me. It doesn’t make me who I am, it doesn’t make me f happy.
It would be nice, but at the end of the day, it’s just a fight. It’s just fun”.

Sean will try to exploit some of his weaknesses and try to take the win. It will be difficult, but not impossible! “You fight a guy like that, f little twinkle toes, running around, dancing around, it’s hard to shoot,” Strickland said.
“You’re going to have to go nose-to-nose, d to d and make it a war. Cut off the ring, you know? Take some jabs, take some punches. Get some blood, give a little bit to the gods”.
