Jared Cannonier on what he wants next
Recently, on Instagram, Jared Cannonier took the time to call out Sean Strickland for a rematch. “If you’re a true hand-to-hand combat fan like me and not in it for the (clown) *** actors and their theatrics, then you know this is the fight to make," Cannonier said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. "I beat the champ and got two checks to prove it.
He wasn’t walking me down screaming in my face either. Nobody does that to me. The only other MW to beat him has ascended. He fought him differently than he fought me as well. On top of that he said it himself that he 'fought like a *****' so here’s your chance to redeem your man card @strickland_mma_ let’s actually do the man dance brother.
P.S I was high as hell on that poster". It will be very interesting to see who Jared Cannonier ends up fighting next; it would be fair to expect him to show up one more time before the year ends.
