Sean Strickland initially agreed that Dricus Du Plessis righteously won the match, but a few hours after the fight, he went on social media to explain how the split decision win should have been in his favour.It may continue to be that way.

Sean Strickland recently declined the offer to fight Paulo Costa for financial reasons, as he wasn’t happy with the pay offered to him.

However, things took no time to flip around; Sean Strickland now claims to have agreed to fight Paulo Costa.

According to Paulo Costa, this fight is aimed to take place on 1st June for UFC 302. Jared Cannonier was Paulo Costa's second option. It will be interesting to see when the UFC makes the news official.
