Currently 11th-ranked UFC middleweight fighter Sean Strickland will most likely end up in the Top 10 best middleweight fighters after the next ranking update. A win against eighth-placed Uriah Hall will bring him closer to the top of the category.
The 30-year-old nicknamed "Tarzan" took the opportunity in the main fight of the evening, and he was no less impressive in his media appearances before and after the fight. Strickland attracted a lot of attention with his interesting and humorous statements.
We have often had the opportunity to hear from Strickland that he really enjoys playing this sport and that he simply likes to fight. His love for money and earning the same is equally strong. "Tarzan" was a guest on ESPN after the fight against Hall, and how far he is ready to go for the money, he proved with a statement that he would also fight against the heavyweight champion.
"I would fight Francis Ngannou if the figure is good," Strickland said, and a commentator told him he was not sure. Sean made a quick statement: "He would certainly knock me out, but I would do it anyway (for good money)," Tarzan added.
Five wins in a row
By the way, Strickland has openly admitted that he’s not particularly sure what he would have been doing if he hadn’t become a UFC fighter. Specifically, he said he would probably "cook" meth or be in jail.
The 30-year-old fighter is currently on five wins in a row and is definitely enjoying the best days of his career. The media is paying more and more attention to him, a wider mass of fans has noticed him, and he is taking big steps towards the very top of the category.
Sean Strickland announced that he plans to take a short break and fight in a few months. It will be interesting to see who the UFC matchmakers will pair him with, and it is certain that he will try to use his verbal skills in the best possible way.
This has been a very good week for Sean Strickland. However, whoever his opponent is will not have an easy task, because Strickland looked like a person with too much self-confidence, and he enters every match relaxed, ready for any outcome.
This has brought him good results so far, and it is probably one of the main reasons for his success. The only question is whether he will continue with that
