This is for something he could have kept private. Normally he does say some funny shot but this is rough tbh,” said one user. Others pointed out that Shalie Lipp could have had a great career as Amanda Nunes and Chris Cyborg lost fights in their early days.

She was still an amateur, heck Nunes and Cyborg both lost their first pro fights, you can’t judge a career based on the beginning,” posted one user. While Strickland is known for being insensitive and talking without any filter, fans felt this was rough. According to people, he should have kept it to himself instead of going on a rant.
