Sean Strickland shares an old memory of his destroyed bike and is in the mood to buy a new one.
In December 2018, Strickland, unfortunately, found himself hitting a van while going at 45 miles per hour. According to the fighter, it wasn’t his fault and the van pulled out in front of him suddenly and he had nowhere to go. The aftermath of the accident was quite horrific as he fell unconscious at the spot and woke up in the hospital bed.
Strickland basically ripped his knee area after that crash and had to go through several procedures in order to get his knee repaired. “I remember waking up going into the surgery after my bike accident. I started crying coz when you hear surgeons saying, hey you were in a motorcycle accident I just seeing like my dreams just drifting away. That was one of the hardest things,” Strickland explained his injury to MMA fighting.
