Sean Strickland faced and defeated Uriah Hall at the main event of UFC Vegas 33, Sean was presented with a big opportunity to put his name out on the division, and he made the most out of this chance.
Sean dominated Hall throughout the five rounds, and he displayed world-class, there was one thing that was missing from his game at UFC Vegas 33 and Strickland pointed it out during their post-fight conference, he said, “I need to learn how to hit harder. I kind of hit like a pansy. I kind of sucked. They’re like, ‘You know you won the middleweight striking record.’ I’m like, ‘What does that mean? That means I can’t hit that hard.’”
Strickland landed his first big victory in the division, and this will most likely put him in the top ten. Hall was looking to make his possible title run with this victory and he asked for someone ranked higher than him, but now that he has lost this seems rather unlikely.
“I know like two fighters in the division,” Sean Strickland isn’t familiar with anyone in his division
Strickland has the perfect fighter mentality, he says he doesn’t know what’s going to happen next, he just wants to make some money, “It is what it is,” Strickland said. “I’ve been training for so long. There’s always going to be another killer. It is what it is. I’ll fight somebody again in the next few months. I might win. I might get knocked out. I just like making money.”
“I know like two fighters in the division,” Strickland said. “Brad Tavares because we train together and Israel Adesanya. I don’t really watch fights. I just like to do it.”
