Off the back of his UFC Vegas 33 headlining victory over dynamic striker, Uriah ‘Prime Time’ Hall last Saturday, surging middleweight puncher, Sean ‘Tarzan’ Strickland has claimed that nothing would make him happier than killing an opponent in the Octagon.
Strickland, a 14-fight veteran under the UFC’s banner extended his winning run to five straight fights at the UFC Apex facility over the weekend, snapping Hall’s four-fight run in the process via a quite impressive unanimous decision victory.
Implementing a stiff and constant jab from the opening exchange till the final klaxon, Strickland comfortably bested Hall over the course of the five round affair to take home his third consecutive unanimous decision (50-44, 50-45, and 49-46) victory.
The North Carolina native, who is outspoken, to say the least, explained how his bravado and personality make him quite the most unattractive potential champion on the promotion’s books right now, claiming that he’s the last person the UFC would like to wrap gold around.
“I’m probably the last person they (the UFC) want as the champion,” Strickland told assembled media following UFC Vegas 33. “So, Sean (Strickland) what do you think about the UFC? I mean, it’s cool — they pay me well, it’s cool. I’m the last one they probably want to be a champion.“
Before the culmination of the post-event press conference, Strickland laid out a rather telling dream scenario; in which he kills someone inside the Octagon, encouraging those who may have a psychotic disposition to “own it“.
“If you like to f*cking hurt people, you’re in the right sport,” Strickland continued. “I would love nothing more than to kill somebody in the ring. Nothing more. It would make me super happy. I would own that sh*t, too. I don’t know if it would make me liable, I might have to say I’m sorry if the cops came, but I would own that sh*t. Own it. Be a psychopath, it’s f*cking fun“.
