Streaking UFC middleweight challenger, Sean Strickland has unleashed a scathing tirade toward former division champion, Luke Rockhold, calling the Californian a “c*nt” who “deserves to go to sleep permanently“.
Strickland has hit the headlines constantly over the course of the last number of weeks, claiming that it would be a fantasy of his to kill an opponent of his in the Octagon following his headlining victory over Uriah Hall.
The surging striker also claimed prior to the booking of his fight with Rockhold that he would take a misdemeanour charge from law enforcement for fighting the former Octagon gold holder in a parking lot, before the UFC paired the two together for a UFC 268 clash on November 5. at Madison Square Garden.
Appearing on The MMA Hour recently with Ariel Helwani, Rockhold responded to those claims from Strickland, himself claiming that he would end up in jail if they clashed outside the Octagon, after questioning his aforenoted fantasy of killing an opponent.
“Other than that, him (Strickland) saying that he wants to kill people in the ring,” Rockhold explained. “Like, ‘It would be cool if I killed a guy.’ What the f*ck are you talking about, dude? Those are the people that need to die themselves. Then you want to talk about coming in the parking lot — coming after me. I didn’t say anything really about you but what did he say? Something about a misdemeanour and sh*t? Motherf*cker, you come at me, you touch me in the parking lot I’ll be the one in jail. I promise you that. You’ll be the one, people will have to question if you’re alive.“
Himself featuring during a recent interview with The Schmo, Strickland, who had scored victories his last five consecutive Octagon walks, claimed that Rockhold deserves to die, calling him a “c*nt“.
“You know, man, Luke (Rockhold) is a f*cking c*nt and he deserves to go to sleep, permanently,” Strickland said. “But, I mean he’s a great fighter he was a champion for a reason. At the end of the day, he could say whatever he wants but he was the champion. He was the champion, right?“
When asked where the developing bad blood between the two stems from, Strickland claimed Rockhold was a “piece of sh*t” and an “arrogant f*ck“.
“I’m a pretty respectful guy and I kind of gave him like the benefit of the doubt,” Strickland explained. “You know, he was a champion. And he was just a f*cking c*nt dude, like every time this f*cking guy opens his mouth, he’s just an arrogant f*ck. He’s the kind of dude that, when he’s f*cking, when he’s f*cking he makes sure there’s a mirror just so he can watch himself f*ck, dude. Guys a pice of sh*t.“
