Sean Strickland Fires Back at Luke Rockhold, Promises to “Smack” Former Champ
By FCF Staff
After taking some verbal jabs from Luke Rockhold, Sean Strickland has fired back at the former middleweight champ in an expletive-filled, video.
Recently Rockhold revealed that he is open to fighting Strickland, after passing on the opportunity in previous months. While discussing why he’s willing to face Strickland now, Rockhold argued that the fighter had been a “nobody”, and he also insulted the outspoken middleweight.
Strickland is coming off a one-sided, decision win over Uriah Hall last weekend at UFC Vegas 33.
Since then, Strickland posted a video statement, in which he warned Rockhold about what repercussions be headed his way (quotes MMA Junkie) (warning: the video below contains graphic language).
“All these things, they might be true,” Strickland said in a video on Instagram. “But I’ll tell you one thing: Me and you might never fight. I don’t care about fighting in the cage for ego reasons. I like to get paid at something I enjoy. But I’ll tell you f*cking one thing: You just can’t live in a radius of me and run your f*cking mouth and not expect for me to hit you in the face. We don’t need to fight, that’s fine. But I’m going to run into you at RVCA.
“I’m going to see you in the parking lot, and I’m going to walk up to you and smack you in the f*cking face, and you seem like the kind of p*ssy that runs his f*cking mouth and gets hit and then calls the cops. But you’re such a smug, cocky motherf*cker that I would probably take a misdemeanor charge just to smack you and watch your f*cking head bounce off the ground. So again, we don’t gotta fight. But don’t f*cking run your mouth because I’m going to see you again, and I’m going to smack you in the f*cking face.”
Strickland and Rockhold are expected to fight at the UFC’s November 6 card in New York City.
