Most fighters don’t share what goes down in a gym with the public, but Sean seems to think differently. Recently, a fan asked ‘Tarzan’ whether he had fought UFC icon, Tony Ferguson. Instead of keeping the answer short with just a yes or no, he shared a story of Raymond Daniel knocking out Tony.

Strickland tweeted, “Yeah, he’s a cunt lol! Raymond Daniel’s pulled a head kick once and Tony got mad about it because he didn’t throw it hard, so the next kick he knocked Tony out”

One fan further investigated and asked Sean if he would have survived that kick. To which the middleweight replied, “Na man, every time Raymond pulls a kick, I stop sparring and thank him lol”

Raymond Daniel is known for his flash moves and also is the current Bellator Kickboxing Welterweight Champion.
