Sean Strickland is a fighter on the rise in the UFC. He is currently the number 7 middleweight and on a five-fight win streak in the UFC. He is slated to return to action in February 2022 at UFC Fight Night 201, when he faces Jack Hermansson. Strickland is ranked a spot behind Hermansson and will look to win spectacularly and then target a title shot.

Strickland is known to not mince his words and always speak his mind. In a recent interview, the 14 fight UFC veteran talked about getting a title shot soon and accused Israel Adesanya of using PEDs. He said, “At least a title shot (by the end of the year). I’m one of the hardest training fighters in the UFC and I’ll do everything in my power to get to a title shot, and if it happens, let’s f*cking go, Izzy. I’m f*cking ready. Make sure to cycle off, though. I don’t want to f*cking bring you a bra if you don’t hit the right cycle.”

Strickland with his shot referred to Adesanya’s title defense at UFC 253 against Paulo Costa. During the whole fight week, Adesanya was questioned about the swelling on his right pectoral muscle that some claimed to be Gynecomastia. However, ‘The Last Stylebender’ dismissed such allegations against himself.

Sean Strickland wants the Israel Adesanya fight

Despite the allegations made by Strickland, he thinks Adesanya is a great fighter. In the interview, he said, “Izzy’s a great fighter – he comes from kickboxing–have you ever seen a fighter with gyno for any other reason than that?” Strickland said. “Besides him, have you ever seen a fighter in the UFC that smokes weed that gets gyno? Ever? You can’t, because it doesn’t f*cking happen unless you cycle wrong.”

“That’s a fact. We all know it. But regardless of the fact, Izzy’s a f*cking great fighter. We know that. That’s the fight I want.”

It will be interesting to see what Adesanya’s response will be to the accusations made against him. Strickland with a win over Hermansson can get very close to a title show, and if Adesanya is still the champ, the things are sure to get interesting.
