At Power Slap 6, Sean Strickland ran into musician Machine Gun Kelly, and to the surprise of many, started a beef with him. That’s right, the former middleweight champion doesn’t seem to need much when it comes to keeping someone in his crosshairs. Unfortunately for MGK, it looks like the end of the smack-talking didn’t end at the event.

A video of Strickland meeting the musician went viral where he seemingly bumps into the artist. In the clip, he quickly asks him to “dress like a f**king man,” and then he walks away without further incident or a physical scuffle. But since then, ‘Tarzan’ seems obsessed with the artist who is a partner to Megan Fox.

When Sean Strickland walked away from Machine Gun Kelly, he told the cameraman that he didn’t know who the artist was. He also sent a message to MGK telling him “I’m easy to find, vampire man.” Strickland has since then come up with more MGK content over the week.

He addressed the video in a couple of tweets later on. ‘Tarzan’ told his fans that he almost hit a “vampire” at the Power Slap event. The fighter trolled MGK for having an interesting name but dressing like a “13 goth south park character.” Things took another turn when Strickland found out Megan Fox was MGK’s partner.

“You guys what the f**k is going on………. Transformers Megan Fox is with that thing….. what the actual f**k has happened to the world?! . . .” He tweeted out, even tagging Fox in the same tweet. Now, in a recent post, MGK was showing off his new blackout tattoo and, of course, the former middleweight champ was quick to show up.

The tattoo is certainly massive and covers the upper half of the artist’s body. He captioned the post “for spiritual purposes only” to which Strickland responded with the vampire emoji. Clearly, the UFC star is not yet ready to let things go. A series of tweets coming from him later on say the same thing.

Sean Strickland continued his brutal flurry of tweets after bumping into MGK for a while. He found out about Fox and MGK’s relationship and tagged media organization TMZ in a tweet where he seemed befuddled about the couple’s relationship.

He also wondered if he could become the fictional character Blade by creating traditional vampire hunting tools such as a crossbow and a wooden stake. Clearly, the middleweight star is running with the vampire insult.

The last time we saw Strickland compete was when he lost his belt to Dricus Du Plessis at UFC 297. After a well-fought outright brutal war, he lost to a split decision and his belt was ceremoniously given to its new rightful owner, ‘Stillknocks’. When will we see Strickland fight next? Will it be with an artist or an MMA fighter? Clearly, ‘Tarzan’ might be happy with either.
