Challenging a professional MMA fighter to one-on-one combat is never a wise decision. However, not everyone possesses the common sense to avoid such a dangerous situation. Recently, Dale Brown from Detroit Urban Survival Training did not think twice before challenging Sean Strickland, a UFC middleweight fighter. To make matters worse, Strickland accepted the challenge. This comes after Sean Strickland recently won his last fight against Nassourdine Imavov at UFC Vegas 67. What’s more, he even came in as a last-minute replacement for Kelvin Gastelum, who had sustained a severe facial injury. Despite the short notice, Strickland emerged victorious and earned a substantial purse for his efforts.

It’s clear that Strickland is not a UFC fighter to be trifled with. He demonstrated his skill and determination by winning a professional fight on short notice.
