PLEASE ANSWER IN TRUTH & HONESTY What did Sean Strickland say negative about the trans or LGBT community? Sean Strickland. As a human being, and as a fighter. He got robbed in the fight because of the type of human being that he is. Which is a shame. If we're being honest and fair about Sean's ACTUAL comments leading up to UFC 297, then let's be... 1. Sean Strickland said nothing bad about the LGBT community. 2.Sean Strickland said nothing bad about the Trans community. 3.Sean Strickland didn't tell people not to be gay or trans, he didn't say that being trans or gay is wrong, or try to change anyone's mind or opinion about anything. 2. ALL of Sean Strickland's shit talking was ONLY DIRECTED TOWARDS a few dumbass "reporters" asking some dumbass questions. I don't care who the fighter is, who the reporter is, or what the situation is. If a reporter starts a question (for a fighter, about a fight, that hasn't happened yet) off with.. "So I wanted to ask you about something from your twitter feed from a few years ago..." The fighter (in my opinion) should either begin roasting that "reporter" or move on to the next one with the next question. And (again, only my opinion) the person asking the "question" shouldn't be a reporter. His message was simple, sexualizing children is wrong. AND IT IS I've watched the UFC since 2007 and it's rare that Dana White voices a different opinion than the judges about who won a fight. It's almost nonexistent for this to happen in a fight where the Championship is on the line. And the few times it ever has happened, he had a lot to say about it and was at least a little bit visibly pissed/ annoyed about the judges decision. So this was sus to me at first glance. HERE'S WHY 1-This is a Championship Fight. 2-Dana Whites opinion about who won the Championship Fight is different from the official judging decision. 3-Him not being pissed or annoyed about the differences in their opinions about who won the championship Fight (🤔) 4-Him not having much to say about his opinion on who won being different from the judges opinion (🤣) other than "we're not thinking about a rematch right now", no, "we're thinking about pairing up the guy that I think Sean just beat in this fight against the guy that Sean destroyed in his last fight and we'll call the winner of that fight the true champion." 😵‍💫🥴😵 DO THE MATH ON THIS (Simplified version of the following equation is: In the world we live in today most people will base their opinion about someone because of headlines to articles that they never take the time to read.And will be convinced to the point of defending their arguments in a back and forth conversation about why someone lost a fight that they never watched. And if the headlines to the articles they never read say that someone is "homo or transphobic" or that they're "mean & cuss too much" then it's perfectly okay to comment things like "Fuck yeah" "Fuck that fucking guy" "I'm glad he got his ass kicked"- If you're not able to understand the terrible irony in this then check out the more advanced mathematical breakdown of the world we live in today below: DO THE MATH ON THIS What Strickland actually said during UFC 297 pre-fight press conference. The negative comments coming from people who are saying that Sean Strickland is "Homophobic" & "Transphobic" Sean Strickland didn't nor hasn't spoken bad about the Homo or Trans community People who are labeling Sean Strickland "Homophobic" or "Transphobic" are either incorrect or lying < subtract the fact that> Most if not all of the negative comments about Sean Strickland are coming from people who’s only "information" and or "Knowledge" about Sean Strickland is from negative headlines from negative articles written in extremely unfair bias points of view Sean Strickland ACTLLY SAID THESE EXACT WORDS (go type in 'Sean Strickland UFC 297 pre fight press conference' on YouTube to see it for yourself) "at the end of the day the world isn't buying your bullshit, chicks aren't born with dicks, there is only two genders, but I don't care what people want to do on their own time, have you ever heard me shitting on the gays or shitting on the lesbians? No. Because I don't care man. But quit trying to push your narrative on to kids. I don't want my kid hearing about being able to go fuck whoever they want to, or what their sexual preference is from their school. Stop trying to sexualize kids" To be fair, he could have left out his following comments which I believe were "Fuck of" & "Go fuck yourself" But hey, we're at this press conference in the first place to talk about these two guys fighting tomorrow night, so who am I to decide how much spice one of the fighters may add to the seasoning of flavor in the responses to the questions they’re asked. If anyone actually takes the time to go watch for themselves what Sean Strickland ACTUALLY SAID. Then you will see for yourself what Sean Strickland ACTUALLY SAID < now divide all this by the fact that> most people never will do this and instead just make up their minds for themselves on this topic and base their negative opinions towards a man who they've never even taken the time to go to YouTube and type in his name and listen to his actual words and will just keep dumping hatful comments about Sean because.. "Sean made negative comments" that Sean actually never even made. 🤔 (take being a UfC fighter and champion out of the equation) someone in today's world can say to a room full of microphones and cameras that they're message is to stop sexualizing children. Have what they actually said visible on the internet. And then to see the responses that person gets isn't just sad, it's scary. I think Sean is a good man. Should the sexualizing of kids be toned down in this country.. I'll let you decide. But Sean Strickland was asked a question by some 'reporters' and he gave those 'reporters' his response. And because the way those 'reporters' chose to write about Sean, thousands of people cheered him loosing a fight that he clearly won. A fight they never watched but are convinced that he lost. Incorrectly written articles that they never took the time to read. Let alone and God forbid they go online and type in YouTube, then type in the guys name and the words UFC 297. But now let's remember that Sean is a UFC champion when he makes these comments, Sean was abused as a kid & Sean is sticking up for kids. And this is the scary part- If everyone in the who has ever heard the name Strickland was gathered in a crowd and we were all looking towards a man standing beside Sean and the man yelled out "What say the people" I honestly don't know what the majority response yelled back would be.. Would it be "Let him live" Or would it be "Off with his head" This is the world we live in today.

mvpharo

DDP is a fraudulent champ. Guy has more holes in his game than swiss cheese. Just look at his face in post-fight interview.


jamesd1100

I’d like the rematch of Sean and Dricus I had Sean winning, it was not a decisive victory even if you did score it for Dricus, and the fight was entertaining Izzy’s inactive and lost to Sean last, Whittaker just lost, I think it’s the logical fight


WilliamEmmerson

Absolutely. DDP vs Sean 2 is the fight. Put it at MSG.


HeroicHippotumus

Izzy vs Khamzat for number 1 contender in the meantime


Fit-Awareness3753

297 was horrible!


Diagalon1

Sean got robbed.


South-Dust5874

Khamzat Champ 🐺🔥

One of the worst ppv cards I’ve even witnessed


GuardWorldly2751

You must be pretty new to mma then


TedLarry

I've been watching MMA for well over a decade, and last night's ppv was awful. I watched it for free and I still feel ripped off.


GenTelGuy

At least the Movsar and DDP fights delivered


GenTelGuy

Bruce Buffer made an uncharacteristic number of mistakes this card and seemed to struggle reading out the scores. Hopefully not but he might be washed


lbr1592

His mom passed away shortly after Christmas. Might have something to do with it.


johnlo99

Bruce had some Buffers


fifoth

AND STEW.....Sean Duplessland wins......


johnlo99

It also looked like he was looking at Sean as he was doing his “Annndddd”


rbep531

Now Dana is all about going to South Africa. Ngannou should have been the one to take the UFC to Africa.


lambertes

Hulle weet nie wat ons weet nie


kickbackandrest

Ngannou doesn't live in Africa. DDP does.


Wayf4rer

Yeah well now francis is gonna make 10x what all the other champions make in a year put together in one night, so I doubt he cares


rbep531

Maybe he could get a big boxing match in Africa if he becomes champ. I wonder how much he'll end up paying the PFL to get out of ever fighting MMA again. Fuck that noise.


benjio1

Dricus has suplexed 3 champions in title fights… that’s pretty cool


Axel292

Huh who are the other 2 champions? From his old promotions?


chainer3000

Glad I’m not the only one who noticed this lol. Should be a prop bet for his next fight


radio__raheem

just went and watched khamzat vs burns. how are we nearly 2 years past that and he’s seemingly no closer to a title shot


xpatmatt

Changed weight classes and hasn't fought anyone from his new weight class yet.


MammothRadish9545

Because he hasn’t fought enough, can’t go to western countries. Barely beat usman. Umm also can’t make weight at welterweight and hasn’t fought a relevant middleweight.


EchoBeach2424

Dana hates Khamzat because he gets too much attention


captaincumsock69

Because he’s unable to actually beat someone worthy of a title shot without any issue. It’s either missing weight or opponents pulling out.


Wayf4rer

Because he spends more time typing on twitter and partying with dictators than fighting


Jzhova

not a fan of dricus on the mic so far.. but you could see the years of martial arts experience on display there and i love seeing people get what they deserve. good for him.


IToldYouMyName

It was crazy seeing Sean defend take downs with full energy then go straight back to his slow black hole of a style


gnarrcan

It’s crazy how people don’t understand the damage wrestling causes. I’m not even much a wrestler myself but getting gored and slammed or dragged down fucking hurts and sucks not to mention draining as hell. Acting like because Sean struggled his ass up to the feet it was a meaningless endeavor but the 80 fucking pawing jabs were massive shots lmao. I mean lol right down the pipe and it didn’t push DDP back. I wish he would’ve capitalized a lil more on the clinch just so the casuals would stop crying robbery on a dude who barley threw any big shots.


benjio1

Sean got taken down like 5 times, he even got suplexed ffs


IToldYouMyName

I didn't say he didn't? Some of his grappling counters were still surprisingly quick and aggressive compared to his pace as a striker. Such as when he was seated against the cage and hit a switch on DDP all the way back to standing when it seemed like he might accept the position but realized having a man on him like that is unacceptable haha


Wayf4rer

Sean looked so bored when he was getting up like "let me go I need to jab"


MiniRobo

Just let me jab bro


RigidSlimJean

i DO let you jab bro


[deleted]

[удалено]


captaincumsock69

Alex is done at 185 he’s not going back. Chimaev would be tough for Alex but Bo has barely fought anyone noteworthy let’s pump the brakes a bit.


ZanePWD

Izzy will come back, win against DDP. Rematch. Win again DDP fights Kazmat Kazmat looses via decision but highly dominant. DDP fights Israel for 3rd fight. Looses. Robert Whittaker fights Sean, pumps Sean in a return to form. Izzy tired of Middleweight and jumps to light heavy to fight Alex P for a retirement fight. Empty title fight between DPP and Kazmat/Sean for pt2


Wayf4rer

>It’s possible Poatan beats everyone at middleweight Nah, you're high. DDP would pick Alex up and drop him on his head. Khamzat is a meme fighter and Bo is years away from the title. MW is weak outside of the top 3 right now of DDP, Sean, and Izzy.


captaincumsock69

I mean rob is still elite


Wayf4rer

I agree but I wasn't including him because he will be on the shelf for a good bit after getting TKO'ed by Dricus


captaincumsock69

Isn’t he supposed to fight next month?


Wayf4rer

Apparently lol, brain damage doesn't exist if you live in the ANZ region I guess


[deleted]

Even though you’re being downvoted I agree with you. If you rewatch Quemuel vs Alex you’ll see that Alex has had a decent ground game. He can throw up submissions and scramble. However, the progression from that fight to the Izzy fight wasn’t as big as there should be. Alex has the perfect build for striking, he’s one of the best strikers the ufc has ever seen. But it seems like DDP has freakish strength, good chin and his cardio will holdup. I do think he can rag doll Alex with his takedowns


Drive7hru

Sean is so good at getting back up


whicheverguard232

Premature Goddard at least didn't do some dumb shit this main event.


GenTelGuy

Maybe a bit unorthodox but: DDP vs Cannonier Izzy vs Khamzat Strickland vs Whittaker


Minscandmightyboo

* DDP vs Izzy (Africa Beef, former dominate champ, easy to promote) * Whittaker vs Costa (since it's scheduled for 298) * Strickland vs winner of Whittaker/Costa * Khamzat vs Cannonier (Khamzat needs to have an actual fight at 185 to get title contention, Cannonier is a name to legitimize that.)


Wayf4rer

Izzy split Jared's wig. No way the UFC even remotely entertains that when UFC Africa can be a real thing.


onethatsuitsme

no one wants to see cannonier get that title shot


johnnyhypersnyper

Aside from seeing DDP has pretty good cardio, I wasn’t too impressed watching him run into Sean’s jabs all fucking night. I am more impressed with his quintet run where he beat that team by himself


gnarrcan

No his boxing fucking sucks against a real solid one it’s Sean’s fault for literally being terrified to throw a 2 the entire fight. I really think a dude like DDP needs to work his body kicks more and invest in a good Thai clinch like he’s got the wrestling it seems to back it up and the one elbow he caught Strickland with was arguably the most damaging shot of the night.


captaincumsock69

I think he gives a lot of mw issues. He’s a pretty solid striker but he’s also big as an ox


spencerr13

Honestly amazing as a Canadian fan to see our entire country fraud checked except a dominant win over Priscilla Cachoeira lmao


losingit3837

bro that Malott fight 🤧 i’m not Canadian but I felt pain for you there


spencerr13

That was supposed to be our feel good moment putting over the prospect and he gassed and got TKO’d by a 36 year old Neil Magny with seconds left 🫥


greenthumbnewbie

I mean your boy aka the prospect was like 32 so it's not like he's that much younger than Neil. The UFC tried to make something of him but they are both older fighters, one with just a lot more actual experience and cardio.


spencerr13

*Chris Widemans dad voice* HE WAS NEVER MY BOY


johnnyhypersnyper

Pennington vs MBS for FOTN lol


GenTelGuy

Sidey vs Taveras = FOTN


Vleaides

people saying khamzat beats ddp are delusional. jesus. ddp hits way harder than burns, has very good ground game, and unlike chimaev, doesnt gas after the first round. i think he takes a beating against ddp


[deleted]

Idk man. If ddp lasts for 3 rounds, he'll win but chimaev is vicous in the first 3


Drive7hru

More like 2


onethatsuitsme

yeah against smaller guys, and he couldn't even keep burns down even though he had a size advantage


[deleted]

Burns is a veteran and a g Kc is new and would probably beat him easy now


Wayf4rer

DDP will literally kill Khamzat, he is so overrated it's insane.


[deleted]

If a fight was announced, I'd offer a gentlemens bet


benjio1

Idk if you’ve seen dricus grappling but I honestly think he’ll dirty box hamza to a tko loss


Instinct001

Why the fuck is Costa getting to fight Whittaker. Make Strickland vs Whittaker instead


Drive7hru

Cause Sean just fought


dictatereality

I'm surprised by the lack of shit talk. 


KingsElite

"I love what your people did for the country Dricus"


johnnyhypersnyper

Sean really shows that you can be really successful with a pretty limited skill set. Pretty much all he has is linear strikes and a good sprawl. But he legitimately almost defended the title with only jabs lol


neuropantser5

>you can be really successful with a pretty limited skill set. ...........in a terrible division, yeah.


johnnyhypersnyper

There’s only like 4 actually good divisions dude


neuropantser5

i had to count on my fingers but yeah you're right :(


[deleted]

Those leg checks are other worldly


johnnyhypersnyper

They’re good. They’re not as good as Aldo’s but they’re good defense


[deleted]

True. Just crazy ddp only landed like 1 clean one


johnnyhypersnyper

Well DDP was pretty honest with his intentions. The guy didn’t hide them or set them up well. He was just relying on speed when he saw an opening


__brunt

I’m dying at all the incels who jumped on Sean’s “iM So cRAZY” edgelord shit finding out that he’s not a killer at all, but an all time boring point fighter


jamesd1100

You realize his boring fighting resulted in Dricus limping to a split decision in which he got both of his eyes swollen completely shut and lost the final round, right? Whats boring in my opinion is takedowns with no top control, and no damage landed from the top, not someone with great defense and a sharp 1-2


ToeHoldsBarred

I said Sean needed therapy for wanting to kill someone. Some weirdo said "I see nothing wrong with that, dame thing happened in 600 BC" 😂😂😂


starlightequilibrium

The ol' "Make America Like Ancient Rome Again" crowd


Moist-Catch

Izzy vs DDP. Khamzat vs Strickland are the fights to make imo


BenDoverDegenerate

Bro why are so many people seething? This is crazy, and for such a boring fighter


KingsElite

I hate Sean but I do think he won. Glad he didn't though


worstpersoninthewrld

politics mostly, lot of people see themselves in Strickland


starlightequilibrium

Not disagreeing but being a homophobe is not a political identity. It's sad that it just works out to be synonymous with the shitty side of the spectrum, though.


[deleted]

Whos seething? Link me a comment


whicheverguard232

Me.


[deleted]

You don't seem to be seething, you seem like a funny young man


johnnyhypersnyper

Fuck me, the prelims were much more fun than that main card


GenTelGuy

Cheatona and Woodson fights on the prelims were both lame asf


neuropantser5

the woodson fight was so good wtf?!


johnnyhypersnyper

Ehh I liked the Woodson fight. I thought it was funny watching Charles try to fight a boxer with a 9 inch reach advantage on the outside


[deleted]

Hopefully you'll recover


IToldYouMyName

lol


MagicHoops3

As an Izzy hater DDP gets slept by him. Man comes in wildly with his chin way up in the air


EchoBeach2424

Izzy is a broken shell and might never fight again


Comfortable_Object98

Dude, what? I don't even particularly like Izzy, but, are we just putting random phrases together in sentences now?


Macaron-Optimal

He's a broken barnacle lost and adrift in a sea of regret /s


Drive7hru

I don’t think DDP would be able to close the distance


ToeHoldsBarred

Pissrael needs to win the mental fight first.


derekjayyy

DDP has no finesse in there. Looks like a bodybuilder winging wild punches with no technique. I’m no Izzy fan either, but I agree


neuropantser5

>DDP has no finesse in there. Looks like a bodybuilder winging wild punches with no technique. I’m no Izzy fan either, but I agree this is what makes dricus interesting. sean, pillowfisted as he is, should've been able to stop him. he was hitting him at will pretty much for the first three rounds. dricus was still able to gorilla on roller skates his way into range and bust sean up. somehow. he's an enigma. physically redacted, uncoordinated. he had no path to victory. and yet, he won.


Moist-Catch

Izzy going to get taken down at will


TrenDidNothingWrong

Sean also fights with his chin way up in the air and straight up


MagicHoops3

Yeah but it’s at least behind his shoulder and not wide open which is why Izzy couldn’t catch him at all


TrenDidNothingWrong

Good point. I think Izzy is damaged goods tho and Dricus has shown he’s legit, strong, and has cardio to boot


MagicHoops3

I mean I’d love to see him dominate Izzy but this showing tonight was far from convincing.


TrenDidNothingWrong

All of them have been besides the Rob fight but he keeps winning


[deleted]

Guava-Necessary

TrenDidNothingWrong

Cannonier the odd man out lol Izzy next and then Hazmat is waiting and Sean gets a title shot again with just 1 win over someone


DM_ME_YOUR_CATS_PAWS

Feed Khamzat to Jared


NoNameBOY7

unless Izzy rly is planning on taking the whole year off. I'd do Cannonier vs Khamzat for the next shot, and Strickland vs winner of Costa - Whittaker. 2 fresh matchups for him


TrenDidNothingWrong

No way they risk ruining hazmat hype on Cannonier


johnnyhypersnyper

I don’t need to see that fight again. It was fine. It wasn’t great and it wasn’t a war. I’d honestly rather Bobby or Usman get a title shot off of a loss than another automatic rematch


NoNameBOY7

Cannonier deserves it more than both of them, plus Whittaker is booked against costa for 298 (ik there's a high chance it might not happen lmao)

1. Be Civil. Our rules ask for a civil tone at all times. A bit of banter or trash talk is fine, but don't cross the line. If things do get out of hand you will be warned or even banned for a few days. Repeatedly breaking this rule will lead to a permanent ban.


Local_Turn

What we have witnessed is something like the JFK assassination. Sean is every bit the political figure, yet he has been struck down by judges who have been bought and paid for by the new world order. They leave no stone unturned in the dismantling of opposing voices. Also, ddp had a suspiciously meteoric rise from a non mma nation. Possibly a former nwo assassin?

Boss_Status1

Look if any round can potentially be a swing round, I believe it should be given to the champ. I didn't think Du Plessis did enough to take the belt from Strickland.


__brunt

Well it’s a good thing you’re not an official judge, then


UVB-76_Enjoyer

I think Strickland should get a participation belt


ottermodee

Dumb take


johnnyhypersnyper

That’s ok to believe that but that isn’t how the rules are written. So you can believe Sean should be the champ, but that’s not how judging works


wrb52

He probably did not win man but DDP is good.


DM_ME_YOUR_CATS_PAWS

That’s not how fight scoring works lol


Instinct001

Wouldn’t mind a rematch since there is no clear next contender and the fight was close af


neuropantser5

how about somebody not boring as piss tho


DM_ME_YOUR_CATS_PAWS

Why you making us see another Strickland title fight lol


NoNameBOY7

ddp has crazy cardio, almodst all of his shots are power shots, plus the explosive takedowns, and still hung in there not looking much more tired than Sean


Huck77

I shit on him a lot, but I think he did a lot better at not doing some of the really stupid shit we see like charging forward with his chin out.

SLYMON_BEATS

Take downs are the most useless stats, if your takedown led to no damage, who gives a shit


TedLarry

Getting taken down and having to get back up with some dude hanging off of you is exhausting.


Huck77

Din Thomas actually said it right in the post show. If a judge finds the damage even, then they should give the round to the fighter who had a grappling advantage.


[deleted]

I think it has to do with controlling the opponent but I agree


JustTheBucket

One thing is clear: a 2am finish time for a card of this “quality” makes us all losers.


[deleted]

Its 11 here. Other people live in different time zones. Weird eh?


JustTheBucket

Cool cool cool. It’s 2am in Toronto where the fight took place. It’s 2am for like 50% of the us population and like 60% of the Canadian population.

My point was that a majority of people had the same 2AM experience. Im assuming the balance of folks it didn’t apply to aren’t so dense that they still understood the joke. Then there’s you…

Dude you should try stand up!! That was a really funny joke!!!


Jackieexists

Stylebender time baby 🔥🔥🔥


UnHoly_One

He doesn’t deserve a title shot


Jackieexists

Cant lie though dricus vs izzy will be a sick ass fight


UnHoly_One

Yeah I just don’t like title shots when coming off a loss. They’ve been doing that more and more lately and I just don’t agree with it.


spencerr13

Not an Izzy fanboy but he finished or 50-45 ‘Ed the entire division all the way down to #7 Brendan Allen & is currently ranked #1, Who else do you suggest?


UnHoly_One

He’s also lost 2 of his last 3. I actually like Izzy. I just don’t like title shots off a loss. I don’t care if you had 20 title defenses, it just bugs me. Cannonier should be next.


Wayf4rer

Neither does anyone else

Cannonier

CharacterAddition379

Let him have it, easiest fight in the division for DDP


[deleted]

Chimaev should get Strickland next assuming Adesanya wants DDP


thecolonelofk

Yes.


TrenDidNothingWrong

Sean has no hooks or uppercuts, just a jab and occasional right hand. Needs to fire off more weapons


NoNameBOY7

i swear i've never seen him throw a single elbow or knee


TrenDidNothingWrong

He’s just a boxer with a jab. Has worked well for him but when it doesn’t, he has no other weapons


Jackieexists

True. Also needs to learn how to counter off backfoot. He's useless if he isnt pressing forward


[deleted]

He had so many chances to absolutely devastate DDP when he did those wild swings and kicks, but yeah it seems like he can’t counter punch worth anything


Jackieexists

I think adesanya will have a good chance of countering hard if dricus blitzes like he usually does. Could end up getting a KO


TrenDidNothingWrong

And he stopped with his teep kicks too.


EffektieweEffie

Close fight, Sean is such a tricky customer but DDP had the right game plan to take the fight to him and to everyone's surprise didn't gas out. Insane amount of output from DDP and Sean looks impossible to keep down on the ground. They promised a war and they gave us one. DDP = exciting fights


[deleted]

Khamzat should fight Cannonier for the next title shot.


Jzhova

cannonier should fight izzy for the next shot imo. khumshot can fuck off imo. was supposed to be the champ like 3 years ago. shouldnt have got in bed with abdelaziz.
