Jon Anik, the renowned UFC commentator, has thrown his support behind Sean Strickland’s bid for a middleweight title shot. After losing his middleweight title to Dricus Du Plessis earlier this year, Strickland rebounded by defeating Paulo Costa in UFC 302’s co-main event. Following the victory, Strickland demanded a title shot, and Anik agrees with him.

Anik highlights Strickland’s consistent commitment to the UFC, emphasizing that he has stepped up for the company on numerous occasions. Strickland’s recent fight with Costa drew criticism from fans, but Anik defends him, stating that Strickland’s skills should take precedence over personality. Anik firmly believes that Strickland’s next fight should indeed be for the championship.

Jon Anik Believes Nobody Stepped Up For UFC As Sean Strickland did

In a recent interview on SiriusXM’s MMA Today, Anik praised Strickland for choosing to fight again rather than waiting for an opportunity to come to him. Anik believes that Strickland would be well within his rights to stick to his guns and take time off until he secures a title fight.

“I thought he fought great,” Anik told MMA on Sirius XM. “I thought he could have waited for a championship opportunity and didn’t. I mean, has anyone stepped up for the UFC more than Sean Strickland?

“The main event against Nassourdine Imavov, the main event against Abus Magomedov – both of those had circumstances in which he was stepping up for the UFC, and those came on the back end of him putting his No. 4 ranking on the line against Alex Pereira when no one in the top 10 would’ve fought him at UFC 276. So if anyone deserves to sit right now for 12 months after essentially dominating Paulo Costa, it’s Sean Strickland

Speculation is rife about Strickland’s next opponent, with many hoping it will be for the championship title. Anik’s endorsement further underscores Strickland’s contributions to the UFC and his deserving shot at the title.

Strickland’s journey continues, and fight fans eagerly await news of his next challenge. Will he get the opportunity to fight for the championship? Only time will tell.
