“I mean, Israel’s just a crafty motherf—ker,” Strickland told Helen Yee ahead of his bout with Jack Hermansson at UFC Fight Night 200 (h/t Harvey Leonard of MMA News). “Like, don’t get me wrong, we all know he does steroids, and that probably helps his performance. We all saw him fight with the titty that hung down. I mean, have you ever seen a man fight int he UFC with gyno from weed? I mean, look at Nate Diaz; if that as the case, Nate Diaz would have tits down too is knees. Get out of here with this.”

The pair previously faced each other at UFC 243 where Israel won the title from Robert after knocking him out in the second round.
“So, anyways, back to him and Whittaker. Izzy is a great striker; he comes from a steroid background of kickboxing,” he added. “I think he’s gonna starch Whittaker, cause he is a great fighter.”
