While the highly anticipated middleweight championship clash between reigning champion Dricus du Plessis and No. 2-ranked contender Israel Adesanya is set to take place at UFC 305 on August 17 in Perth, Australia, Sean Strickland has voiced his displeasure with Adesanya receiving the title shot. Strickland, who has fought both du Plessis and Adesanya, believes that Adesanya’s path to the title shot is undeserved.

In a recent interview with James Lynch for Sportskeeda MMA, Sean Strickland expressed his frustration: “It’s a really weird f**king thing. You go on stage, you drop a couple N-bombs, challenge a guy to a racist chicken, and you get a title fight. I didn’t know that’s how it works, man. Don’t worry, I’ll get up there, and we’ll play racist chicken, Izzy. I got you.” Strickland is referring to Adesanya’s controversial use of racial slurs during a confrontation with du Plessis.

Despite his frustration, Sean Strickland offered a prediction for the upcoming fight. Acknowledging his competitive bout with du Plessis, he stated: “It’s kind of hard, cause you know, up until I got cut, I mean I wasn’t getting hit by him, you know, not being able to see out of my f**king eyes is hard, real hard. So, don’t know, man, I think it will be a close fight. But either way, that belt is coming back to Vegas.”

Strickland’s comments highlight the tension surrounding Adesanya’s title opportunity and add intrigue to the upcoming championship clash. As the MMA world eagerly awaits UFC 305, the stakes are high, and fans can expect an intense battle inside the octagon.

Sean Strickland rejects Robert Whittaker bout, demands a title shot next

Sean Strickland, the UFC’s number one ranked middleweight contender, has surprisingly rejected the idea of facing Robert Whittaker in a potential title eliminator bout. Fresh off a victory over Paulo Costa that solidified his top-contender status, Strickland believes he deserves a direct shot at the middleweight title currently held by Dricus du Plessis. This comes after calls emerged for a Strickland vs. Whittaker matchup following Whittaker’s dominant first-round knockout win over Ikram Aliskerov.

However, Strickland dismissed Whittaker as a worthy opponent, pointing to Whittaker’s recent losses to Adesanya and Du Plessis. Strickland maintains that he was unfairly defeated by Du Plessis at UFC 297 and believes his past victories over Adesanya warrant an immediate title shot.
