Sean Strickland, the former UFC middleweight champion, recently shared his opinions regarding the controversy surrounding Khamzat Chimaev. Strickland accused Chimaev of scamming people with his ‘SMASH’ meme coin. Let’s delve into the details of this heated exchange.

Chimaev faced criticism this week for promoting a cryptocurrency meme coin called ‘SMASH’ on his social media accounts. The significant push from the 30-year-old caused the crypto coin’s value to rise, but a huge decline the next day led some to assume they had been duped out of their money.

Sean Strickland’s Accusation

Sean Strickland didn’t mince words when he took to social media to express his thoughts. In a string of posts, he wrote:

“I’ve been offered a ton of money to do this same exact thing… Crazy man, you’re rich and still try to scam your fans.”

Strickland emphasized the lack of integrity in such actions and urged fans not to let this controversy vanish in a news cycle. His final verdict was clear:

“That was 100% to scam his fans.”

Khamzat Chimaev’s Manager Responds

Khamzat Chimaev’s manager, Majdi Shammas, accepted accountability for the situation. He explained that he had been approached by a group claiming to be fans of Chimaev, who wanted to record a video promoting the ‘SMASH’ coin launch. Shammas admitted that he hadn’t conducted thorough research and apologized to both Chimaev and the fans.

Sean Strickland’s Previous Stance

Interestingly, Sean Strickland had previously declined a fight against Khamzat Chimaev. When asked about the possibility of fighting in Saudi Arabia, Strickland cited personal reasons for not flying there:

“Nah, I wouldn’t go to Saudi Arabia. Hang out with a bunch of burqas, I’m good man… Something about burqas and no bikinis and sh*t doesn’t sound like my place.”

The SMASH coin controversy highlights the risks associated with celebrity endorsements in the crypto world. While Chimaev’s manager has taken responsibility, Strickland’s strong words serve as a reminder that integrity matters, even in the fast-paced world of cryptocurrencies.
