Sean Strickland Nearly Hits Rapper Machine Gun Kelly - 'Is This Man The Devil?'

Sean Strickland was involved in an altercation with rapper Machine Gun Kelly.

The pair attended the Power Slap event at Durango Casino & Resort in Las Vegas. During this time, they crossed paths and had a verbal exchange. The following footage shows Strickland in a conversation with MGK. The former UFC Middleweight Champion referred to the rapper as ‘weird.’ Then, when Strickland walked away, the UFC fighter said, “I’m easy to find, vampire man.” Once the dust had settled down somewhat, this is what Strickland had to say.

Strickland On MGK

“I almost hit a vampire tonight… lol! They said his name is machine gun kelly..  How do you have a dope ass name and dress like a 13 goth south park character?!?” Strickland said 

“You guys what the f**k is going on………. Transformers Megan Fox is with that thing….. what the actual f**k has happened to the world?! What did I miss? Is she OK? Is this man the devil? @meganfox are you ok? Do you need assistance?” Strickland added

This is not the first time that Strickland has been involved in controversy. During the UFC 296 headlining event between Leon Edwards and Colby Covington, the pair sat near each other. Strickland then approached the South African and began punching him as security intervened to separate the pair. Strickland was also recently involved in lashing out at Jake Paul. The Problem Child called out Strickland for sparring with influencer Sneako, accusing him of bullying. Strickland responded by issuing a death threat, stating he could take his life if it was legal.

Strickland On Jake Paul

“Real talk… jokes aside.. Jake Paul is an utter f***ing joke….. You box small retired old mma fighters and you sell sugar water to kids.. If it were legal I’d take your f***ing life with a smile on my face. Is there any place on this earth [where] I can take this man’s life and walk?” Strickland revealed

“Actually Jake I’ll make you a better deal because money can’t buy happiness and you have plenty of it and youre still a cunt……. No cameras, me and you in a desert…. That would buy my happiness… No Instagram, no likes, no games…. Just you that’s what I want,” Strickland added 

When Dana White was asked about Strickland and MGK’s altercation, the UFC CEO was not surprised.

“You can’t bring Sean Strickland around any other human beings. You know what I mean? It has nothing to do with Machine Gun Kelly. It’s about humans,” White stated 

Strickland is no doubt one of the UFC’s most colorful characters. But following his loss to Du Plessis for the UFC Middleweight Title, the American needs to bounce back much stronger. The rematch with Du Plessis has not been signed, but there is a strong chance that it will happen if the South African cannot get a bout with Israel Adesanya.
