MMA world is high on Khamzat Chimaev’s dominant run so far, and has already tipped him to become the next double-weight champion. The North Carolina native fighter is no different, and has called Khamzat “f**king crazy”.

In conversation with The Schmo detailing his future plans, Strickland made a bold prediction and said that Gilbert Burns might not be able to produce answers to any of Chimaev’s onslaughts. He said,

“I mean, [Khamzat Chimaev’s] just a massive welterweight dude and the guy’s, like, the guy’s crazy. Like he believes, like he believes in himself so much where I just, I don’t think, I don’t think [Gilbert Burns] has the tools. I mean, non-biased, yeah. I don’t, I think he should run through him.”

Hardly anyone with any knowledge about MMA has spoken contrastingly about Chimaev, and majority UFC fighters have forecasted him to dominate Burns.

‘Colby would have been calling 911’ – Sean Strickland uses the Will Smith and Chris Rock controversy at Oscars 2022 to mock Colby Covington

UFC middleweight Sean Strickland praised Chris Rock’s professionalism when Will Smith rushed to the stage to punch Chris Rock who poked fun at his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

He took the opportunity to poke fun at Colby Covington, who pressed charges on fellow rival Jorge Masvidal for assaulting him. He said, ‘Lmao!!!!!!!!! If that was @ColbyCovMMA he would of been on the phone calling 911 while trying to give Trump a hand job. Well played @chrisrock. You took that shit like a man… You should catch him in the parking lot lol’

Strickland even suggested that Chris Rock should not let the issue go and jokingly recommended for the issue to be resolved in the parking lot. Strickland further criticized Will Smith for his actions and said the liberal logic is the problem with the society today.

He said, ‘F..k Will smith, this mother gets on stage after smacking a man in the face and starts crying while the crowd cheers… The f..k backwards world are we living in?!?! Liberal logic, next time I smack a mother in anger I’m just gonna cry and talk about God.’
