Israel Adesanya Vs. Sean Strickland Won’t Happen

Sean Strickland has revealed that a fight with Israel Adesanya for the latter’s UFC middleweight title won’t happen. 

Strickland had been linked with Adesanya after Dricus du Plessis was ruled out due to a reported foot problem in the aftermath of his victory over Robert Whittaker.

Although that may have been the case, Strickland admitted that he would only fight Adesanya if the economics made sense.

And yet, it appears that there is not enough momentum behind the fight to make it happen.


“I think people miss understand about fighting top level guys. It’s not fun, everything has to be perfect, hard to land shots, one mistake and it’s over. Fighting guys your better than from a pure sociopathic perspective is where the fun happens. You can enjoy it and be creative.”

“I mean I’m a grown ass man. I’d fight him right after my last fight if you pay me. I don’t think the ufc wants it soooo burgers for me.

“I will say it is wild they are having a card like that and don’t have a headline 6 weeks out. Someone at the UFC really dropped the ball on this… I offered. Best I could do. Maybe we can just have a parking lot event after for the aussies,” Strickland
