Sean Strickland Doesn’t Believe Robert Whittaker Deserves Another Title Shot

Despite Robert Whittaker’s impressive victory at UFC Fight Night Saudi Arabia, not everyone feels he is worthy of another middleweight title shot, including former champion Sean Strickland.

Whittaker (26-7) systematically dismantled Ikram Aliskerov (15-2) in the first round of their main event contest in Riyadh, ultimately finishing things off with a well place uppercut. This now puts “The Reaper” on a 2-fight win streak, with victories in 3 of his last 4 appearances.

Regardless of the success Whittaker has found at this later stage of his career, Sean Strickland feels as though he has had his chance to become champion, and that time has passed.

“The thought that whittaker gets a title shot before me is fucking wild..” Strickland tweeted. “Bro you’re 0-3……With a stoppage lol. I beat both those cunts lol…..Do rankings matter?! Do the right thing UFC..”
