Chael Sonnen guesses Sean Strickland’s next fight

UFC fighter Chael Sonnen tried to guess whom Sean Strickland would fight next at the UFC.


Controversial Strickland surprised the MMA world last year when he beat Israel Adesanya and took the latter’s UFC middleweight belt thereby.

However, Strickland’s rule was full of controversies hinged on his oral attacks on two other UFC superstars.

One of them was Ian Machado Garry. He called Garry’s wife Layla a succubus, and tried to discourage Garry from staying married to her, among other things.

A surprise awaited fans earlier this year when Strickland entered the octagon to defend his title for the first time against Dricus Du Plessis. It was a disaster for Strickland.

Now dethroned from his throne in less than six months, Strickland awaits a rematch with Du Plessis, but there are opinions on whom he might fight next.

Chael Sonnen was speaking at the Good Guy/Bad Guy show on ESPN MMA’s YouTube channel when he said the following:

‘When you ask what’s next for Sean Strickland… I have two guesses, and they’re very different.

‘One is that Sean Strickland is used as a backup fighter for either of these two major matches that we’re speaking about (Du Plessis vs. Adesanya, Whittaker vs. Chimaev).

‘The second, Daniel, there is a reason Bo Nickal is getting a push, there is a reason that Bo Nickal is getting the shine at UFC 300.

‘I don’t know what it is, but my guess is at some point, he’s gonna have to play with one of the big names. That big name that’s sitting available is gonna be Sean Strickland.’

The uncrowned king Sean Strickland posted recently on X, saying that his dethronement was not earned but a political punishment.

‘The UFC fans want me and Dricus to settle it,’ he wrote. ‘Dricus wants to settle it. We all know I fought in a dirty liberal country who fucked me. Dana knows it. The UFC knows it.
