MMA Fighter Sean Strickland says he fights for free speech, not the "Chinese checkmark"

Yesterday, during a pre-fight press conference, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight kingpin, Sean Strickland, made remarks about his motivations.

Famous for his fighting and his profanity-laden candor, Strickland said, "Where did you ever see a UFC Champion, stick up for you f***ing guys? I f***ing do it. I do it!"

He continued, "I am not chasing the Chinese checkmark of Nike. I don't give a f*** about that. I care about you guys. I care about you guys being free. I care about you guys having freedom of speech. I give a f*** about you guys, and I'll tell you what—you guys are f***ing awesome and I cannot wait for me and this man to go to war for you f***ing guys."

Strickland is set to defend his new crown opposite South African, Dricus Du Plessis, this Saturday (Jan. 20, 2024) at UFC 297 inside Scotiabank Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
