Sean Strickland was quick to apologize for his UFC Vegas 47 performance despite the fact he put on a dominant display to beat top contender Jack Hermansson in the main event of the evening.

Strickland jabbed his opponent’s face off for the vast majority of the 25-minute fight and ultimately walked away with the decision victory.

During his post-fight interview with Michael Bisping, Strickland was eager to say sorry after being involved in what he believed was a dull fight.

“I fought like a pussy you can say it! I’m sorry guys,” Strickland said before ‘The Count’ even got his first question out.

“I was being a pansy. I should’ve stayed in the pocked and thrown, like I did at the end. Maybe I let the pressure get to me. Again, dude, I’m sorry. I was kind of fighting like a b*tch right there – excuse me.

“I think I just let the win bonus get the best of me,” Strickland added. I fought like a chump that fight. I should’ve stayed in the pocket and thrown more but lesson learned, it won’t happen again.
