Sean Strickland Holding Out For Title Shot

Sean Strickland is coming off a decision win over Paulo Costa at UFC 302 back in June to cement himself as the No. 1 contender at middleweight.

Before the win over Costa, Strickland lost a controversial decision to Dricus Du Plessis to lose his middleweight title and because of that, he says he will be holding out for the title shot.

“Whittaker’s not next in line,” Strickland told James Lynch. “He fought a f*cking guy on a two-day notice. An unranked Dagi. He’s not next in line. I’m next in line. Whoever f*cking wins [the title fight], they’re f*cking fighting me. I beat Dricus, the world knows I’m next in line. The world knows it should be me f*cking fighting, but I’ll wait. I’m next in line. We’re bringing the belt back to Vegas.”
