Video - UFC PR team meets to discuss Sean Strickland's unsavory comments ahead of Adesanya fight

Sean Strickland is keeping the UFC PR department busy.

Despite being a former middleweight world champion, the first thing that comes to a fan’s mind when they’re asked about Strickland is his mouth—more specifically what comes out of it.

Over the last couple of years, ‘Tarzan’ has seen his star rise significantly, though little of it has to do with his talent. Make no mistake, he is talented, as evidenced by his lights-out performance against Israel Adesanya and his solid showing at UFC 302 against Paulo Costa.

Instead, Strickland often sees himself either praised or loathed by fans due to his often controversial and sometimes downright vile commentaries.

Recently, a clip from Fight Inc: Inside the UFC episode two has been making the rounds online, showing a behind-the-scenes look at a UFC PR meeting to discuss some of Sean Strickland’s more unsavory comments ahead of his UFC 293 title tilt with ‘The Last Stylebender’ in September.
