MMA fighters are a group of people you really don’t want to mess with, but Sean Stricklandmay just be the one you don’t want to mess with the most.
The current UFC Middleweight Champion found himself in the middle of a domestic dispute the other night when a drunk man who allegedly was seen beating a woman fled the scene, crashed his car, and wound up trying to hide in Strickland’s drive way.
Now, there’s a number of reasons why I say Sean Strickland’s house may just be the worst place to try and hide while fleeing a crime.
For starters, the man is an absolute savage of a fighter. He won his belt by upsetting one of the biggest favorites in UFC history when he scored a unanimous decision victory over Israel Adesanya back in September and has a number of impressive knockouts on his resume.
He became a fighter to overcome a traumatic childhood of domestic violence in his house and aggressive neo-Nazi views pushed on him by his father, with whom he had many violent altercations until he turned 18 and he and his mother moved out on their own.
Safe to say, there’s a fair bit of rage that still simmers beneath the surface.
Sean is also not in the slightest afraid to share his opinions, one of which is his love for firearms. He’s posted many videos where you can see the arsenal he keeps at his house and others showing him training with them, so yeah, add that into the equation and you’re starting to see why it’s a bad, bad idea to trespass at his house.
I don’t think this person knew whose house it was when they tried to hide there, but Sean posted two videos which show how he handled the situation and gave some back story on what allegedly went down.
According to Sean, he checked his Ring doorbell camera at night and noticed a man crouching down between the cars parked in his driveway. Sean immediately thought the man was attempting to steal them and walked out to greet him with a pistol in hand.
Honestly, the way he walked looked like he’d been waiting for a long, long time to do something like this…
He followed this up with a post a day later and gave a bit more information on the incident.
“Here’s what I know….
The guy was drunk stomping out a girl, a security guard seen it, he jumped in his car and drove off.
Security followed him, hit a curb, completely shredded his tire, drove on the rim for awhile then jumped out and tried to hide at my house. I initially thought he was stealing my car… He was arrested.”
