UFC Fight Night 216: Jared Cannonier Vs Sean Strickland Press Conference



The upcoming UFC press conference should be pretty fun, as Sean Strickland is known for controversial posts and underestimated trash-talking skills. His Instagram account was banned two times in the past. But Jared Cannonier can troll his opponent with style too, this should be pretty much a great intro into another UFC fight night Las Vegas. Look at the UFC on ESPN+ 74 full fight card here!

Pre-Fight Statements

In the interview with The Schmo, Sean Strickland offered a very interesting response when asked about the plans for the upcoming combat. As expected, he didn’t talk much about the match.

“I am f*ckin’ hungry dude, I had like f*ckin’ 500 calories a day. Man you’ll get manly over there running his f*ckin’ mouth. Sorry, there’s kids around, there’s a kids’ class going on, I’m gonna get kicked out of the gym. This guy’s over here laughing bro, go watch your kid grapple, get out of here. Continue.”

Schmo tried to ask Strickland about the game plan and mindset for the upcoming combat, but Sean is one of the funniest guys for a reason.

“I haven’t really watched much of his (Cannonier) fights, what should I do?”, then he continued.

“He didn’t name himself Killa Gorilla, that’s f*cked up but he’s not like Carrie Curious George or something that might be better you know Killer Curious George we got a Killa Gorilla (Jared’s nickname), f*ck that!”

UFC Fight Night 216 Media Day Highlights

You can take a look at the greatest moments by clicking on this link. Now let's analyze them, one by one.

Main And Co-Main

Jared Cannonier says “if Sean Strickland trash talks in the cage then I am not doing my job”. As expected, Sean Strickland didn't talk much about the upcoming fight, he rather chose to compare UFC fighters to porn stars in vulgar media day interview. Strickland is one of the funniest guys for a reason, but a real nightmare for journalists, ask him a question and he'll start talking about different topic and insulting random people. 🙂

Arman Tsarukyan believes he's the only guy who can beat Islam Makhachev, the current champion at 155. On the other hand, his opponent Damir Ismagulov plans to use Tsarukyan as “trampoline” to big names. This fight's definitively going to be fun, the winner's popularity and rating will skyrocket.

The Rest Of The Card

Amir Albazi didn't talk much about upcoming Alessandro Costa fight, and rather chose to question Alex Perez combat being rebooked after withdrawal. On the other hand, the Brazilian Alessandro is stoked to get top-10 ranked Amir Albazi in his Octagon debut.

Alex Caceres sounds open to power slap move, says damage no worse than MMA. Respectful Julian Erosa sees Alex Caceres matchup as another potential chance to shine.

Drew Dober sounded a bit furious and disappointed at UFC Fight Night 216 media day. The heavy-handed southpaw says “the UFC will never let me fight Paddy Pimblett”. As well as you know, Bobby Green's USADA scandal rocked him to the bone, but he'll still be fighting on this card. In the presser, Bobby Green “broke down crying” after USADA failure, but denied cheating. Green claimed he was innocent!

Cody Brundage says Dustin Jacoby gave guidance to beat Michal Oleksiejczuk. On the other hand, left-handed bomber Michal Oleksiejczuk plans to stop takedowns and destroy Cody Brundage. Michal's takedown defense is questionable, so let's see whether he'll fulfill his promise.

Manel Kape is fighting David Dvorak in the prelims, and he'll have to fish for an early knockout cause the fighter from Czech Republic is known for great cardio and tactical aspect of the game. Yet, the Portuguese says that “stiff guy David Dvorak doesn't have same weapons as me”.

Stay tuned to NYFights for the latest set of UFC news, we’ve got you covered! The fighters were pretty much solid with words, but let’s hope they’ll back up their trash talk inside the Octagon! Here is how you can watch the upcoming UFC on ESPN+ 74 fight card!
