Strickland is a weirdo and after the latest rant, a clear scumbag of the highest degree…but, Strickland is good. Checked or blocked like 95% of the kicks and had DDP flailing around with haymakers for 4 rounds….but he didn’t attack enough in that 3rd round and he doesn’t have enough power to just knock him out.

Entertaining fight.

ddp did next to fukking nothing on the ground and that cut did more to slow sean down than anything else lol

but whatever. fukk both these guys and this card
that cut changed the momentum/favor in the other direction imo

duplessis doesn’t look very technically sound idk how he made it this far

sean threw a lot more sig strikes

someone remarked how strickland was ''enjoying being champ'' rather than ''trying to stay champ'', like how miesha tate did when she won the title

dude got the belt and thought it meant he kept it forever :mjlol:

Takedowns and visible damage lost him the fight

Cardio and sparring is cool, but he needs power and a sense of urgency
