Sean Strickland continued to troll Machine Gun Kelly after their in-person altercation.
Earlier this week, Dana White and company held their sixth Power Slap event in Las Vegas, Nevada. The controversial sport once again attracted high-profile stars, as the venue featured Tom Brady, Travis Scott, Charles Barkley and more.
Former UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland was also in attendance and found another way to stir up controversy. Strickland met well-known rapper Machine Gun Kelly, who is in a long-term relationship with Megan Fox, and called him a “nutjob.”
Strickland followed up on Twitter by calling out “MGK,” including this message about his relationship with Fox:
“Dude, I just discovered Megan… Has this happened since Transformers?!” I’m done…goodnight…fuck…fuck…. I finished… “
Strickland recently continued to troll “MGK” by saying this on Twitter:
“Someone said ‘Be careful, MGK doesn’t like it when you make fun of Megan.’ What does that mean? Should I stick wood chips into hollow points? Should I wear a crossbow? Buy a wooden stake? Is this how I become the new blade?!?!”
What’s next for Sean Strickland in the Octagon?
In September 2023, Sean Strickland shocked the world by dethroning Israel Adesanya from his UFC middleweight title. Unfortunately for Strickland, his title reign was short-lived, as he suffered a split decision loss to Dricus du Plessis four months later.
Strickland vs. Du Plessis was decided by a razor-thin margin, with many fans believing the middleweight throne should not have changed hands. Therefore, the UFC could consider an instant rematch depending on the availability of top 185-pound contenders.
If the UFC goes in a different direction, Strickland could find himself facing various other opponents, including Paulo Costa or Robert Whittaker, who are scheduled to fight on February 17 in the co-main event of UFC 298.
