UFC middleweight Sean Strickland is worried he’s going to receive similar treatment to Gina Carano ahead of UFC 276 this week.

While he may be best known as a middleweight contender to many mixed martial arts fans, Sean Strickland also has a tendency to rub people the wrong way on social media. His antics, ranging from strange rants to being suspended by Twitter, have left many wondering whether he’s playing a character or if he’s genuinely speaking his mind.

Whatever the case may be, he’s drawing a lot of eyes to what he’s doing for better or worse – and after it was announced that he’d be taking part in the UFC 276 press conference, he had a word of warning for those watching.

“I’ve got some bad f***ing news. The UFC wants me as part of the press conference. And I’m a little f***ing scared, and I’ll tell you why I’m scared. Because I’m not talking to you social degenerates on Instagram, I’m talking to the overlords. ESPN, f***ing Walt Disney man. You know, and if I f*** up and if I say something wrong, I’m gonna get f***ing Gina Carano’d. And I don’t want that. So I really need to sit there, and just shut the f*** up. I might even bring headphones, and just like – loud music the whole time. So, I’m a little nervous you guys. I need to do the right thing and just shut the f*** up.”
