UFC middleweight contender Sean Strickland makes his return to the Octagon against striking sensation Uriah Hall in the UFC Vegas 33 main event this Sat. night (July 31, 2021) on ESPN and ESPN+ from inside APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fortunately for “Prime Time,” Strickland won’t be armed.
“For those who were wondering how I almost killed a man, I’m at this gathering and I was probably running my mouth being an idiot,” Strickland said (transcribed by Adam Martin). “The next thing I know this guy puts a shotgun to my head. So my dumb ass punches him in the face, he falls down, I take the gun and at that moment I contemplated if I shoot this motherfucker in the head is there any legal defense to it? Sadly, I looked around and there were fucking witnesses so I thought if I killed this man I would have went to prison. So I unload the gun, I give it back to him and I walk away.”
Strickland, 30, recently threatened to hunt down his “coward” haters and assault them in front of their children after video surfaced of “Tarzan” blowing a gasket inside the gym (watch it). But Strickland also insists he’s “one of the happiest human beings you’ll ever meet.”
So long as there are witnesses present.
“The moral of the story is, man, you almost fucking died, and every day I regret the fact there were witnesses and I could have fucking shot you,” Strickland continued. “But I also forgive you. Again you guys, I would have fucking smoked him and enjoyed every moment of watching his head splatter. But there’s no legal defense on shooting an unarmed man on his fucking knees begging for his life. I wish I could have, but I would have gone to prison. And you guys, I’m not angry, I’m one of the happiest human beings you’ll ever meet. Every day I wake up and I’m super grateful for life. You can shoot someone in the head and not be angry. If anything, it could be enjoyable.”
