Sean Strickland offers Joe Rogan his view of the Ukrainian president – “Zelensky is a piece of s**t”

10 months ago By Sports Desk

Sean Strickland is seemingly not a fan of Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. The UFC middleweight recently weighed in on the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian conflict and lambasted Zelensky for his undemocratic behavior and for “dooming” his country. 

For context, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, and the two nations have been involved in a serious armed conflict ever since. More than a year after the initial invasion, the war has shown no signs of ending anytime soon and has caused extensive loss of human life. 

In a recent appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience MMA Show (#143), Sean Strickland and Joe Rogan went deep on the Russo-Ukrainian war and discussed how complex the situation was. However, ‘Tarzan’ admitted that he despised Volodymyr Zelensky and asked how the masses viewed him as an upholder of democracy. He stated:

“Putin’s a piece of sh*t… By the way, Zelensky is a piece of sh*t. The president of Ukraine. He’s like throwing political parties in jail, he’s a piece of sh*t himself. I don’t know how we look at him as a democracy… You have doomed your country. Did you see the pictures of the cities? Just rubble. Everything’s f**ked… How do you come back from that as a country.”

Michael Bisping makes a case for a Sean Strickland vs. Israel Adesanya middleweight title fight 

Michael Bisping recently weighed in on Sean Strickland calling for a title shot against middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. ‘The Count’ claimed that ‘Tarzan’ has rightfully earned himself an opportunity to compete for the championship. 

Strickland recently faced Abus Magomedov at UFC Vegas 76 this past weekend and defeated the Dagestani fighter via second-round TKO. The 32-year-old then called for a title shot against ‘The Last Stylebender in his post-fight press conference. 

Strickland’s title shout was a much-debated topic among MMA fans considering that a pivotal title eliminator between top-ranked middleweights Robert Whittaker and Dricus du Plessis is booked for UFC 290 this weekend.

In a recent video uploaded to his YouTube channel, Bisping opined that if Robert Whittaker beats Dricus du Plessis, Sean Strickland should be getting the call-up to fight the middleweight champion. Citing Whittaker’s past two failed attempts to beat Adesanya, Bisping said:

“Sean Strickland got the job done… What a performance… He wants to fight…. He wants to fight Israel Adesanya. He feels that Israel Adesanya has fought everyone… He’s fought Robert Whittaker twice… He also said people don’t want to see Whittaker fight him again. I’ll be honest, after that one last night [win over Magomedov], I wouldn’t mind seeing it. And, of course, the trash talk in the lead-up to the fight would be phenomenal.”
