“Go F*ck Yourself, Did You Vote Trudeau”: UFC Champion Sean Strickland Unloads On A Canadian Reporter For Asking Him His Thoughts On The LGTBQ+ Community
UFC champ Sean Strickland tells a Canadian reporter “You’re part of the f*cking problem. You elected Justin Trudeau.”
He goes on to say “The world is saying no, there are two genders. I don’t want my kids being taught about who they can f*ck in school”

I am going to let the clip speak for itself. It is not a secret that UFC Champion Sean Strickland is a very opinionated human being. Anyone who follows the UFC knows his thoughts on Liberals, Democrats, the LGBTQ+ community, the trans community and women. Sean is a clown. No ifs ands or buts about it.
However, so is the CP reporter who asked the ‘gotcha’ question. I do not see the relevance of asking Sean’s opinions on this subject knowing full well what he was getting himself into. It’s hack journalism. It is the real-life version of performance tweeting. Sean took the bait because he truly does not give a shit about what anyone thinks and he has a platform to spew his thoughts.
I don’t expect better from Sean but I do expect better from journalists. You are at a UFC press conference, ask about the fight or his opponent. Do not do performance journalism to get a rise and viral clip. Congratulations, you got it. I want to know who the reporter was. It is not a good look for anyone in Canadian media. Be better.
Later in the conference, Sean doubled down about women’s MMA.
UFC champ Sean Strickland says he has no time for women's MMA.
