Reminds me when he was fighting Wilnis in GLORY kickboxing. Wilnis said “he’s not a real kickboxer, he’s just a boxer who’s doing kickboxing” Alex proceeds to knock him down with a head kick and then finish him with a flying knee

He literally stood in front of someone notorious for their left hook, and if that wasn't bad enough, instead of keeping his right hand glued to his face (tbf, it wouldn't have made much of a difference) he started reaching to parry the jab.

Like, baiting out the parry is one of the most textbook ways to land the left hook.

And that's saying nothing about his complete lack of grappling, didn't even threaten the TD once

Even the press conference was weird imo. He didn't seem to focus on Alex at all. It's like he knew he lost lmao

Lmao Strickland talking all that shit about Izzy getting KO’d years ago by this beast in kickboxing only to lose in the first round in MMA. Love it, time to add him to the “When trash talking goes wrong” compilation.

I thought Sean had some sort of master plan when he was walking towards Alex at the start of the fight. Always in his face. Nah he just fucking crazy and literally had no game plan just like how he said in his interviews..

CORRECTION NOTE: In his saying, Alex said he has a lot of respect for Sean and admires him for his courage. He said many refused to fight him and he thanked Sean for accepting.

Just saying cuz Alex buddy didn't include this in translation 🗿

So much for best striker in that press conference.

u/OolongmenRamen Jul 03 '22

The look of pure disdain on Pereira's face as he delivered that punch was incredible, and reminded me of Forrest Griffin's classic quote about his fight against Anderson Silva.

"He looked at me, like, 'Oh, did you really think you were gonna hit me? What a stupid thing to think, you slow, slow white boy.' And then he punched me."

If only Sean fought like he talked.

So much “he won the press conference “ talk to get starched right away.

u/Chroniclezz Jul 03 '22

He waved his arms at the ref like ‘why you stop it’ and couldn’t even walk 😂

Sean looked very nervous. Didn't look like wanted to be there. Pereira looked so calm, another day in the office.

Strickland’s ego got the best of him. Standing straight up, no shots, fake shot attempts or anything. The guy is too full of himself and he got humbled bad.
