Sean Strickland has faced Kamaru Usman, Alex Pereira, and Israel Adesanya in the cage, three of modern MMA’s most dominant fighters. He isn’t scared of anyone. At home, he loves his guns as well. We’ll combine that lack of fear with the armory he has at home and a home intruder and you have Strickland walking a guy down pointing a pistol at him.

Sean Strickland and the home intruder
According to Sean Strickland, a drunk person made his way to the wrong house. Allegedly, the man was drunk, accused of domestic abuse, and was fleeing police. His car popped a tire and he drove on the rim until his car gave out when he took off on foot.
He made his way to Strickland’s house unknowingly only to be met with a gun pointed at him. Sean Strickland said the following:
“The guy was drunk stomping out a girl, a security guard seen it, he jumped in his car and drove off. Security followed him, hit a curb, completely shredded his tire, drove on the rim for awhile then jumped out and tried to hide at my house. I initially thought he was stealing my car..”
Strickland also stated that the man was finally arrested.
Now the UFC middleweight champion, Sean Strickland won the title off the long reigning Israel Adesanya. In a shocking upset, he knocked the champ down in round one and took over the fight from there.
He is now scheduled to face number one contender Dricus Du Plessis in January at UFC 297. Strickland won’t be allowed a gun in the cage. But neither will Du Plessis.
Luckily the incident at Sean Strickland’s home didn’t escalate but this entire situation is the most Sean Strickland thing imaginable.
