Sean Strickland, the newly minted middleweight champion, is not one to hold back from expressing his opinion, regardless of how insensitive or controversial his words may sound.
In a fresh Twitter rant, the user known as “Tarzan” ridiculed football fans while mocking the first transgender cheerleader in the National Football League (NFL), Justine Lindsay. His comment, which was very transphobic, was as follows:
“When your buddy says, ‘I fed a cheerleader for the NFL,’ now we can all say, ‘how was he?'” Fans of the NFL should just head on over to the UFC, where none of the gals have ds.

Regardless of the feelings of the middleweight kingpin, Lindsay, a member of the Carolina Panthers TopCats cheering squad, considers her accomplishment of being a part of the NFL side to be on par with that of being a doctor or a nurse.
In a recent interview with Elle magazine, the 31-year-old model discussed the significance of the accomplishment for her in the following ways:
“I want to change the narrative for my transgender sisters and brothers, just to [let them know that] if you have a goal, go for it,” I said. “I want to change the narrative for my trans sisters and brothers.” Put an end to that daydream and start living your life. You can become a cheerleader for the National Football League, a doctor, a nurse, or whatever else you set your mind to… Everything that I am experiencing right now is something that is bigger than me… I’m arranging things in a way that will benefit future generations. This show is not going to be stopped by anyone.”
‘Tarzan’s’ mixed martial arts career is going strong, in spite of the odd comments he posts on social media. He won a unanimous decision at UFC 293, the most recent event in the promotion’s history, and dethroned the famous middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.

Colby Covington wants Sean Strickland’s middleweight strap
Colby Covington despises Sean Strickland, despite the fact that the two of them are two of the most loud personalities in the UFC.
‘Chaos’ described the middleweight kingpin as rude and confrontational in a recent interview with MMA reporter James Lynch. He also made it clear that he does not identify with what ‘Tarzan’ says.
In addition to this, Covington hinted that he may challenge Strickland for the 185-pound belt in the future:
“He is vocal in the most annoying way possible, and just plain aggressive. It merely opens the way for any and all middleweight competitors given that he is the person in the division who is the least difficult to defeat. If I’m being completely honest, this opens the door for me to go up to him and beat his a. This guy is the definition of a f***g punk… It’s possible that I’ll move up to middleweight and take the belt in that division. “Champion, champion,”
