One of the most polarizing figures on the UFC roster, Stickland is known for his outrageous takes online. However, the middleweight contender admitted that he went too far with some of his comments during his conversation with Schaub.
The No.7-ranked UFC middleweight claimed that his upcoming appearance in the Food Truck Diaries might be the last one he does, as far as long-form interviews go. On Instagram, Strickland posted a photo with the text:
"Just finished a Brendan Schaub podcast. I think this might be the last one I do... I'm not stable enough to speak... After a while I started advocating for puppy murder. No further questions..."
The 31-year-old refused to elaborate on his cryptic remarks. However, it appears that he is already apologizing in advance to fans who'd inevitably be upset with his comments.
Schaub also teased the upcoming episode with Strickland on Twitter. The former UFC heavyweight posted a photo of himself with 'Tarzan' on set.
Food Truck Diaries is Schaub's most popular program on YouTube. In the series, he hosts long-form interviews while enjoying meals with some of the most notable personalities in the UFC.

"Sean was definitely being himself and pointing out the things that he saw. And I definitely agree with everything that man was saying, whether it was serious or funny I was like, 'Okay!' You know? So hats off to you for that press conference, you were definitely the star of that press conference."
