Sean Strickland recently praised Conor McGregor for being the epitome of success in the UFC and MMA as a whole. However, he contrasted his compliment by calling the Irishman a "white trash f**k."
Strickland, while on Michael Bisping's Believe You Me podcast, said:
"I just heard you talking about McGregor man. McGregor is the f**king like pinnacle of success and I'll tell you why dude. We're all just f**king dog and someone has our leash. You know, Dana is a dog with somebody, somebody is holding his leash. I'm a dog with Dana and he's holding my leash. The moment you become McGregor dude, nobody has your f**king leash anymore and that's like the f**king pinnacle of success and you can do whatever the f**k you want...Y eah but the end of the day, don't forget that McGregor is like a white trash f**k who came in the money."

Sean Strickland's disappointment with Conor McGregor stemmed from the Irishman's recent endeavors in Italy.
Conor McGregor allegedly punched Francesco Facchinetti, a DJ, singer and TV personality from Rome, Italy.
Facchinetti described the incident in an exclusive interview with The Daily Mail, saying the former UFC lightweight champion flipped at him for no reason whatsoever.
"We were having a drink together and everything seemed fine when suddenly he changed. I was a few inches from him when he punched me full in the face with his right hand. I went flying backwards and crashed into a table."
