Sean Strickland would find ‘great joy’ in taking Dillon Danis’ ‘life with my bare hands’

Sean Strickland has some ... thoughts about Dillon Danis.

Sean Strickland has some rather disturbing thoughts about Dillon Danis.

Strickland (No. 8) is currently preparing to fight former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight champion Luke Rockhold at UFC 268, taking place inside Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y., on Sat., Nov. 6, 2021, streaming via ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV). Based on new screenshots, it appears Strickland is also preparing to audition for Ghostface, Leatherface or some other horror movie serial killer.

It all started in an Instagram direct message exchange between Strickland (23-4) and Danis (2-0). Danis made a remark about a post that Strickland deleted.

“Little boy couldn’t take the heat [and] deleted his post. Never come at the king.”

That spurred a rather intense response from Strickland.

“I don’t know if you’re joking or not? Like, I’d kill you,” Strickland replied in a private Instagram message posted by Danis on Wednesday. “Not metaphorically speaking. Clearly, I don’t want to go to prison but if me and you met up and I had one free pass, I’d take your soul. I’d show you your own blood before I turned your mind off for good. It would bring me great joy to take your life with my bare hands. Again, I’d never do it or threaten you but you understand that to me, you’re just a baby lamb put on this Earth to be eaten. You understand this right? You’re prey.

“Again, this isn’t a threat, clearly I’d never do this is [sic]. I’m just making a point that you’re like a baby lamb to me. The fact that you’re not my food is a testimony to civilization that it has been created in such a way to where you’re able to walk this Earth as a lamb pretending to be a wolf with impunity. Odd thought.”

Sean Strickland, ladies and gentlemen.
