Nothing bright Sean Strickland, If you do not count the punches he will constantly glow in the face of his opponent.
Strickland won his fifth fight in a row on Saturday night Uriah Hall Five round aggressive and relentless punch release to beat a failed consensus decision at the UFC Fight Night Middleweight main event in Las Vegas.
Strickland (24-3) controlled the fight from the start and did not allow Hall — who There is Bright – go. When the fight started Strickland came out of his corner and did not stop moving forward. He threw 129 punches in Round 1 and landed 38, which set the tone.
Strickland, a 30-year-old native of California, badly injured Hall in the third and fourth rounds, and there was a finish. Hall, a Jamaican who fought from New York, was able to survive. But that’s all. The spinning kicks that fill his professionally distinctive reel are nowhere to be found.
The judges went heavily to Strickland 50-44, 50-45 and 49-46.
“Five rounds was a little fun,” Strickland said. “You know, the last round was always fun. You’re so tired, you did not worry about getting hit.”
That’s Strickland’s approach. And despite the longest success path of his career, he has zero ambition for the upward movement in the 185 pounds category.
“I don’t care. I want to fight,” he said. “I want to fight. I want to make money.”
He then pointed to “UFC” on Strickland Boy. “As long as I have that symbol under my feet, as long as I fight, I’m happy. Oh, my God, that gives me purpose. If it weren’t for the UFC, I would probably be cooking meth and prison.”
Hall (17-10) was battling on his 37th birthday and entered the night on a four-fight winning streak.
