UFC middleweight contender Sean Strickland has issued a stark warning to social media influencer Bradley Martyn, who has challenged professional fighters to street fights.
Martyn, a social media influencer and bodybuilder, has been making waves with his talent. bold claim that he can beat professional boxers in a street fight. This time, Strickland stepped onto the board and gave Martyn a chilling warning.
Strickland, who is set to fight for the UFC middleweight title on September 9, was recently asked about his chances in a street fight with 260-pound Martyn.
In an interview with Nina-Marie Daniele, Strickland candidly said: “Who the hell is Bradley Martyn? I don’t know this Bradley Martyn, but if you’re here right now and I can get away with it… I’ll take your life. I’ll kill you. I will put the gun down and I will take your damn life.”
Strickland went on to add, “Nina told me a little story… that you challenge people. Fuck, I’m in Vegas, show up, you fucker. Sign the waiver and we’ll see how many bones we can break in your damn face.”
“If he were right here and said, ‘Sean, I think I can beat you in a street fight,’ I would stand up. I would put the gun down and backhand him like a little dog,” Strickland concluded.
Strickland is not the first to object to Martyn’s bold claims. Jake Paul, who most recently defeated former UFC rival Nate Diaz, offered Martyn a seven-figure sum to fight Mike Perry.
Demetrious Johnson, one of the greatest UFC fighters of all time, also expressed interest in fighting Martyn, who is known for taking advantage of his size in these mock fights.
It’s not surprising that combat sports fans are skeptical of Martyn’s chances against professional boxers. Joe Rogan, the outspoken commentator, summed it up succinctly: “Bradley Martyn has no chance… He doesn’t stand a chance. No chance. He will 100% choke.”
Whether Martyn steps into the barn — or out into the street — to prove his claims remains to be seen.
