Sean Strickland is set to face off against his friend, Uriah Hall, at UFC Vegas 33 on July 31.

Ahead of the eagerly anticipated middleweight main event, Strickland has been reminiscing about his old training sessions with the Ultimate Fighter runner-up.

“I consider Uriah a friend of mine,” Strickland told LowKickMMA. “Not only (did I train with him) at Xtreme Couture but also back in Reign when Mark Munoz was throwing down. I’ve trained with him a lot, he was actually a guy I didn’t really like to train with because he was kind of a f*cking d*ck. The things he threw were so dangerous and he had like no control of it. So, when you spar Uriah, you have to fight Uriah to shut that down.”

Despite having enjoyed a friendly relationship Strickland insists he had no hesitation accepting a fight against ‘Primetime’.

The 30-year-old will enter UFC Vegas 33 with a true understanding of just how dangerous his opponent and just how badly this fight could potentially go for him

“Uriah’s path to success if catching me,” Strickland said. “He’s a very dangerous man and if I fuck up you’re gonna see me waking up on the canvas, that’s a likely possibility.

On the flip side, Strickland has a very clear game plan in mind for fighting Hall.  

“My path to success it like cutting down a tree and I’m a f*cking axe, man. I just gotta keep hitting it over and over again, from round one to round five, just say in his face. And he knows that. Maybe (I’ll) throw in a takedown here and there. He knows that. He’s going to try and catch me and I’m going to try to beat him to death.

Who do you think takes the UFC Vegas 33 main event? Sean Strickland or Uriah Hall?

Artem Lobov respects Jake Paul as a boxer but dislikes him as a person and is hoping to see Tyron Woodley “put him back in his place” on August 29.

The YouTuber has been pursuing a professional boxing career since 2020 and has picked up three quick wins against extremely low-level opposition.

Paul beat fellow internet celebrity AnEsonGib in his debut before spectacularly knocking out former NBA player, Nate Robinson on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. Last time out the 24-year-old emerged victorious against former ONE Championship and Bellator titleholder, Ben Askren.

On August 29, Paul is taking what many believe is the first real fight of his career when he squares off against former UFC champion, Tyron Woodley.

‘The Chosen One’ has serious punching power and has been fighting the best guys in MMA non-stop for years now. Although he’s clearly on the back end of his career, many expect Woodley to cause an upset next month.

In an interview with LowKickMMA, Lobov explained why he respects Paul’s transition to boxing and his willingness to fight someone of Woodley’s pedigree so early in his career.

“Jake is training. He is a boxer. He’s not just a YouTuber anymore,” Lobov said. “He’s the guy that’s been training in boxing. I have seen a lot of guys giving him stick for his opponent buts check any boxers record at the stage of the career that Jake Paul is at, they fight more or less the same guys, they don’t take on much tougher opposition.

“I mean, he’s taking on Tyron Woodley – a striker. I know he’s not what he once was but he’s still a very, very dangerous guy,” Lobov added. “He’s still a very, very explosive guy, you know, there are way easier fights out there for Jake Paul. So in that sense, he’s alright.”

‘The Russian Hammer’ went on to say that personally, he’s not a fan of Paul who has been relentlessly trolling his teammate, Conor McGregor, as of late.

“As a person, I’m not gonna lie I don’t like him,” Lobov stated. “He doesn’t come across well ever and he’s very, very disrespectful. Yeah, I don’t really like him in that sense. I hope Tyron Woodley beats him. I hope Tyron Woodley gets one for the MMA guys and puts him back in his place.”

Are you with Artem Lobov? Do you hope to see Tyron Woodley beat Jake Paul on August 29?
