UFC president Dana White is confident that Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira will put on a show when they meet inside the octagon for the middleweight title. However, Sean Strickland doesn’t see it that way.

They picked up wins at UFC 276 as Adesanya won a unanimous decision against Jared Cannonier, while Pereira knocked out Sean Strickland.

“Let me tell you something: Just because you can fight doesn’t mean you’re not a b*tch,” Strickland told “The Schmo.” “Don’t forget that. Ask that to Izzy. Just because you can fight, don’t mean you’re not a b*tch. And I think Izzy’s gonna beat Alex. I think Izzy’s gonna stand there, and Izzy’s gonna bounce around and outpoint Alex for five rounds, and we’re all gonna say Izzy

“He’s gonna float around and win,” Strickland said. “But at the end of the day, no one remembers how you win; they just remember that you win. So even though he’s gonna f*cking dance around on his little twinkle toes, he’s still gonna win. I hope he doesn’t, but I still think he’s gonna win. F*cking Izzy.”
