«If you want to train a noob you're supposed to draw them out and let them feel confident then only lightly tap em to show them their mistakes without making them too afraid to try new techniques. Once they start ignoring the taps and try to use it as an opportunity to land their own strikes then you plant a few to teach them a proper response to the strike so they can learn properly but not to crush them. I'm pretty sure Sean new this was a publicity stunt so this guy could show how tough he was. If you go into a gym full of professional fighters you're not just training. You're in a political environment where huge reputations are a big part of the interactions. Sneako brought cameras and wanted to film himself in a heavy spar against a man with a huge rep and he probably isnt even a regular training partner. He's lucky the towel was thrown before his lights went out. Sneako got what he asked for.»
UFC Champ Sean Strickland beats Social Media Star 'Sneako' like a Red Headed Step Child.
Just ask streaming influencer Sneako, who was on the receiving end of a blood-inducing beatdown Friday at the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas.
The sparring session was streamed online and was waved off by UFC Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin after Sneako ate a series of massive left hands. Towels flew over the cage from multiple directions during the seconds that led up to the stoppage.
Despite the lopsided affair, Sneako did not go down. He absorbed what appeared to be near full-power shots from Strickland, who raised Sneako’s hand in a sign of respect after the session.
«That's like a grownup beating up a child. Only a cunt would go hard on someone without skills and training.»
«Sean couldn't even finish the dude with no skills whatsoever. It looks like Du plessis is right.»
«Dude sneako has a chin. I would have gone for the liver to finish him.»
«If you watch the whole round Strickland toys with him for a few minutes, then unloads. Sneako was trying to land his hardest shots the entire time. What did he think was going to happen? I did kickboxing when I was younger. I did it more for fitness, learning self defense, had two amateur bouts, and it's a whole lot of fun. I sparred with a guy that was training for an upcoming pro fight. I landed a light jab on his beak, and he snapped. He went bazookies on me. You have to understand that there is a big difference in the mindset of someone that does it as a sport, and someone that wants to fight for a living. People that want to fight are different than people that have to fight when needed. It's why you don't mess with a guy like Strickland.»
