UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland seems to have an “eye” for trouble… And, well, this time he wasn’t to blame – as a trespasser stepped on his property.
And Strickland pulled a gun on him.
The controversial fighter uploaded footage on social media, showing him pointing a firearm at an individual who was – as it would later turn out to be – accused of domestic violence.
The suspect, whose identity is concealed in the footage, is seen being pushed to the ground by Strickland and then held at gunpoint:

Strickland shared a bit about the incident:
Here’s what I know….
The guy was drunk stomping out a girl, a security guard seen it, he jumped in his car and drove off. Security followed him, hit a curb, completely shredded his tire, drove on the rim for awhile then jumped out and tried to hide at my house.
I initially thought he was stealing my car..
He was arrested.
According to MMA Fighting, it appears that Strickland isn’t facing any backlash from the law enforcement:
A spokesperson for the Las Vegas police did not comment on Strickland’s post and told MMA Fighting a name search for him did not return any results; a records request for a police report on the incident is pending.
The UFC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
