Media – Strickland’s coach: Sean turned down Chimaev due to travel issues, DDP wanted a rematch from Sean, but UFC refused | Sherdog Forums

On Sean’s next fight:

I think Paulo is a great opponent, and I don’t get lost in the rankings and numbers, you know. Paulo Costa is a dangerous opponent, regardless of where he is in the rankings at that moment.
You gotta watch your P’s and Q’s against someone like him. His athleticism and his fast twitch muscles, the power he brings… Man, that guy is always dangerous and I think he deserves it very much
of this fight.

About other names that were up in the air:

I know they’re hoping for Khamzat, but I don’t think Sean can travel to Saudi Arabia or anything. I’m not 100 percent sure, but I do know that Khamzat’s name was possible
but you know, Khamzat will be a big draw for Saudi in that fight. You know, in my opinion it’s more about the location than the opponent, so yeah, that was it.

And I met Dricus’ man, and we played paintball together. And dude, Dricus is a man with class. For example, I really enjoy talking to him. And you know, that’s what they said
they asked for the rematch for Sean, they tried to get that rematch. And the UFC wanted to go in a different direction, so that will probably be Izzy. Which is no problem,
I understand what the UFC is trying to do, but we need to focus on Paulo Costa right now. We have to get that victory.

About this current fight camp:

The great thing about Sean is that he is always in the gym. He is always working. It’s a very, very tough exercise and he and Johnny Eblen are neck and neck every time
here. I love having Johnny in the room because those two just push each other. I remember texting them both after practice in a group chat where I was like ‘man that was so’
impressive to see how hard you work together’.
