In a fiery exchange during a pre-fight press conference for UFC 297 in Toronto, the current middleweight titleholder, Sean Strickland, launched a verbal tirade against Canadian reporters.
The confrontation saw Strickland accusing the media and Canadians at large of blindly supporting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the transgender agenda.
Neil Davidson, a senior sports writer for Canadian Press, found himself at the receiving end of Strickland’s unfiltered critique.
Strickland’s confrontation was laden with provocative questions about the reporter’s political leanings.
“Were you a Covid Bank account stealer, too? Were you on board with that? Are you left-wing or right-wing? Were you a Trudeau? We got one of the f-king commies with a press. We got to know where this man stands. Were you non-biased?” asked Strickland.

When another reporter attempted to confront Strickland with a controversial tweet from December 2021, the middleweight champion, donning a shirt proclaiming, “A woman in every kitchen and a gun in every hand,” stood his ground firmly.
Before addressing the tweet, he probed the reporter’s political affiliations and whether he supported Trudeau, to which the reporter refused to answer
