Sean Strickland’s Snowy Chokehold on Fan

A snowy chokehold that went viral

Even as Sean Strickland trades punches for snowflakes, his fighter’s instinct remains undiminished. Just days after his split decision defeat to Dricus Du Plessis at UFC 297, the former UFC champion, nicknamed ‘Tarzan’, was seen snowboarding. But what caught everyone’s eye was a video on Strickland’s social media. It showcases an unusual encounter on the snowy slopes with an audacious fan.

The footage reveals a fan daring to attempt a single leg takedown on Strickland. Impressively, he manages to momentarily bring the fighter to one knee. Yet, Strickland quickly escalates the situation, seizing the fan’s back and securing a rear-naked choke. This incident adds to Strickland’s history of unique interactions with fans, including a playful punch to an Israel Adesanya supporter in Australia and a stage-rushing fan at a UFC 297 event.
