After several pre-fight run-ins spent touting the impending violence on display promptly followed by tepid point-fighting, Sean Strickland finally delivered for fans at UFC 276. Strickland, who made a point of seeing all of Alex Pereira’s punches from as close as possible, was felled by a Pereira left in the first round. Mostly viewed as a heel since his arrival on the big stage with the UFC, it’s refreshing to see that even the bad guy still has it in him to leave fans smiling and feeling like they got their money’s worth.
