A sparring session between Sean Strickland and social media personality Sneako ignited a heated exchange between Brendan Schaub and Nina-Marie Daniele on social media platforms. UFC Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin intervened to protect Sneako from former UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland during the session. Strickland had accepted an invitation from Sneako to box at the UFC Performance Institute, where Sneako endured several hard punches from Strickland.
Despite calls from spectators to stop the match, Strickland persisted until Griffin stepped in. The incident garnered widespread attention and sparked debate over whether Strickland’s actions crossed a line. On a recent episode of his podcast, “The Schaub Show,” Schaub shared his perspective on the Strickland-Sneako controversy, drawing criticism from Daniele.

“Listen here’s the thing about Nina Marie. Love the girl but she’s new. How long are we gonna pretend the UFC has morals and this is such a reach. Maria you attend every power slap event for starters. Which was created by the ownership of the UFC. Legit mma Journalist are banned for not giving cupcake questions from UFC events. Don’t even get me started on fighter pay. Assuming UFC is open to a YouTuber getting his ass whooped is far from a bad take. A lawsuit doesn’t scare the UFC please look into current lawsuit from over 100 plus former fighters. I can go on how this is far from a “reach” still love ya.”
Sean Strickland Explains Why He Won’t Box Jake Paul
The UFC Will Never Sign Off On The Proposed Boxing Match
Sean Strickland has expressed interest in accepting Jake Paul’s $1 million boxing offer, but he acknowledged the likelihood of facing legal action from the UFC.
Strickland responded to Paul’s offer by proposing a fight in the desert without cameras. However, Strickland’s UFC contract prevents him from participating in fights elsewhere and receiving compensation, thus making it impossible for him to accept Paul’s offer.
Strickland mentioned that Chief Business Officer Hunter Campbell informed him that Paul doesn’t generate significant pay-per-view (PPV) sales because his fanbase consists mainly of younger individuals who typically do not purchase PPV events.
