Sean Strickland savages Dana White in X-rated rant to Daniel Cormier ahead of UFC 302

Sean Strickland savages Dana White in X-rated rant to Daniel Cormier ahead of UFC 302

Sean Strickland took aim at the UFC over fighter pay.

Sean Strickland unleashed an X-rated rant at Dana White over fighter pay ahead of his fight against

Paulo Costa UFC 302.

Strickland returns to action on Saturday when he faces Paulo Costa in the co-main event of UFC 302.

He makes his first Octagon appearance since losing the UFC middleweight to Dricus du Plessis, who secured a split decision victory at UFC 297 at the start of the year.

The American will be looking to return to the win column as he seeks to regain the UFC championship.

Ahead of facing Costa in a huge 185lbs bout, Strickland hit out at White and the UFC over the 'f**king sh*t' pay.

Speaking to Daniel Cormier, the 33-year-old took aim at what UFC fighters get paid in an explosive tirade.

"The UFC doesn't do the right things... it doesn't f**king do the right things... it doesn't do the right things with most of their roster," he exclaimed.

"If you go look at what these f**ks that run the UFC... see what they're making to what guys get paid it's f**king sh*t, dude. The UFC does not do the f**king right things and unless you hold them at f**king gunpoint, they ain't going to f**king do it."

Strickland earned a base pay of $500,000 for his clash against Du Plessis but could've earned up to $1 million based on pay-per-view points.

If he's still on PPV points, then he could pocket a similar purse for his UFC 302 showdown.

Fighter pay in the UFC has been a huge talking point over the years.

Strickland has been an advocate for fighter pay as he continues to voice his frustration.

The former UFC champion is 3-1 in his last four fights as he boasts wins over Nassourdine Imavov, Abusupiyan Magomedov and Israel Adesanya.
